Mother’s Day Events in Jersey City and Hoboken

Mother’s Day Events in Jersey City and Hoboken

In preparation for Mother’s Day Celebration, we created a list of events and activities that moms can enjoy on their own or with the whole family. Get some inspiration from these events to get fit and even bring out your inner Picasso.

For most moms, Mother’s Day can be just another hectic day spent getting the kids ready. Possibly to spend it in the park, or by taking the kids to a fun activity. Regardless of how the day goes, mom surely had something prepared, which is why we are grateful for moms since we owe them our lives (literally).

Aside from taking advantage of Mother’s Day Brunch Specials at your local restaurants, you can also gift yourself with great experiences on this special day because you deserve it! From mommy and me activities to races, and even for first-time moms, we made sure to include a little something for everyone.

Get planning because May 12th will be here before you know it!

You want a safe and positive environment for your little one to explore and grow. With the cold weather, going to the park or the playground can be a little challenging. There are a ton of playspaces in the area to choose from, so it’s hard to commit- that’s why we invite you to take advantage of this special opportunity!

Ski Friend Craft for Kids

Ski Friend DIY Craft for KidsBy now the kids are going stir crazy inside with all this cold weather and snow, so I wanted to offer a ski themed craft that is both fun to make and can double as a toy for creative play. This cute ski friend can be made by all ages – just check out my special tips below!

Materials:
– Pipe cleaners
– Popsicle sticks (small size)
– Toothpicks or wire
– Pom poms
– Wooden bead (for the head)
– Paint / or permanent markers
– Scrap of yarn or string
– Hot glue, craft glue or double sided tape (see below)
– Scissors
Ski Friend DIY Craft for Kids
1) Cut a pipe cleaner in half to make the body for your skier. I chose a few different colors so it looks like pants and a shirt.

2) Fold one pipe cleaner half like an upside down V to make the legs. Fold the other pipe cleaner half around it to form arms, as the photo shows.

3) Paint a wooden bead for the face. You could also use a thin tipped permanent marker for eyes, a nose and a mouth.
4) Using hot glue (adult supervision only) or craft glue (such as Aleene’s Tacky Glue), attach the head to the body, and the feet to two Popsicle sticks. Attach pom poms to the head for a hat.

5) Fold each pipe cleaner hand around a toothpick to create ski poles.

6) Tie a little yarn or string around the skier for a scarf.

Ski Friend DIY Craft for KidsVARIATIONS

This craft really works the best with hot glue, because if done right – it can be played with over and over again! The kids will have a great time bending the knees, etc. like a real skier. If you do use hot glue, make sure it heats completely before applying (usually 5 minutes after plugging the glue gun in).
If you do not wish to use hot glue, strong double sided tape could be used to adhere the feet to the Popsicle sticks.
Don’t have a wooden bead at home? Simply use a sticker for the face (such as a round colored dot from the dollar store).
As long as you have pipe cleaners and Popsicle sticks at home – you can get creative with this fun, winter craft!
