Weekend Sun & Mother's Day Fun

Hey Friends ~

This weekend brings plenty of reasons to smile, with promises of sunny weather and a chance to celebrate Mother's Day on Sunday. 

There are so many creative ways to help make mom feel extra special this weekend. Here's a few we came up with here at Skagit Kid Insider. 

Get Crafty: Supply your kids with crayons, paint and paper and let them create a one-of-a-kind card to show mom how much they care.

Dance Party: Gather all the kids together, turn on some upbeat music and have a dance party around your living room. Better yet, choreograph a silly dance routine and send the video to the grandparents so they can join in the fun. 

Meal Service: Leave the planning, execution and cleanup to your partner and kids on Mother's Day and enjoy a delicious meal and some time to yourself. 

Garden Project: Get the family involved in planting some new seeds or flowers in your yard and watch them grow all summer long. 

 We would love to hear from you! If you have any other fun ideas, feel free to share on our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/SkagitKidInsider/ !!!

A lot of local residents in Skagit county are making cloth face masks and it would be wonderful if we could keep the money we spend on them in our community. Check the list below for people making and selling cloth face masks locally. 

I encourage you to do your own research on cloth face masks and purchase a mask that meets the specifications of your researched results. Kid Insider is not vetting these masks in any way.
