It is so important to honor our mothers, but so difficult to find an age-appropriate way to do so! This year, I printed off simple cards and had the children decorate them using stickers and crayons. Because there were no outlines, the drawings were all unique, original, and creative. I also traced their hands, as a memento from when they were so small. The other activity we tried was bath bombs!
It was lots of fun, but SO messy. My daughter, Kali, asked, "What did you expect?". I guess I didn't expect, or plan on, white stuff everywhere - the walls, chairs, table, in people's sleeves, and definitely in their mouths! It makes sense, as when we bake we try tastes of everything, but maybe next year we'll try a new craft. To make bath bombs, all you need is baking soda, corn starch, and citric acid (from breweries). You can add essential oils and some colour, put it in a mold, and voila - Happy Mother's Day!
