This is a fun craft for a group of kids to make for Mother's Day.  We did it with a group of about 60 or 70 kids.  It requires some prep work beforehand, but the kids really enjoyed making it for mom.  Depending on the amount of time you will have to make this craft with your group of kids will determine how much you prepare ahead of time.  We didn't have a lot of time, so we cut out the Foam Rectangle, Sun, Bluebird, Poem, and a bunch of long Strips to use as Borders out of the Craft Foam Sheets with the sticker backing.


Supplies needed to make Mother's Day Poem and Magnet Craft:

  • Craft Fun Foam Sheet
  • Yellow, Blue and other Colored Craft Fun Foam Sheet with the sticker backing (makes it easier, but you can use the regular foam sheets and glue)
  • Small silk flowers
  • Poem printed on Paper or Cardstock (this PDF has 12 poems on one page, if you aren't doing this craft for a group of kids then you can copy the poem below and format it how you want)
  • Glue Stick
  • Scissors
  • Magnet with sticker backing

Directions to make Mother's Day Poem and Magnet Craft:

  • Cut a 4 inch by 4.5 inch rectangle of any color Craft Fun Foam Sheet
  • Cut your printed poem out and glue it on the Craft Fun Foam Sheet rectangle
  • Cut a Sun and BlueBird out of the Craft Fun Foam Sheet with the sticker backing (or use glue on the regular foam sheets)
  • Decorate your poem any way you want, just make sure to put the Sun, Bird and Silk Flowers on it because they are talked about in the poem

Mother's Day Poem:

My Mother Dear
Like sunshine in the morning that wakens day from night,
Like flowers in the springtime so colorful and bright,
Like happy songs of bluebirds that fill the air with cheer,
A person bright and lovely is My Mother Dear.

“My Mother Dear,” Children’s Songbook, 203
