You know how your mom always knows where to find stuff? Now you can return the favor! Barbara J. Feldman, owner of Surfnetkids.com, has compiled an assortment of Mother’s Day Resources. Just the way mom knows where to find dad’s car keys or your clean socks, now you can have Mother’s Day activities at your fingertips. Today’s tech savvy kids almost always turn to the Internet when they need help with something, especially if mom isn’t available. One of Feldman’s links will take you to a repository of Mother’s Day websites. She’s done all the work, (just like Mom) and all you have to do is narrow down your choices. Several of the listed websites provide printable activities such as coloring pages or gift ideas. Other sites talk about the historical significance of Mother’s Day.
Need something inspiring to show mom how much you care? Another link takes you to an immense library of Mother-appropriate quotes. Plug the quote of your choice into a homemade card, or print it out on special paper and frame it. Perhaps reading the poetry selections will inspire you to write something personal to honor your mother on her special day. The huge variety is sure to produce something to tug on your heartstrings, as well as your mother’s.
Mother’s Day coloring pages are also available. Maybe dad needs a little help making a special Mother’s Day Card. Here he can find pages for Junior to print and color while Dad tries to find the perfect gift online. The drawings could also be used as templates for gift wrap, greeting cards for grandma, or (wouldn’t mom be proud?) a tattoo. Let the kids color a picture that will proudly adorn your Frigidaire.
If the kids need to distract Mom for a while as they try to clean the kitchen or wash the car, they can direct her to the Mother’s Day Slider online game. It is challenging enough to keep her occupied for a little while, probably longer. Long enough for the kids to decide who’s making breakfast in bed and who’s rubbing her feet.
And for the most devoted child, there is a link to an encyclopedic collection of Mother’s Day crafts. These crafts range from so easy a preschooler can do it to challenging jewelry designs for unique gifts. For example, one of the Mother’s Day crafts is flowered pens. The child simply wraps floral tape around an ordinary ink pen and attaches a silk blossom to the end. Craft ideas, materials lists and how-tos overflow from the MakePlayDough website. Teachers and Day Care organizers will easily find an assortment of ideas for their students to create Mother’s Day gifts. Enterprising children can navigate all of the crafts to find just the right gift to make for their Mother.
She makes your breakfast. She makes your bed. She makes your day. What are you going to do for her? Click on this link for more Mother’s Day resources so you can honor your mother the way you really want to: https://www.surfnetkids.com/mothersday.htm .
