activity days mother/daughter activity

We had a very successful Mother/Daughter activity on Friday night. The theme was "spring picnic" and it was simple and enjoyable.

A light dinner was served--rolls, meat and cheese, potato salad, fruit, chips and a yummy variety of cookies and bars.

My assignment was to make a favor for the girls to take home. I chose button cover ponytail holders.



I love how they turned out. They were simple to make, but a bit time consuming. I made 45 sets, plus extras for Ella and her friends. They saw me making them and asked it I would make some for them. I let them choose the fabric they wanted and they were so excited.

For games at the activity, the girls and their moms did sidewalk chalk art, played freeze dance (Rachelle and Denise have got the moves! Owww!). Moms tend to get a little crazy when it's just the girls. :)

For the craft, there was a station for writing love notes to mom or daughter--so cute--and another for designing and coloring a cutout of toes and flip flops. The girls loved this activity! It was simple and fun--my favorite kind.


Marina drew the outline, colored some samples and set the girls loose with markers. I brought home some extras and Ella spent hours coloring them. I got a copy of the original and Marina said I could share!

 

Download your own flip flops here. Thanks, Marina!

  1. That was Emma's first Activity Days experience and she LOVED it! She enjoyed listening to all the girls tell about the activities they liked doing this past year. She could hardly wait to get her hands on those flip flops to color! And we love the hair bands!! Thanks for all your hard work - it really made a difference for Emma.
