While I love to do posts about cute flower crafts for Mother’s Day, I simply can’t keep up the ruse that that’s what Moms really want on May 11th. Don’t get me wrong…I LOVE crafts made by my children. I mean, I’ve made a career out of inventing craft ideas for kids (shameless plug…check out my new book, Project Kid!). But, if you want mom to really feel loved and appreciated, I say one (or more) of these 3 things will do the trick. (And don’t worry….you still get to be crafty!)
This is seriously the best product I’ve ever seen. On the back of the T-shirt is a road map. Lay on your stomach, preferably on a blanket in a quiet park, and actually invite your kids to drive their toy cars around the track. And voila! You’ve got a back massage. Made by the genius company, bky kid on Etsy.
Breakfast in bed is a lovely thing, but when your kids prepare your meal, sometimes you’re not quite sure what you’re eating. But, if you are served breakfast in bed on Mother’s Day with a chalkboard tray, food labels are easy as yogurt and granola! Found on Pinterest. (Any solid tray and a can of chalkboard paint will make this a family favorite!)
Nothing makes me grumpier than stepping on a lego or a toy car. The pain in my foot and the frustration in my heart are a bad combo. So listen up Dads! A Sunday of tidy toys is a gift that warms the heart and heals the instep. I found these awesome bags that have window panes so that the kids can see what’s what…too bad they are from Little Alligator on Made It in Australia. Anyone know of a product like this in the States? Inquiring minds want to know!
I know most of you reading this are moms. So my advice is just share this right on your Facebook page for all (read: your husband) to see!
