last minute cheat sheet for dads: easy mother's day crafts for preschoolers

May 7, 2010

My favorite day to go to the grocery store is Valentines Day. Around 5:30. I don't go for the groceries. I go to watch the last-minute husbands/boyfriends frantically tear through the seriously depleted valentine aisle in search of an appropriate card, gift, or bouquet for their sweethearts. And I just stand there and watch. And giggle a little bit. It's really the funniest thing I've ever seen. 

I've never been to the grocery store early Mother's Day morning, but I imagine the scene is similar. Maybe. I don't know. Maybe Dads are more on top of the Mother's Day thing than I think. But just in case, I thought that instead of laughing at them, I'd help them out a bit this year. Here's a list of some easy crafts you can do with your kids that are sure to make their mother smile. 

You've probably seen all of these posts already, but wanted to list them in one place. I looked through my past posts and picked a few that would work for Mother's Day gifts. (Email this list to dad!) 

Got any good ideas to add to this list?

One great thing about having daughter in preschool is that my husband doesn't have to worry about the gift from her. She keeps dropping hints about all the "secret surprises" that will be revealed on Mother's Day :)

Great ideas! I just posted some Mother's Day ideas today. We made flower photo magnets using bottle lids, handprint tile coasters, homemade cards and more.

I'm glad I'm not the only one giggling at the last minute shoppers! My husband took my son out this morning for "errands" so I think we're all set!
