Mother's Day

It's coming up fast, and there are a ton of activities to choose from, but here are a couple MORE ideas!!

Aside from having an activity to do with kiddos, this one can be a good start to a conversation about the relationship your client has with their mom. 
Many of our treatment plan goals have to do with cooperation and ways these kiddos react to conflict at home... Do they fight a lot or struggle to be on the same page or to communicate at all?  Shocker right? 
When was the last time they were able to work through a problem?  How did they work through it, or what can they do on their part to better the interactions and communication with mom or other family members?  

You can also give them an opportunity on a card to make a list of what they enjoy or love about their mom, sometimes we just need a reminder of why it is important to work hard at our relationships.

Clay leaf print magnets

Air dry clay
Nature walk to collect leaves
Print them into soft clay
Let it dry and paint
Attach a magnet on the back

Plant in a can

Decorate a soup can with Mod Podge and magazine clippings. Plant a flower or some wheat grass for a classic Mother's Day gift. 

Make a card

Ask them to write an original poem
Name the top 5 reasons they love their mom
Or make a little bird like this one here

"Youth fades; love droops; the leaves of friendship fall.  A mother's secret love outlives them all."
-Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. 

Happy Mother's Day!
