I appreciate the special nature of such an event as it truly gives the parent an opportunity to observe their child in a Montessori setting. Often times, they are amazed by the child's ability to simply pour themselves a drink or even more so, watch them clean the dishes! In this manner, the child is also able to share with their parent a meaningful part of their day.
During our "Muffins for Moms,' event, each child invites their mom to a special treat of muffins, fruit and orange juice. The child sets the place mats, napkins, etc. and serves their mom and themselves this tasty treat. Once they have enjoyed their snack together, the child cleans everything up and invites them to one of their favorite activities in the classroom. Needless to say, the moms are always thankful and welcome the chance to spend time with their child in the classroom. At the end, the child presents their mom the Mother's Day gift and card.
Happy Mother's Day!
