Print on card stock, laminate (optional) and cut out.  Cut the slit on the mother’s head so the hats can be placed on her head.

On each of the back hats, write a phrase to The Dearest Names (or whatever song) or various song titles you are singing: 
 
  1. Nurse Hat:  I know a name, a glorious name,
  2. Chef Hat: Dearer than any other.
  3. Chauffeur Hat: Listen, I’ll whisper the name to you:
  4. Detective Hat: It is the name of mother.
  5. Gardening Hat: Mother, so tender and kind and true,
  6. Maid Hat: I love you, I love you.
  7. Crown: Mother, so tender and kind and true, I love you.
 

Hats off to Mother's Poem

This is the poem it goes with:
 
My mother’s job is sometimes hard, and I have heard her say,
 
“The hours are long, and if I could, I’d like to change the pay.”
 
Her profession has variety, and I will tell you now
 
About the many hats she wears, and why and when and how.
 
1.  My mommy’s a nurser who fixes and patches, all of my hurts and sores and my scratches.
 
2. My mother’s a chef who fixes each dinner, fit for a king-a blue-ribbon winner!
 
3. My mom’s a chauffeur who drives pretty slow, but gets me to places where I need to go.
 
4. My mom’s a detective, and no one is greater, at getting the truth from me sooner or later.
 
5. My mommy’s a gardener and works really hard, planting and weeding and grooming our yard.
 
6. My mother’s a maid-at least that’s what she said- ’cause she cleans up the house and makes every bed.
 
7. My mother’s an angel-a queen in disguise-who teaches the gospel with tears in her eyes.
 
Today take these hats off, and please wear no other.  Let me do your work, to show I LOVE YOU, MOTHER!

Mother's Day Singing Time Idea

Before primary, hang the picture of the mother on the board using magnets.  Hang the various hats around her on the board.
 
Read the poem and as each hat is read in the poem, stop and place that hat on the mother.  Sing the line written on the back.
 
Repeat with the poem, exchanging the next hat and singing the next phrase in the song.  Repeat until the poem has been read, all the hats have been placed on the mother’s head and your song has been learned.

Bear Testimony

Bear testimony that one of the dearest names we say is mother!
