    Children’s sermon / Sunday School lesson for Mother’s Day

    Mother's Day Object Lesson: 
    Childrens Sermon idea: Demonstrate how difficult being a mother is. Have one of the children pretend to be a mother. Get several other children to hold on to the “mother” yelling, crying and asking for help all at the same time. This kids sermon is a fun drama today.
     
    Objects lessonitems: None. You just need some kids as volunteer actors.   
     
    Children’s sermon: Good morning Children! Today is a very special day. Do you know what special day that is? Right! Its mother’s day today. Many people don’t know how hard it is to be a mother. I thought it would be a good idea to do a little acting to show you what it is like to be a mother. In order to do this I need someone to pretend to be a mother. Yes, Carol. Thank you for helping out. Now, I need someone to pretend to they are very hungry little boy. Thank you Jeff. I want you to knell down here at the “mother’s” knee tugging at her leg. I want you so say, “I’m hungry” over and over again. Act that out for me. (Encourage the child to be loud and repetitive) Wow. That was great. Now I need someone to come over here and tug on the other leg saying, “he took my toy, he took my toy.” (Have them demonstrate. Add other children to the picture:
    --One child pulling mother’s left arm out to the side saying, “I don’t want to go to bed.”
    --One child pulling at the other arm saying, “I want some candy, I want some candy.”
    --One child pulling at mom’s waist from behind, “There’s nothing to do, there’s nothing to do.”
    Now, I think we are all ready to put it all together. Are you ready to go? When I say go lets all complain at once. Go! (It makes quite a noise.) If you have a microphone ask the “mother” what it feels like. (If you don’t have a microphone you will have to ask the children to stop.) Ask her what it would be like if it went on all day.
    Thank the children and give them a round of applause for being such good actors.
    Debrief:
    That was fun. What I do want you to understand is that mothers have a very hard job. They often cook meals, help crying children, break up fights, etc. It’s a lot of hard work. It’s important that we remember how hard it is and do what we can to help out mothers. What are some things we can do to help our mothers? (Let them respond) Those are good ideas. We can help out around the house and we can say please and thank you. We can also pray for them and show them we are grateful for who they are and what they do.
     
    Children’s Prayer: Dear God, thank you for mothers or those special people who look after us. We know they work hard and show us lots of love. Help us to show our love and care to them and be thankful. In Jesus’ name – Amen
  • Mother's Day kids sermon

    Children’s object lesson /sermon for Mother’s Day

    Basic lesson idea:

    Short mother’s day object lesson:  Bring hats / objects (representing various rol)es) i.e.  Police hat, cook’s hat /stethoscope, nurses hat, hard hat, etc. Place them on various volunteers and explain what each does and how these are important roles /occupations. Then bring up a mother. Explain how mothers have a role that involves being skilled in all these areas!  (You may have to make up some hats / items if you don’t have them around the house)

    Full Children’s Sermon:

    Good morning children! Look what I have with me this morning. Do you know what this is? (Hold up a chef’s hat and place it on someone’s head) That’s right! It’s a hat used by cooks. Cooks are important because they cook up nice healthy meals to eat. What about this? (Hold up a stethoscope) Who wears this? That’s right, a doctor or a nurse. They have a very important role. If we become sick they help us to get better. They have a very important job! What about this hat? (Hold up a police hat and place it on someone.) That’s right. It’s used by police officers. They are very important for keeping the peace and making sure everyone behaves and gets along. (Continue on. You get the idea! )

    I am so thankful that we have people like this in our town. What would we do without them? However, do you know that there is someone who does all of those jobs? There is someone who is a police officer, a cook, a nurse, a taxi driver all in one! (Bring up a well-known mother and have her stand before the kids.) It is MOTHERS! Mothers keep the peace and break up fights when children aren’t getting along well. They cook meals to make us healthy. They are like a doctor or nurse when they help us get better or help put on a band aid. Mothers are amazing people!

    Today is mother’s day. We want our mothers (or whoever looks after us) to know how much we appreciate them. So make sure you tell them how much you love them and are thankful for all they do. Also, let’s thank God too. He is the one who made mothers!

    Children’s Prayer: Dear God, Thank you so much for giving us mothers (or whoever it is who looks after us). They are such wonderful people. Please bless them today and show us how we can show our love to them in return. In Jesus’ name. Amen!
