A couple of years ago I was T.I.R.E.D. of doing the same old, boring Mother's Day gifts!! We did the cookbooks, the coupon books, the handprint crafts...you name it. But, what really happens to those things when they get home??
I wanted to give my Mommies and students something that REALLY meant something. Something that they would carry with them forever.
I had heard of some people doing a Mother's Day Spa Day. I thought this was SUCH a cute idea!!! So, I put together my "Mommy Spa" pack. It's a bundle of ideas, printables, decorations, recipes and ideas to make your Mommy Spa a HUGE success!!!
Just look at the AMAZING day we had last year!!! The kids LOVED pampering their Moms and their Moms LOVED EVERY. SINGLE. MINUTE. of it!!! Just look at their faces in these pictures!!
This was the Manicure Station:
The "Together Time" Station includes a Survey that they fill out together about special "Mommy and Me" things. And, when they're done with that....photo booth time!! :)
Here is the Massage Therapy Station!! Throw in some face masks, massagers and back scratchers (Dollar Tree!!!!) and let the kids go to town!!
At this station Mommy and child just relaxed and enjoyed some reading material and tasty snacks....fingernail polish shaped cookies, cucumber sandwiches and Fancy drinks!!...(Hello, look at those FANCY plastic glasses from Dollar Tree!!! Ha!)
My FAVE...the Facial Station!!!! Sooooo fun! I even taught my Kinders how to gently massage Mom's temples as she relaxed in her facial!!
This Mom was SUCH a Good Sport!! She just "relaxed" while her boy caked her face!! Hahahaha!! Look at the top picture with his tongue sticking out!!! He's working sooooo hard to pamper his Mama!!! So sweet!
Due to some time restraints, we couldn't do all of the stations that I included in the packet. We also had to combine the
hair styling and moisturizing and fragrance station into one...but, it worked out perfectly!!! The kids LOVED putting the hair extensions in their Mom's hair!! (Dollar Tree, of course!)
More pictures of this station....
And...some more!!! This Mom LOVED her extensions so much, she had to take a selfie!!! Ha!
Everyone had THE. BEST. DAY. EVER!!!! I CANNOT wait to do it again this year! It was just so much fun!! And, great quality time! Just the Mom and the Kinder...no siblings or anyone else. They just got to focus on each other for that time. It was a really special day. One that I think everyone will always remember!

I also just made this fun writing craftivity to go along with The Mommy Spa! We are planning to make these and use them to help decorate for the day of the spa!!
Click on the picture to see it.
We also make these fun and cute little Cosmetic Bag Mother's Day cards! On the back of the bag, students write why they think their Mom is beautiful. The compact has the writing prompt "you make me blush when...", Students write a list of adjectives about their Mom on the lipstick and draw her portrait on the mirror. Click on the picture below to check it out too!
I hope this post inspires you to try something new for your Mommies!! I can't wait until our Spa this year!!!!
