Mother’s Day came a little early for the moms of 22 first graders in teacher Larissa Weaver’s class.
On April 29 the students hosted a late-afternoon spa day celebration for their mothers in their classroom, which they had decorated with beautiful handmade paper flowers. During the special event, the children made their moms feel like queens for a day.
They delighted in pampering them and serving delicious treats as well as presenting them with gorgeous thumbprint necklaces they had earlier created. The students also were trained by a massage therapist on how to give simple back and arm massages. After giving their mothers massages, they then showed them heartwarming video messages they had previously filmed in their honor.
“The whole concept was for kids to learn to celebrate their moms by taking care of them. Over the last couple of weeks, the students had been preparing excitedly for the event!” said Weaver.
