Hey Dads! Stop by Dollar Tree and get some $1 mini storage/tote baskets, one for each of your kids to decorate a cute and useful gift for MOM! Even little ones can do this, and they love to weave with their cute little fingers!
The mini storage/tote baskets from Dollar Tree come in lots of great sizes and nice colors. When choosing baskets, bigger isn’t necessarily better. Stay within about 6-8 inches at the longest length so mom has the option to keep it under her sink or tucked onto a shelf in her closet.
Dad should cut about one inch strips from colorful old T-shirts to make the weaving “yarn”. Don’t worry about them being perfect, as T-shirt material rolls up nicely, and doesn’t fray. Kids can weave the colorful strips in around and through however they like. There’s no right or wrong way to do it. Mom will love them no matter how they turn out! And besides, these get tucked away for her to use in her own privacy as storage. So she can cherish them for years!
Mini storage totes are actually quite useful. You can never have too many in various sizes to stay organized. Mom can use one for all her hair supplies, easy to whip out from under the bathroom sink with hair brush, comb, hair spray, etc. all in one place. Or another one to store all things for a manicure. She may want a few to put on a shelf in her closet to hold sox, belts, or scarves.
I found hair clips, hair bands and some fun goodies at Dollar Tree that you may want to get as well. You can even fill the baskets with good quality name brand beauty products for nails, hair and skincare at 70% off or better. Log on to www.TheGroceryGame.com and gather some luxury products to fill those storage totes!
Have a “weaving” party with the kids, and remember to take photos of your busy “weavers” at work! Mom will really love that too!
Happy Mother’s Day!
