Mother's Day 2012

We have had a week of activities this week ready for Mother's Day on 18th March. 

Our themed stories this week were:

You Should See my Mum.  By Martin Brown.

My Mum is Great by Gaby Goldstone

and Monkey Puzzle by my favourite Children's author, Julia Donaldson

Donaldson and Scheffler: Monkey Puzzle (Hardback)

The children have all been busy this week making lots of lovely things for their Mummy's.  We started off with these lovely handprint poems.  I printed the poems onto A4 paper and the children then had their hands painted and printed carefully above the poem; Butterflies for the two little ones and a flower for the older children.

Next we made some lovely yummy cakes.  The children all helped to add the ingredients to the bowl and watched as I used an electric whisk to mix it all together.  Then they laughed at me as I got covered in mixture as it came flying out of the bowl!!  I must remeber to wear an apron next time!

When the cakes were cooled, the children all iced their cakes with lilac icing and sugar butterflies. 

When our poem prints were dry we mounted them onto lilac card and added ribbon so they could be hung up at home.

We also made these lovely cards using another handprint, this time green, and the children stuck on foam flowers.

We also wrapped up a little present with a poem tag attached:

Unfortunately 2 of the children were poorly on Friday so we were unable to finish our wooden flower photo frames but will save them for next year.

Next week: The Very Hungry Caterpillar Day!
