I love Mother's Day! Really, a day to celebrate me and being a mom!? Oh yes, and you better believe that my children (and husband) know that I look forward to it. No, I don't expect lavish gifts or diamonds (although, I wouldn't turn them away) homemade crafts, breakfast in bed and a clean house will do just fine. What I love the most about Mother's Day is that on this day my family stops the hustle and bustle for one day to be together because after all, that is my favorite gift and is worth more than anything they could buy.
Make your own Mother's Day Garden with your children like the one above that we found at kiboomu.com
Craft supplies you will need:
■Decorative accessories ( pom poms, rhinestones, glitter, ribbon, buttons, beads, glitter-glue and stickers)
Have the children paint the containers.
Once dry, have the children decorate the containers with rhinestones, glitter, ribbon, buttons, beads and stickers.
For one flower seed cup, we painted one using our fingers and a paint brush, then add a pom pom in the center and flower stickers all around the rim. For the 2 the other flower seed cups, we used stickers and pom poms from the dollar store to make it especially pretty for Mom!
Place the lid under the container and have the children fill the containers with dirt.
Then, have them plant the seeds and water.
Lastly, have the children using a Popsicle stick to label what they’ve planted, and stick it in the container.
And, voila, the children now have a Mother’s Day Flower Pot for mom!
