Surprise moms with this handy Mother’s Day craft. You’ll need Bibles, 12-inch pieces of wide ribbon, sticky-back foam flowers and leaves, and ultra fine-point permanent markers.
Read Proverbs 23:25. Give children ribbon, and have them write “Proverbs 23:25” on it.
Say: God chose your mom just for you!
Have kids write, “I’m thankful to God for you because ____________________” on the ribbons. (Let younger kids write only the fill-in-the-blank part. For example, “You take care of me.”) Leave a ½-inch space at both ribbon ends.
Say: Moms help us bloom like flowers. Let kids each share one way their mom or an important woman in their life helps them.
Give kids the sticky-back foam stickers and have them stick two flowers back-to-back on one end of the ribbon and two leaves on the other end. Encourage kids to leave the bookmarks marking Proverbs 23:25 in their moms’ Bibles.
