It’s going to be a busy, fun and colourful weekend with St Patrick’s Day and Mother’s Day on the same weekend, but I won’t be complaining. It just means that I need to be a little more organised and do some advanced planning 🙂

I like to do things that are easy and fun but a bit out of the ordinary and so have been hunting for fun things to do with the kids in the lead up to Mother’s Day. I found some brilliant inspirational idea’s from howdoesshe.com (see links for the tutorials) – These ladies are amazing! These activities involve a little more DIY than normal but there are ways around that 🙂

I also love the family blocks (idea # 8) and the photo puzzles (idea # 10) that How Does She? makes in the post “10 Things To Do With A Block”. See the link for the tutorial

Kids Puzzles

Wooden blocks in lots of sizes can be bought from Craftshapes if you don’t want the hassle of cutting your own.

Disney Family Fun has some great craft ideas for kids that they should be able to manage if you help with the supplies…

These Paper Blossoms by Disney Family Fun remind me of spring and make a lovely arrangement for this time of year…

Happy Mother’s Day. xx
