Mother's Day Ideas

Happy first day of May.  I can't believe how fast this school year has flown by.  Only a few more weeks left till summer vacation.  I've already started planning the 'Last Day of School /Welcome to Summer' festivities.  You can check out what I did last year HERE.

But first, Mother's Day is coming up.  I've noticed for the past couple of weeks my most popular post has been the one I wrote last year about kids card and craft ideas for Mother's Day.  If you'd like to check out the full post you can go HERE.  Below is a recap along with ideas for older kids, adults and what I made for my mom and mother in law last year.  I'll be posting later this week or next with some new ideas.

Brilliant Beginnings preschool made this cute Mother's Day card.



A Day In My Life has created this Father's day card, but I think it would work just as well for Mother's day.
 

Here's a custom newspaper from MarthaStewart.com that the kids can color and fill in the blanks to make mom feel extra special.

Amy at Our Daily Obsessions received this cute poem for Mother's Day last year.

Here's a simple and quick Mother's Day bouquet from The Trendy Treehouse:


Here are some ideas for older kids or adult children to give their moms (full post can be found HERE):

Does your Mom like to garden?  If so, I bet she'd love this gift basket of seeds.  DaNita from Delightful Order came up with this cute idea.  I love the seed packet holders, they read "a mother plants seeds of LOVE, HOPE, JOY!"


These MOM blocks are cute.  Lorraine from Extreme Domestication just mod podged some photos onto wood blocks to create this beautiful and easy gift. 


Mom's love photos of their kids and Grandmom's love photos of their grandkids.  So making a gift using photos of your kids is a great idea.  Kim from The Inadvertent Farmer made this photo project.


Printables make a quick and easy gift.  Just print and place in a frame.  I'm wondering if you could change the colors to match your Mom's decor.  Or paint the frame the same bold color as that of the letters. 

Check out these printable from Holday Snobs  



And here's what I made for my mom and mother in law last year.  You can find the full post HERE.
