Mother’s Day is just around the corner folks! Are you ready? I know there’s always a scramble at our house and I bet we’re not the only ones who need some last minute inspiration for something special for the moms and grandmas in our lives. I especially love ideas that are quick and easy but come out beautifully (since we are terrible procrastinators, easy and fast is always key for these kinds of projects) But even if you’re a plan ahead-er, we’ve been gathering some lovely ideas that your loved one will adore.

These are such a fun way to use leftover chunks of last summer’s pool noodles! And what a cheerful reuse they are! I bet you could add circle of noodle to the center to make them more daffodil than daisy but either way..So cute!

Mother's Day Chocolate Flowers

We always make flowers for my mom for Mother’s Day, but this year I wanted to mix it up a bit and make her some edible ones.  That is why we decided to make these yummy Mother’s Day Chocolate Flowers.  I know my mom will love them because she loves flowers and she loves chocolate, so this is a win-win. The fact that the grandkids made them just makes these the best gift we could make for grandma.

This was actually our first time ever making candy like this, so I was not really sure how it was going to go. I have to say it was way easier than I thought it was going to be.  Both girls were able to help, which just shows you how truly easy this was.

I decided to just melt the chocolates in a plastic bag to make the whole process quick and less messy which ended up working great.  While one bag was in the microwave melting, I had my daughter making flowers with another one.  It took less than 10 minutes to fill our mold using 4 different colors.  Then, we just waited for them to harden and we made some more.

Beaded Hanger

Make a special hanger for a gift. Tutorial at ThinkCrafts.com

My cousin just had her first baby, a little boy.  She is bringing the baby down to visit her mom and I am so excited to meet him!  I sure do miss little newborn baby snuggles, there is nothing like it.  So I thought it would be nice if the girls made their new cousin (or is it 2nd cousin?) a nice little present.

I figured every baby has clothes and needs hangers, so what better gift for the girls to make but these adorable beaded hangers.  We made one for my other cousin who has a daughter the same age as my little one too (that is why one is pink).

Not only is this a really fun and practical craft/gift, but it is great for my little ones motor skills.  She really enjoyed putting the beads on the hanger and it was great practice for her hand eye coordination.  It is also a great project to help teach counting since you can do the beads in different patterns (three of one color two of another).

I did help with the ribbon part of this craft but the girls put all the beads on, which makes this a truly special gift.  These would make great baby shower gifts or they would be perfect just to make to hand your own baby clothes on.
