It’s almost that time again. You know the time of year when you run around making sure all the grandmothers and godmothers in your life receive some seriously great gifts and fridge-worthy crafts from your children. The fact that you’re a mother too may slip a few minds as you scramble to make things perfect for all the mothers in your life. This year, why not steer dad towards a few of these simple, inexpensive and adorable Mother’s Day crafts that he can do with the kids. It’s time you were celebrated and here are some great ways to do that
You can do this one. You don’t even have to be that handy. You just have to go to the hardware store and tell them your genius ideas (you’re welcome) and the kindly hardware store worker will hook you up. Next take your goods home and let the kids decorate that tray before you crazy glue, or nail or whatever you need to do to get that thing to stay together. Hey, I’m just the ideas person.
How sweet is that vase? Granted, maybe the kids should be a little older if you’re going to attempt this one with them. It’s definitely something they’ll love to keep forever. Again, if you need some help getting organized visit a craft store and then the helpful associate that a clever writer gave you this great idea for a Mother’s Day craft and she’ll be glad to help you out.
I know, I know. Like me, you are getting a little tired of all the hand and footprint crafts. I thought I had my fill, too, until I saw this beautiful bouquet. This is worth hanging on your wall for years to come. Even those these hand and footprint crafts are all over the place, it doesn’t change the fact that your little ones are only small once and a little reminder of how tiny they were will always make you smile.
Mom’s need one thing above all else. Well, maybe two things. Your undying love and gratitude and utterly luxurious pampering. Take the kids to pick out some luxury items that mom can indulge in. Trust me, she’ll enjoy this one. Along with this gift you need to give her a little time to enjoy it. Taking a warm bath in decadent bubbles isn’t the same when little fists are pounding on the door.
However you decide to celebrate mom this Mother’s Day, don’t forget to include the kids. Trust me, mom will think it’s that much more special.
