The girls picking flowers for their mommies.
The (daycare) kids and I had fun making some Mother's Day gifts for their mamas this week. Thought I'd share some of the cuteness that they created! :)
Sorry for the horrible picture quality. (Gotta love phone pictures!) Here are some of the Mother's Day coupons we made them! Each child colored coupons and I hand wrote some of them specifically tailored to that mom.
I cut them out and then stapled them into a little coupon book.
The coupons say things like "Breakfast in Bed, Daddy takes kids so mommy can have a break, Addie will clean her toys, etc."
No Whining. That's a good one! LOL
Addie and Noelle also did some finger painting! They made flowers/gardens with their fingertips and finger paint. They loved it and thought it was so fun!
Baby Aubrey made something too, lol. It's so much harder to get a good hand/foot print from a baby than you think.
We also did some May Flowers with paintbrushes and forks. Baby Halle wanted to get in on some of the action too, haha.
I love how different these are, and how you see the individuality in their work. Noelle told me that she made a purple rain cloud, and rain drops. Addie made a garden. These turned out so great.
I also had Noelle and Addie fill out a little survey about their moms. (We did this while playing school, and Noelle was pretending I was her teacher, not her mom, lol. Whatever works.) I thought this was so funny. Noelle apparently thinks I really like broccoli. (I don't.) Also funny is that she put clothes for what I do at work, which is totally right on...she's thinking of the dry cleaners! lol. Smart. You can see that Noelle put in a lot of work on my picture. :/ Haha.
Noelle and I also decided to make a patch of peanut butter rice krispie bars for the moms!
This might have been because a certain mom is craving them herself...lol.
I love when she's in the kitchen with me. :)
Noelle also surprised me by coming home with some Mother's Day gifts for me that she made at school too! Sooo cute! I love her little tea pot and cup!!
Hope everyone else is having fun getting ready for Mother's Day!
