Welcome! I am a mom to two wonderful kids, a lovely retired greyhound, and a wife to a great husband. Needless to say, there are a lot of daily messes to clean up around our house. Daily Messes is my blog to share ideas on things to do with your kids, snack and meal ideas, crafts, and holiday fun. I hope you find something to enjoy!

Mother's Day

Mother's Day is May 12 this year! If you need gift, activity, or food ideas, check out the links below!

  • Bake Mom A Cake
  • Caramels. These are are really easy to make and the kids can even help (pour ingredients into a bowl, stir, etc.) They are really tasty too! (They were gone within a few days at our house.)
  • Egg Casserole. This is another easy recipe. It would make a great item to make for Mom on Mother's Day.

  • 112 Mother's Day Gift Ideas
  • Make Mom a unique necklace. I recently had a necklace made from Kidz Can Design. Your children draw a picture, you upload it to the site, and they make a necklace from the drawing. Each of my boys drew a picture of themselves for me. NOTE: This process takes awhile, so it will not arrive in time for Mother's Day, but you can show Mom the pictures they drew and the website. I placed my order on 3/26 and received the necklace on 4/27.

FREEBIES: I did some digging and here are some of the freebies I found for Mother's Day.
  • Mom bumper sticker
  • Mom Badge. Kids can make a free Mom Badge at Pottery Barn Kids the week of May 6th. 
  • Mother's Day Craft 5/11 at participating IKEA's.
  • Free small breakfast and coffee at participating IKEA's on Mother's Day.
  • May 10th bring Mom to a Public Garden for free (with coupon in link)
