  • 1. Parent Ministry Sermons - Mother Says Use these games on Mother's Day for a children's sermon. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeHolidayIdeas.com
  • 2. Activity You can play this game like “Simon says.” but simply replace the name “Simon” with “Mother.” www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeHolidayIdeas.com
  • 3. “Mother Says” has a very simple rule. If a child is given a command and the teacher does not preface it with “Mother Says”, children must ignore it. If they mistakenly follow it they are eliminated from the game. Continue until only one child remains. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeHolidayIdeas.com
  • 4. Variation Instead of playing “Simon says”, play a game of “Mother May I?” One person (it could be Mom) stands facing away from a line of kids. She then chooses a child (at random, or in order), and announces a direction. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeHolidayIdeas.com
  • 5. These follow a pattern, such as, “Brian, you may take (NUMBER) “giant steps” forward/backward.” The child responds with “Mother may I?” Mom then states “Yes” or “No”, depending on her whim, and the child complies. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeHolidayIdeas.com
  • 6. If the child forgets to ask “Mother may I?” he/she goes back to the starting line. First one to touch Mother wins. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeHolidayIdeas.com
  • 7. Other possibilities are “regular steps” “baby steps” “ballet steps” “Scissors steps”- jump while crossing your feet, then jump while uncrossing them “Banana steps”-laying down with feet at current spot, marking where the top of your head was, and getting up there for new spot, and “Bunny steps” – a hop www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeHolidayIdeas.com
  • 8. Application Obeying our Mother’s is one way of showing them we love them. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeHolidayIdeas.com
