Last Minute Mother's Day Ideas

'Twas the night before Mother’s Day and all through the house not a creature was stirring, except for your spouse. I just returned home from an evening trip to the grocery store (I’d like to say I was getting healthy fruits and veggies, bit I was really getting chocolate, marshmallows and graham crackers for s’mores). At least I got the low fat grahams. As I was walking in, I saw more than a few men with kids (presumably) dads walking out with what looked like last minute gifts for moms – mostly pink crinkle foil covered pots of tulips. So, if your baby’s daddy is still searching for a way that for your child to celebrate you or you’re looking for something fun to do on your big day; check out these activities and crafts:

holiday activities
·         Bake cupcakes. Dad can do this with your little one or you can try this as a mother-child activity. Get artsy and make Impressionist or Jackson Pollock cupcakes, using the frosting as a canvas.

Art Cupcakes
·         Create paper flowers.

Art Flowers

·         Make a planter, packed into a take-out container. Reuse or buy mini take-out containers, decorate, add soil and a seed.

Mom Present
·         Make a mommy and me book.
