This is my second Mother’s Day. Last year on this day, H was not even a month old, while I was still recovering and learning to be a mommy. Papa M had arranged for a small celebration at home for his mom and his daughter’s mom 🙂 Thanks for the yummy cake, M.
This year, I have something else on mind. Since, H is grown up enough to join in some fun, I have planned to put Papa M & H to work and make something for me. Yes, I want to feel special :D.
To make Papa M’s life easier, here’s a list of 9 activities that he can do with H for mommy. Even you can take cues from this one and do something special with your little one this Mother’s Day…
1. Hand-Print Fridge magnets
These hand-print flower fridge magnets are easy to make a super cute to look at.
Won’t you love wearing your baby’s finger prints around your neck? Made with play dough, it’s a gift that’ll remain super close to a mommy’s heart.
3. Tile those prints
Your little bundle of joy won’t remain little any more. He or she will soon grow up. What better way to capture their fond memories than with this hand-print tile. Won’t this become a keep sake with that beautiful quote?
4. Frame your little one’s masterpiece
Hiya held a pen in her hand when she was 11 months old. She randomly scribbled on a paper but that piece is no less than a masterpiece for me. If you also think the same for your baby’s art, this activity is perfect for you.
5. Mother’s Day Greeting card with stamp of love
No celebration can be complete without a greeting card. How about making this beautiful card for the woman who is important to both of you? This one’s a Father’s Day activity, but I’m sure even mommies would love this stamp of love.
6. Handprint with picture frame
This is the hand you used to hold when I was 13 months old. How cute is this idea… isn’t it?
7. Impressions on heart
Use those tiny fingers to make those flowers and gift it to the mommy. Those words ‘Thanks for helping me bloom’ will fill her heart with joy.
9. Salt dough foot-print heart
Those dimpled and soft feet will soon grow up. Keep the memories intact with this salt dough foot print heart.
10. Foot Print Butterflies
Looking for a cute and quick Mother’s Day project? Here’s one for you. Aren’t these butterflies out of this world?
All the activities mentioned in the list can be easily done with children aged one and above. The activities require minimal effort from the kids but with a little help from an adult (read Papa) the final outcome will be awesome and heart-winning!
