A Mother’s Day song to encourage the true spirit of the holiday. Mother’s Day, in much the same way as Valentine’s Day, has become a big commercial affair making it all too easy for the truth of it’s simple message to be overwhelmed and lost in a frenzy of pink, frilly excess. A simple homemade card with an earnest attempt at best hand writing is so much more special than a shop bought glossy one. Just as a simple, charming posy is much more appropriate than an impressive bouquet.
As always, children show they care by doing brilliant little spontaneous things, and this means so much more. An outing all together on Mother’s Day is a perfect way to celebrate. A trip to the nearest windy hill to fly a kite, or an impromptu picnic in the woods will be cherished as a much warmer memory than something that has been manipulated by all the Mother’s Day adverts.
Obviously, small children will need help to prepare for Mother’s Day, and as Dad’s sometimes need a bit of help getting organized with craft activities it might be a good idea to set out all the required materials to make a lovely card, and suggest they spend a bit of quality time glueing and sticking together!
This Mother’s Day song is sung to the tune of ‘London Bridge Is Falling Down’ and is so easy to pick up quickly, with lots of scope to add some extra verses if you wish.
Mother’s Day Song
Make a ca-rd for your Mum, for your Mum, for your Mum,
Make a ca-rd for your Mum, It’s Mother’s Da-y!
Pick some flowers for your Mum, for your Mum, for your Mum,
Pick some flowers for your Mum, It’s Mother’s Da-y!
Tell your Mum you love her so, love her so, love her so!
Tell your Mum you love her so, It’s Mother’s Day!
Give your Mum a great big kiss, great big kiss, great big kiss,
Give your Mum a great big kiss, It’s Mother’s Da-y!
(To be sung to the tune of London Bridge Is Falling Down)
