How Kids Say “Happy Mother’s Day!” Around the World

mother's dayWe love our moms so much here at Little Pim that we wanted to find the most ways we could to tell them. We think we did a good job with our “I Love” “Mom” “Happy Mother’s Day” language guides, below.

Pick a phrase or word and language and have your kids print them (help if you need to)  along with their handprint or hand outline on heavy cardstock to create a one-of-a-kind Mother’s Day Card.

We bet mom will say a big Gracias, Merci, Xièxiè, Grazie, Danke, Arigatō, Shukran, Toda, Spasibo, Obrigado! (THANK YOU!)
