A group of moms asked me, “What are the best Mother’s Day craft ideas you have seen this year?” First, let me take a moment to say “Thank You” to all the teachers out there that help make Mother’s Day so special. Our Mother’s Day lunch was decorated in the Candy Land theme.
The Princess and I decided to pose for our photo at the lollipop stop before eating. The teachers took these colored paper plates and strung them together to hang from the wall. The pails that you see on my left are filled with colored Easter grass and giant lollipops. What a great idea!
Below is a picture of me in a dress that she drew on my place mat.
When people walked inside the building there was this sign on the floor that read, Welcome To Candy Land! They had placed different colors of construction paper on the floor leading to the meeting room for lunch. To the right was my homemade paper tissue corsage. Next is her place mat in the theme of lollipops. Pic Monkey would not cooperate with my pink hands photo. There is a hand on each side and in the middle is a circle with glitter on it which makes the whole thing look like a piece of candy. My hands down favorite craft idea is the “first aid kit” that included:
- a tissue to dry my tears
- a hug and kiss like the ones I give her
- a tiny eraser to rub out her little mistakes
- a bingo chip because I can always count on her
- a tea bag so I can take a break
- her tiny hand for me to hold
Melt my heart!
My T-Rex has been busy at his school too.
The word collage is thoughtful but those popsicle sticks that spell out Mom, you can tell he was really trying hard to get those letters just right. It’s on a 12*12 scrap book paper with a photo print out. His colored flowers are well done too. The poem reads Mothers are called Mom, Mommy, Mother, Mama. Mothers are love. Mothers are unselfish, forgiving, busy, love. Mothers are givers, comforters, helpers, love. Mothers are all these things wrapped up in one. Today we honor Mothers for all the things they’ve done.
- Moms are the best.
- Oh what a wonderful mom.
- Together my mom and I bake cookies.
- Helpful moms help with homework.
- Every mom loves her child.
- Rocking moms are sweet.
He made a heart puzzle with descriptive words on the pieces (nice, amazing, lovable, cuddly, awesome, lovely). The next sheet is where he discusses the important thing about me. He thinks it’s caramel! He says it’s squishy, tastes great and you can eat it.
These are poem tulips from our boy genius.
Mom makes marvelous
Masterpiece maple sausage
I hope she makes more
Morrow on Monday
Roses are red
Violets are violet
My mom is a riot
And pretty too
Mom is a good cook
And a very loving person
She’s pretty awesome
Ah the Mr. Kramer, I have to give him a shout out for leaving chocolate hidden in my medicine cabinet, my drawers and on top of my dresser. There are probably more that I haven’t found yet. That is what you call showing appreciation for the Mother of your children. Well, at least in my book.
Will smile for chocolate!
Happy Mother’s Day to you and if you are sharing a post with your goodies please let me know I would love to come over and see them.
Have you ever had great expectations about something but it turns out to be not at all what you thought?
That was my Mother’s Day. You can read my guest post here —> gfunkified.com.
