Daily Living Made Easier

Pink things to encourage the Sandwich Generation for Mothers Day AND Pink SaturdayWow! Time in the Sandwich Generation just gets faster and faster, doesn’t it. I can’t believe it’s Mother’s Day this weekend – not to mention that school will soon be out for so many of our grandkids. Time to start thinking of fun (and preferably easy) crafts and outdoor games and activities for those of us boomers and seniors who will be babysitting our grandchildren or perhaps visiting long distance grandkids. I love taking and making crafts and projects when I travel. I used to buy the supplies when I got there, but that was always tough on time schedules so now I try to take most, or all, with me. How about you?

In the meantime, if any of you are also going to be babysitting the grandkids THIS weekend, it could be a fun time to help them make a card or gift for their mommy, and/or any senior relatives who live nearby. For that matter, even if it’s received late, I’m sure the long distance grandparents and relatives would be thrilled as well.

Fun pink butterfly greetings for the Sandwich Generation - Happy Mothers DayIt’s shaping up to be a crazy busy weekend for my multigenerational family – what with soccer, the grandkids and my senior mom’s bird and gardening activities, and fielding calls on a long-distance rental I’m supervising for a tenant turn-over. So I’m thinking the easier the better.

Eren Mckay at Embracing Home has a wonderful round-up of free Mother’s Day printables from bookmarks to cupcake toppers to greetings cards that are all quite cute.

Then I discovered some adorable spring tags at my favorite and very cute country clipart creator, Trina Clark at Digi Scrap Kits. I had a little fun and voila, here are some Mother’s Day tags for our grandkids and us that will make delightful bookmarks and decorations. I have a coloring page AND a colored page for each.

Of course, it’s not just the grandkids who might enjoy these. I bet my senior mom will love having a set of her own to make some of her handmade greetings cards for her long distance grandkids. These are definitely fun and easy crafts for all of us from seniors on down to the cute grandkids in our Sandwich Generation family. Perfect for a fun albeit busy Mother’s Day weekend, not to mention future summer projects, don’t you think?
