Happy Mother’s Day Fingerprint Poem From Kids

(Author unknown)

Dirt and cookie fingerprints

are not too hard to find.

You’ll see them on our walls and drawers

Where I go, they’re left behind.

But soon I’ll learn to wash my hand

And tuck them by my side.

The walls and drawers clean once more

No grubby marks to hide.

So, here I leave my fingerprints

Each and every one,

Painted as a reminder 

of dirt and cookies and fun. 

Dear Mom

(author unknown)

Dear Mom,

I will love you forever;

And forever you will be

The most wonderful mother,

You mean everything to me.

I thought of buying you flowers

In the usual way

But I knew you would prefer

A forever bouquet!

When I’m trying to sneak that extra cookie.

Her voice booms loud, like thunder at night! 

We promise to behave, to toe the line, 

When Mom’s monster voice is in its prime!

But sometimes her voices are one of a kind! 

With silly accents and funny faces too, 

Mom’s bedtime stories always leave us in a stew!

With messy hair and eyes all a-glance-ster! 

But don’t worry, kids, it’s just for show, 

Mom’s still the best, even when her eyes droop low!

More Ways to Help Kids Celebrate Mother Figures

It’s important for teachers to recognize that Mother’s Day isn’t solely about biological mothers but also about celebrating all mother figures who play significant roles in children’s lives. 

Whether it’s a caregiver, grandparent, aunt, stepmom, or any other maternal figure, these individuals often provide the love, guidance, and support that shape a child’s upbringing. 

Encouraging children to honor and appreciate these mother figures not only validates the diverse family structures within our communities but also fosters empathy and gratitude among students. 

Teachers can create inclusive activities such as crafting cards, writing poems, or sharing stories that acknowledge and celebrate the unique bonds children share with their maternal figures. 

By embracing the diversity of family dynamics, educators can help children cultivate a deeper understanding and appreciation for the multitude of ways love and caregiving manifest in their lives.

These activities not only celebrate Mother’s Day but also promote creativity, literacy, and appreciation for the special women in children’s lives.
