Mother’s Day

Barbara J. Feldman

Mother’s Day is a time to show our gratitude for everything Moms do. And for those Moms who are lucky enough to still have their own Moms to celebrate with, it’s a double holiday. Happy Mother’s Day to all!

  • Billy Bear 4 Kids: Happy Mother's Day4 stars

    Billy Bear comes through for Mom, with gifts to print, color and cut; postcards to send; and certificates to fill out. My favorite clicks are the printable Photo House picture frame that can be colored and filled with family photos, and the always popular Promise Booklet of coupons to relieve Mom of her daily chores.. Other unique electronic gifts include Happy Mother's Day wallpaper and screensavers for Mom's computer.

  • Danielle's Place: Mother's Day Crafts and Activities for Kids5 stars

    Danielle's Place offers both Mother's Day crafts and instructions on making homemade cards. My picks include Refrigerator Photo Magnets (I'm crazy about fridge magnets!), Window Clings (the kind you might put on a sliding door so the birds don't fly into the glass), the Button Bracelet on an elastic band, and the Mother's Day Poem on a Doily. "When I see all the things you do / I can tell your love is true."

  • Kaboose: Mother's Day Cards5 stars

    Wow, these craft cards are so beautiful! With over twenty unique ideas (and step-by-step instructions) you can create a stained glass card with tissue paper to hand in a window, a cupcake card for moms with a sweet tooth, or a teacup card with ribbon and pearl beads. Each craft includes a difficulty rating, suggested age range and user ratings on a scale of five.

  • Kids' Turn Central: Celebrating Mother's Day4 stars

    Kids Turn celebrates Mom with certificates (World's Best Mom), e-cards (Thanks for Always Being There), and a place to post tributes. What Kids Turn also offers, that no one else has, is a short discussion of Mother's Day conflicts. "Not everyone has someone they call Mom. Many kids have more than one person to call Mom. Some thoughts and ideas on spending Mother's Day with the different people you can call Mom." The article addresses issues surrounding step-moms, birth moms, foster moms, parenting grandparents and volunteer moms such as those from Big Sisters.

  • Mother's Day Central5 stars

    With crafts, poems, recipes, greeting cards and activities, Mother's Day Central is a one-stop mommy party. Best clicks include 101 Poems for Mom, 151 Mother's Day Craft Ideas, free Printable Mother's Day Cards, and a collection of several dozen quotes about motherhood. "When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child." Sophia Loren
