Mums in Holbeach were definitely feeling the love from their little ones thanks to some special craft evenings.

Eighty-five Holbeach Primary Academy pupils took part in Mother’s Day crafts organised by the PTFA (Parent, Teachers’ and Friends’ Association), making personalised, colourful letter racks and cards for the big day on Sunday.

Leaves on pot-plant shaped cards definitely had a personal touch because they were created from drawings of each pupil’s hand.

On the pot, children completed the phrase “I love my Mum because ...” with their own words, which included “she gives me sweets and chocolate”, “she helps me” and, for one super mum, “she is awesome”.

Lucy Penney, from the PTFA and a learning mentor at the school, said: “We asked the children what they would like to make and they said they like to make things as personal as they can.”

Year 6 pupils were on hand to help the younger children at both sessions.

Lucy said: “They were helping the younger children with their cutting out skills and helping them maybe to think more creatively with their designs, painting and colouring.”

She said the sessions gave pupils of all ages an opportunity to make items for their mums, grandmothers or aunts.

The PTFA organises similar sessions for Father’s Day.
