Make Mother’s Day this year about you and your children. Celebrate the extraordinary mom that you are. You may have to bring the family together, which is perfectly acceptable. Being upfront with your children about how you want to celebrate your day shows them that you value being a mother and you remove the speculation off them making your day special.
Here are a few tips to keep in mind:
- If you have teenagers or, ask them to prepare your favorite breakfast, which includes them cleaning the kitchen or wash your car so mom can be styling and profiling for the entire week.
- For moms that have children under the age of 8, Create a “Mother’s Day Coupon Book.” I created the below coupon book:
Take 8×10 piece of paper, cut into four pieces. I used white paper for the demonstration, but construction paper would look great as well.
Stack the four pieces of paper and staple the papers together with two staples placed on the left side of the stack.
Once the stack is stapled together with your favorite color use a marker and write “Mother’s Day Coupon Book” on the front page of the book.
On the remainder of the pages write on the top of them the following statement: “This coupon entitles Mommy to….. and on the bottom of the pages write Expires: Never.
In the middle of the pages write what you want. Some examples of what you could write may include, a “Big Hug.”
On the back you could write the following:
This is the time to be creative on what you want for the remainder of the year as a mom. My two children are under the ages of 8 and appreciate mommy’s artwork. Also, I don’t have much time to be fancy with scrapbook techniques. This is an easy project that you’ll can do together. Please keep in mind that you will only receive the gift if you use the coupon book.
- I am a DIY Wannabe and I enjoy making scrubs for myself. This allows me to pamper myself on a budget. I am a subscriber to Amy Huntley of “The Idea Room” at http://www.theidearoom.net/ and she provides some awesome ideas on how to make sugar scrubs. I particularly like her brown sugar scrub at http://www.theidearoom.net/2013/05/brown-sugar-scrub.html.
May your Mother’s Day month be filled with lots of love and hugs.
