A fun activity celebrating Mom’s love

In advance:
Before the activity, ask Mom to secretly complete the questions on the back of this card—one card for each family member, including herself. Seal her cards in a top-secret envelope.

Faith talk:
To begin the activity, discuss the questions on the card. Everyone has preferences. Some people are more vocal about their likes and dislikes, and everyone knows that John doesn’t like cats. However, other people are less vocal.

  • How do you think mom’s answers will match up?
  • Who do you think mom knows the best?
  • How do moms pick up on these preferences so well?

Have a “judge” open Mom’s answers and score each card for accuracy. Compare the scores when grading is completed.

Who does Mom know best? Award Mom and the winning family member with a special dessert night out. (Or, you could give the prize to Mom and the lowest scoring family member so they can get to know each other better.)
