As moms we love to be spoiled by our little ones on Mother’s Day. Breakfast in bed with maybe an eggshell or two, cuddles and a homemade card. But asking for gifts for something we love so very much is not something we do. But what if it was for something sentimental and a keepsake? Perfect for Mother’s Day: Mom and Daughter Pearl Bracelet Sets are a great way to share something sweet and simple with your little girl that will last over time. Then someday, she can pass it down to her little girl. But this gift could also be for a goddaughter, niece or any little girl that is special in your life. They could even be used for a flower girl! The possibilities are endless for something that is timeless and meaningful.
I remember those simple gifts over the years at memorable events that really made a difference for me. Things that I want my daughters to be able to see/use and know that I love them so much that I want them to enjoy something that I hold so dear to me. Those small glimpse in their memories will last forever and be a wonderful connection we’ll have through the years, even after they’e grown up.
These bracelets are made of fresh water pearls, a sterling silver closure and made right here in the USA. If you have more than one little princess, you have the option to order more to go on everyone’s wrists. If this darling gift is for a Christening or Baptism we offer the ability to attach a cross charm as well. Mom and Daughter Pearl Bracelet Sets are a great start to traditions as well as one to begin even if they are not so little.

Spring Tea Party: After being cooped-up all winter, everyone is anxious to get outside. Why not host an outdoor spring tea party? Isn’t this one adorable, with floral teacups and a burlap tablecloth?
Sprinkled with Love: This photo is actually from a Mary Poppins theme birthday party. But we liked the idea of sprinkling baby with love for an April baby shower. Aren’t these lace umbrellas to die for?
Springtime in Paris: Who doesn’t love Paris in the spring? Decorate with colorful bouquets on little wrought iron bistro sets. So fun!
We had to share! We found three fun spring treat recipes to try with your kids over the break:
Dipped Frozen Fruit (Top): Frozen fruit is always a cool, refreshing treat! Jazz it up a bit by covering them in melted chocolate! The kids will love dipping and devouring this spring dessert! We found these Frozen Fruit Treats Dipped in Chocolate from Luux.com.
Butterfly Pretzels (Bottom Right): What little girl wouldn’t enjoy decorating these Butterfly Pretzels from Miss CandiQuik? All you’ll need is pretzels, m&m’s and chocolate. But why stop at butterflies? Let the kids create flowers, bugs and other fun spring things. Gather treat decorations of all shapes and colors and let their imaginations run wild!
Jello Frog Ponds (Bottom Left): Aren’t these frog ponds cute? Your little man will love devouring this Frog Pond Jello from See Vanessa Craft. She gives it a different spin by adding other creepy crawly gummies. Add a paper umbrella and some graham cracker ‘sand’ for a beachy jello cup. Add a school of sweedish fish. So fun!
We’re celebrating Spring Break at One Small Child this week! Many families take advantage of this vacation time to travel together. But we’re opting to stay in town this year. Let’s talk about some fun spring break staycation ideas for your family:
-Plan a themed movie night. With a little planning on your part, put together an activity and dinner (with dessert) based on a movie theme. For Cinderella, have a room cleaning contest and then serve their favorite pumpkin treat. etc. You could even let the kids pick the movie ahead of time.
-Check out the local museum or art gallery. Many art galleries even offer kids classes or workshops. Check into registration early.
-Do a project as a family. Let the kids choose from a few family projects like: plant the garden, clean out the garage together, fix the broken playhouse door, paint a room, etc. Working together on a project that benefits everyone will bring your family closer together.
-Build couch forts. Remember doing this as a kid? This is a great rainy day activity that gets kids up and moving. Why not join them? When mom and dad get into these activities, the kids enjoy them so much more.
-Have a family video game party. This may not be most parent’s first choice, but the point is that you’re spending time together doing something that your kids enjoy. Set a time limit and give it your all for that long.
-Visit the local zoo or aquarium. To make it extra special, look up some fun facts to share about a few of the animals before hand.
-Go to the matinee together. Enjoy an afternoon at the theatre with your little ones! Indulge in some popcorn and laugh with them at all the one-liners.
-Have a family game night. Drag out those board games that you hardly use and play one together. Put some finger foods out and make it a real treat!
-Plan a family walk or hike with a picnic lunch. Go to a favorite park spot, or explore a new one. Bring along a blanket, some pb+j’s and trail mix. You’re all set for a fun afternoon enjoying nature together.
-Enjoy a day at the local pool. What’s Spring Break without a little water fun, right? Stay in town and support the local pool or water park.
-Try something new together. Whether it’s baking a cake or riding a horse, let the kids experience something they’ve never tried before.
-Visit a local historic site. I recently heard of a family who lived in France that had never visited the Eiffel Tower. Crazy, right? How many historical sites are within driving distance for your family? Why not pack a lunch and take a day trip to visit one or two of them?
-Take a tour of a local business or factory. Have your kids seen how the local dairy farmers make cheese and ice cream? Many facilities offer public tours. This is a great way to keep their little minds working.
-Check out the community events calendar. Don’t forget to take a look at the local events during your spring break!
-Have an indoor campout/slumber party. If the weather where you are is anything like here, you may be stuck inside more than you’d like. Make the most of it with a slumber party in the family room. Drag out your sleeping bags. Set out all their stuffed wild animals. Turn off all the lights and tell ghost stories by flashlights. They’ll love it!
-Put on an indoor scavenger hunt. Make a simple list of ten items for each child to search for and find hidden in the house. The first one to gather all ten items is the winner!
