Happy Mother’s Day! Use the following story as a creative and fun way to give out door prizes or gag gifts to a group of mothers this Mother’s Day weekend.
Have any number of moms sit in a circle and give them all a gift. Read this humorously and relatable story aloud and instruct each mother to pass their gift to either their RIGHT or LEFT as the story prompts.
At the end of the story, the gift they are left holding is the one they take home!
Just Another Day in the Life of a Women Game Script
A woman’s work is never done
There are meals LEFT to plan and errands to run
Clothes LEFT to wash and floors LEFT to sweep
RIGHT at the dawn, she rises, still half-asleep,
And goes RIGHT to work cleaning the rooms
Making good use of vacuums and sponges and brooms
She picks up the mess LEFT from the night before
The rushes RIGHT out to the bank and the store
The milk was LEFT empty and the bread’s been depleted
She fills up her cart with the things that are needed
Having LEFT off her shopping she hurries on back
With armloads of boxes and bags to unpack
RIGHT into the pantry and freezer and shelves
She neatly arranges them all by herself
The kids will be hungry RIGHT after school
So she sticks a snack RIGHT in the fridge to keep cool
With the time she has LEFT before the children run in
She straightens the furniture and vacuums again
The children arrive and eat the snack she has LEFT
Tracking dirt RIGHT onto the floor she just swept
She helps them get RIGHT onto their homework and then
Goes RIGHT to the kitchen for dinner to begin
She scurries LEFT and RIGHT as best she is able
To make sure a healthy meal gets LEFT on the table
When she knows much it will get LEFT on the plates
By the children who seem to have RIGHT fickle tastes.
They’ll say they’re RIGHT full and can’t eat one more bite
Until the time for dessert when they’re suddenly all RIGHT
And ready for sweets and the pie she’s LEFT cooling
They were just way too stuffed and now they’re all drooling
But she cuts them a slice and makes them RIGHT merry
As they all stuff themselves with delicious blueberry
Then they’re RIGHT off to bathe and brush and pajama
No time LEFT to fuss or argue with Mama
She kisses the LEFT cheek and kisses the RIGHT
Then reads them a story and tucks them in tight
And they drift RIGHT off to sleep, angelic faces beaming
Mom creeps out on tiptoe when they’re LEFT to their dreaming
Another day’s done, she thinks with a sigh
With all the activity, the hours flew RIGHT by
Still, she is grateful and happy and blessed
As she heads off to bed for a RIGHT deserved rest.
