Mother’s Day 2017 at Kool Kidz Tarneit

Mother’s Day 2017 at Kool Kidz Tarneit

On the 10th, 11th, and 12th of May Kool Kidz Tarneit held their annual Mother’s Day afternoon tea.  The families enjoyed a yummy selection of fairy bread, anti-pesto platters, cakes and cheese platters for afternoon tea while enjoying activities with their children.  Each room did something special with their Mums while enjoying some delicious treats the children had made.

Honeybees completed sand pastings with the Mothers and had a photo booth, which the families loved.

Our Snugglepots room made chocolate chip cookies for their Mother’s and had experienced such as necklace making and sensory playdough.

Our Beetlebugs room had a button art and craft activity and playdough hearts with glitter which the children took home. They also had a photo booth, taking many photos of the children with their Mother’s.

Our Jitterbug room made lovely bath salts, Key rings and completed questionnaire for each of their children. The responses were so heartfelt and funny, the Mothers loved them. While at the service the children and Mothers made cards and enjoyed the playdough which had lavender through it, giving it a wonderful smell and different texture.

The Butterflies room made bath bombs with their children, on the day the children painted their mother’s nails, ate yummy chocolate balls and took some great photos using their photo booth.

The Caterpillars room made bookmarks and card’s for their mother and on the day enjoyed making family pastings, natural playdough and painting their mother’s nails with nail polish.

The Kinder room had a lovely display of the children with their mothers. The children were asked why they love their Mum and what makes their Mum special. The children’s answers were very touching, with the children declaring that they loved their Mum because she was simply their Mum. The children also gave their Mum’s hand massages, painted their nails and made Mummy puppets with their Mums.

Kool Kidz Tarneit would like to thank our mothers, step mothers, aunties, grandmothers and other influential females that were able to join us for the afternoon.
