“Look to your mother. Learn from her strengths, her courage, and her faithfulness. Listen to her. She may not be a whiz at texting; she may not even have a Facebook page. But when it comes to matters of the heart and the things of the Lord, she has a wealth of knowledge.”
Then, we all took turns saying something that we loved about our mothers.
For our activity, we made these fun Flower Pins for mom. They are super easy and very inexpensive to make.
- Long, narrow piece of fabric, approx. 1.75” X 35” (Cotton fabric is best)
- Craft Thread
- Large Needle
- Large Bar Pin
- Glue Gun
- Thread your needle with the craft thread, tying a knot at the end. Begin a running stitch about a ¼” into the length of your fabric strip. Continue stitching the entire length of your fabric, ultimately creating a gather.
I brought some paper and envelopes so the girls could write letters of appreciation to their mothers. It was a nice activity that gave the girls who finished early something to do.
The girls had a great time with this project and were amazed that they could create this cute flower so easily. We did it in an hour with nine girls. If I had to do it again, I would allow for an extra 15 minutes so they could help with clean-up!
