MARVELOUS MOM CELEBRATION
Invite mothers, grandmothers, and special female guests to
accompany children to this party during your Sunday school or
children’s church hour.
Serve cupcakes and punch. For punch, add scoops of rainbow
sherbet to raspberry juice. Then pour lemon soda over the sherbet.
Have children serve their guests.
Pin the Corsage on Mom-Tape a drawing of a woman’s head

have the player press the corsage onto the drawing where he or she

has played, award each mother a real corsage.

M&M’s candy and O-shaped cereal (such as Cheerios). Explain
that each pair should spell “Mom” out of their candy and cereal as

then award two mugs full of M&M’s candy to the winning
