Celebrating Mother's Day at The Holiday Zone


Writing Prompts for Mother's Day



  • Make a Mother's Day card for your mother.

  • Create a memory square for your mom. Draw a picture of a favorite memory, and write a sentence or two about it.

  • Create a Mother's Day coupon book. Brainstorm a list of things that you can do to help your mom. Write each thing on a separate sheet of paper (using your best handwriting). Add borders and decorations, create a coupon book cover, and staple together.

  • Make a list of things you love about your mother.

  • Create a word web of adjectives that describe your mother.

  • Write an acrostic poem based on the word M-O-T-H-E-R.

  • Write a letter thanking your mom for the things she does for you.

  • Write about your funniest memory of your mother.

  • Finish this sentence in as many ways as you can think of: "My mother is a great mom because ..."

  • Create a Venn diagram comparing and contrasting your mother and your grandmother (mom's mother) OR your maternal and paternal grandmothers.

  • Keep a week-long "Mom Journal." Observe your mom each day for a week, and record the many things she does both for you individually and for your family as a whole -- from helping with homework to doing laundry. Write them down. Then, take time to thank her for doing them.

  • Create a Book of Memories for your mom. Choose five or six favorite memories and write about them. Illustrate if desired.

  • Imagine that you and your mom switched places and you suddenly became "Mom for a Day." What would it be like? How would you feel? How would your life be different? Write about it.

  • Write about a lesson you have learned from your mom.

  • What makes a good mother? Write about it.

  • Write about the best piece of advice your mom ever gave you.

  • Write a biographical sketch of your mom.

  • I wanted to do something special for my mom, but I was flat broke. I thought and thought ...

  • "WKRX is inviting kids to nominate their mothers as 'Mother of the Year.' The winning family will win an all-expense-paid trip to New York City," Miss Brewster told her fourth grade class. Sue started thinking. She'd always wanted to visit New York City, and she knew she had a great mom ...

  • "Ugh. I need a vacation," Mother groaned, as Matt and Mary ran in the back door, tracking mud on the freshly-mopped floor. "You've got it, deary," an unfamiliar said. "Poof!" Matt and Mary turned around just in time to see their mother vanish a cloud of smoke. Hovering just above the counter was a funny-looking tiny old woman. "Who are you?" Mary asked. "And what have you done to our mother?" Mark added. "And who's going to take care of us?" Mary continued ...

  • Joe emptied out my piggy bank and carefully counted the coins. This year, he was going to buy my mom the best Mother's Day gift ever.
