Mommy Make-Over Day!

We have been so excited about today!  It was finally Mommy Make-Over Day!  I began by having the kids all sit in their mommy's laps while I read "Love You Forever" by Robert Munsch. 
 We then sang the "A, Your Adorable" song. So cute!!!!


Then came the part we were all waiting for. 
The make-over!
 The kids LOVED doing their mommy's hair, make-up, and nails!




 We made a Mother's Day card WITH our mommies.


The kids served their mommies cookies and juice.
 We then showered them with gifts. 
 The mommies received the flowers we had planted earlier in the week and these
 adorable photos with a special message on the back.




I wish you all a very Happy Mother's Day Weekend!

  14. Wow Paula ... looks like sooo much fun! I absolutely adore those clever photo frames but I can't figure out how u did it (matched the stem perfectly with kids hand grasping it!) Would u mind explaining the process for me???

  15. Super easy, here's how I did it... When taking the pictures of the kids be sure that their fist is off to the side a bit. Otherwise the stem will be covering their face. Each frame has to be done separately. I put the picture in the frame and mark the top of the frame with a sharpie where I will need to insert the stem. Then my wonderful hubby drills a quick hole where I have marked. (Remember to remove the picture before you drill!) Just remember which frame goes with each picture. Hope this was helpful. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

    1. Thanks for the reply Paula, I get the drilled hole at the top of the frame to insert the stem. Sorry but I must be a bit thick lol ... I am still not understanding how the stem disappears behind the child's hand then reappears below! Do you have to cut through the photo too and feed the stem behind the photo at the top of the hand and then re-feed the stem back through to the front of the photo at the bottom of the hand? Arrgh. Please explain some more if u don't mind.

  16. No problem, I'm a very visual person too! :) Yes, you have to cut a small slit in the photo just above and below the fist. Place the photo in the frame, insert the stem through the hole, then weave the stem in and out of the fist. This part is a little tricky because the frame only allows you to have a little wiggle room. I then give each student a piece of paper that is the same size as the frame and have them write a mother's day message or draw a picture. I place this in the back of the frame to cover up the stem from behind the photo. Feel free to ask more questions if you have any.

    1. Ah ... now I see. Thank you Paula, for taking the time to explain the process so clearly to me. I really appreciate it! Yes, I imagine the hand part is super fiddly but very worthwhile. I'm def doing them next year! You are a super clever lady and very creative too. I came across your blog quite by accident (I am very new to all this) but I am going to stick around and check it out in detail now. Thanks again :D

  17. You are very welcome! Mommies will love you for taking the time to make this precious gift for them! (I'm not that creative, I stole the idea too! The one I saw had the child holding a sucker.)
