A Portrait of Motherhood Around The World
Day 35: Happy Mother's Day! This Sunday we're celebrating our moms and the amazing things they do to support us, care for us, and love us. This weekend, we're asking your family to do something special to honor the mothers in your life. Check out this photography project in CNN of moms from around the world as they document their lives on disposable cameras, capturing the beauty of motherhood everywhere.

Moms show up for us in so many aspects of our lives. On Mother's Day, and every day, show the moms in your life how much they mean to you!
Let's Talk
After clicking through the photographs, use the questions below to kick-start a great conversation with your family:

  • What stood out to you about the images captured by mothers and their families? What did you relate to?

  • How does your mom support you? What is your favorite thing you have learned from your mom?

  • What's your favorite image of you and your mom? Have you told your mom why it's meaningful to you?

  • Bonus! What's your favorite way to spend time with your mom? Make time for that activity this weekend while you celebrate Mother's Day.

Do Something
Flowers for Mom
Grab some construction paper - we're making bouquets! What better way to show the moms in your life you appreciate them? Roll your construction paper into a cone and fasten with tape or glue. You can decorate with string, stickers, pictures, or whatever you think your mom will love best.

Gather some flowers, leaves, or other natural items from outside and arrange your bouquet. Pick a color scheme or mix and match colors for a rainbow display. If you don't have access to flowers learn how to make DIY flowers here with tissue paper and pipe cleaners.

Make a bouquet to give to your mom on Mothers Day and make a second to surprise another mom in your life. Leave a bouquet hanging on someone's door or on their front porch so they can start their Mother's Day off with a smile.
