Do you know what many (if not most) moms want for Mother’s Day? To be loved and appreciated! Sure it’s nice to get a gift–especially if it’s heartfelt or has some special meaning. But the truth is that, for most of us, the main thing that we like about getting gifts is just knowing that our families love and care about us enough to take the time to do something nice for us. Often, it’s the time and the thoughts we treasure the most.
IMPORTANT NOTE: At the bottom of this article, you’ll find information about how to enter a giveaway for Mother’s Day. We hope this article is a blessing to you, and we hope (after reading it) you’ll enter the giveaway. Twenty-four bloggers have written articles to bless moms, and we’ve all chipped in to give away five $100 prizes. Happy Mother’s Day!
Today we’re sharing with you a fun, printable booklet (3 printable pages with information about 10 countries) to learn more about how families in other countries celebrate this holiday. Do they give gifts? Write poems? Have parties? Let’s find out!
Countries included are:
- United Kingdom
Whether you choose to give gifts, plan some kind of special get-together, or do an act of service for the mom in your life (or whether you’d like to request one of these for yourself!), we think you’ll enjoy learning how families in other countries celebrate this holiday. If you’d like to make this activity even more educational, you could even grab a world map and find the countries as you read about each one.
Then do something fun for your own mother or encourage your children (especially if you’re a dad reading this!) to do something to make Mom feel special this Mother’s Day. Maybe the kids could help make a special meal for Mom and give her the night off (from cooking and from doing dishes!). Maybe they could make homemade cards or even write some poems or sweet stories or memories. Maybe they would like to make a craft or even draw some pictures.
No matter what you choose to do to celebrate Mother’s Day at your house, we do hope this printable booklet helps to add some fun and information to your celebration. We truly do appreciate all of the moms out there and your commitments to your families. You are loved!
