I'd seen this on Pinterest, and thought they would make the perfect Mother's Day activity. I photocopied my hand and then wrote the text by hand in purple metallic texta. One is scanned because we couldn't get the photocopier to work at first, but I like the black and white photocopies better.

The text says
"Need a pat on the back?
Stand here ---->
Happy Mothers Day!"

I put about 8 of them up around my kids school, and I noticed at least one teacher smiling at the sight of them, and trying one out.

Have a pat on the back mums, and know your hard work is noticed and appreciated, even if it's by total strangers on the internet in Australia.
