Ideas for Mother’s Day

There is absolutely nothing you could give a mother on Mother’s Day, if it was bought or made with love that would not be treasured. It’s a time of year that children all over the country get to flex their creativity muscle and come up with all sorts of new ways to show their appreciation for a person who will love them unconditionally, no matter what.

With the introduction of websites like Pinterest and the countless hours of video footage on YouTube, you’ll never be short of ideas to help inspire your children to create something magical. The best part? There is something for every budget. It’s no secret that 2016 will be a tough year for a lot of people, so perhaps something simple like a pad of coloured paper to make a flowering tree of hearts from their hands

If your kids are a little older and feeling more industrious, perhaps they’d like to try their hand at some homemade hand cream or making their own paper roses? Also both very inexpensive options.

Whatever it is that you choose to do this Mother’s Day, just remember that for moms, it’s not about the ‘what’ but about the ‘how’. So take the time to let the kids get creative and enjoy the process as much as possible. Your biggest challenge should be getting them to keep it a secret until the day arrives.
