Are you wondering how you can create and enjoy lasting memories with your mom this year for Mother's Day? Are you racking your brain trying to think of ways to show mom just how much you care while staying at home vs a big outing?
It can be really hard to decide what to give your mom, mother-in-law, or other special moms in your life for Mother's Day! There really are so many wonderful gifts out there. But there is one gift that is both timeless and priceless that is sure to make her feel like the most special mom in the entire universe.
This year, give your mom the gift of heartfelt time spent together.
And you know what? Mother’s Day doesn’t have to be only about your biological or immediate family. Maybe it’s bittersweet for you because your mother has passed away, or you didn’t have a relationship with her. Perhaps you want to decide how to celebrate with your children and family this year. Or maybe you really want to be a mother but it just hasn’t happened yet.
No matter what your situation or what your feelings are around this holiday, one thing is for sure... it is the perfect day to spend your time cherishing, loving, and paying attention to the children around you who just might need it more than you know.
This Mother’s Day, I want to help you make memories, celebrate relationships, laugh with family, and cherish your loved ones. And I have the PERFECT thing for you to have a great holiday and have fun at the same time!
This Mother's Day Binder is filled with fun activities to do with the special Mom in your life. I know I can’t wait to fill out the "Get to Know Your Mother" & "All About Mommy" writing prompts with my young daughter and son! It's going to be our own version of "Kids Say the Darndest Things". 🤣
This Mother's Day Binder is not a gift that you wrap, give, and walk away. These moments last a lifetime AND you can turn your Mother's Day Binder into a keepsake to cherish for years and years to come. Open your binder and take a walk down memory lane at any time.
If you already have a binder around the house, then there's no need to go out and buy another binder. Just use one you already have and you’re ready to go.
If you do need a binder, you can grab them from Amazon here:
It's always so hard for me to pick just a handful because there are all helpful, but if I had to choose these are my favorite printables in the Mother's Day Binder.
If you're anything like me, you're always taking the pictures but rarely are you ever actually in the pictures. This Mother's Day I challenge you to change that.
For each and every day in May, have your child take a photo of you. Ask them to write what they see in the picture, or have them tell you and you write it down for them. What an absolutely beautiful and priceless way to show your mom just how much you love, cherish, and appreciate her.
Don't worry about how you look, what you're wearing, makeup or anything else. Just take the picture. In twenty years when you look back at the memories made, none of that stuff will matter. You'll be glad they took the picture.
I just think this is really cool because it gives you the first-hand perspective of your mom's life views and experiences. What an intimate way to get to know more about your mom!
Or you can answer these for your own children. They will love getting to know you more as well! After all, you are their sun, moon, and stars. 🤩
Either way, these can be treasured forever and passed down.
There are 16 total prompts including:
