Great Mother’s day gift idea + free printable

My daughter goes to an activity twice a month where girls her age get together and play, do crafts, learn etc.  They made Mother’s day gifts this last week.  She was so excited, she couldn’t wait to give it to me.  It was Super cute and she graciously said I can feature it here so you guys can use the idea if you want.

I call it a “Bath Cream Sundae.”  Didn’t she do an amazing job?  Here is how she did it:

The cup is a plastic one from Dairy Queen.  You have to look incredibly close to see the little DQ on the top.  I’m assuming you can buy them pretty easily or you could use any clear cup.  I think the Cocoa cola ones would be cute.  You can get those at the dollar store.

Put some of your favorite bath salts in the cup.  You could probably also put a sugar scrub.

On top is a bath scrunchie with a felt red pompom.  They stuck a plastic straw in the side and put a little tag on it.  Viola.  Easy and cute right?

I made up a few printable tags in case you decide to do this.

 I made another Mother’s day tag for those of you not doing this idea.

Then I got to thinking…this idea could be great for any girls gift.  I could see this as a neighbor gift or teacher gift etc.  So I made you a tag that doesn’t say Happy Mother’s day.  You could write in what event the gift is for or you could put who the gift is from.

I am so thankful to my beautiful daughter for being so excited to make something for me.  And I loved her sweet smile as she couldn’t bear to wait to give it to me.  Those are the moments!!

I hope you can use this idea and the tags.

Here are a few other Mother’s Day ideas I think would be awesome.
