Mother’s Day Craft and Bible Message for Children


1. First, give each child a small paper jewelry box.

2. Then have kids decorate their boxes with puffy paint, markers, and plastic jewels.

3. Direct kids to cut small strips of paper and write one simple, specific way to show love and kindness for their mom or caregiver on each strip. Here are some examples:

  • Give a hug.
  • Do a chore without being asked.
  • Give a flower.
  • Say, “Jesus loves you!”
  • Make a card.
  • Really listen when she talks to you.
  • Tell her what you like about her.

4. Finally, let kids place their ideas inside their treasure boxes.


Discuss these questions with children:

  • What are some ways you can show love to your mom or special caregiver?
  • When was it hard for you to do a good deed for your mom?
  • Why does God want us to do good for our parents or caregivers? 

Say: God helps us love our moms and do good things for them. Take this treasure box home and choose one good thing to do for your mom every day. You can even do all the things every day! 

Read Hebrews 10:24. “And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.”

Say: This Bible verse says we can encourage one another to show love. So here’s your mission: Invite other people in your family to choose a paper from your treasure box and do that action for your mom, too! It will be a good reminder for all your family members to love and honor each other. 

Pray: Dear God, thank you for showing us how to love others. Please help us spur each other on toward love and good deeds in our families every day. In Jesus’ name, amen.
