FIVE STEPS TO CREATING A MOTHER'S DAY VISION BOARD!
 
 
1) Gather together some pictures of you and your mom
together throughout the years either real photographs from old albums that are falling apart
or scan some photos that you may have framed already.

2) Make sure you have the following on hand -- a) a posterboard -- if you don't have one you can use a bulletin board or a corkboard
or the inside lid of a box that may have held the robe you game mom for Mother's day!
The inside lid of a nice box --
becomes almost like a Shadow Box for the Vision Board creation.
You can also use an old shadow box you may have on hand.

Use the box that you gave mom her robe in to create a Mother's Day Vision Board to honor all the moms in your family -- aunt, cousins, mom, grandma and even great-grandma...www.visionboard.info

3) You can do this with mom or grandma and your kids too. Sit down with some colored markers or crayons and do it together.
 
Brainstorm some of the fun times you've had together with mom --here are some ideas a) going out to dinner on mother's day -- if you're going out today be sure to take a picture of mom with your family or you! Mom out gardening, mom doing some of her favorite things -- playng the piano, holding you as a baby or even finishing running her first marathon.
Tissuepaper
 
 
4) Paste the pictures on some colorful paper you line the inside of the box with -- maybe the colored tissue paper (pink or green or yellow that you wrapped that robe with. You can use tape or glue to hold the paper in place.
 
If you want double up the adhesive tape so that it sticks without seeing the bits of tape. OR if you don't have tape make some glue. OR if you don't have either mix a tiny bit of flour and water together and it will form some glue for you just be careful to use just a dot of it so that it doesn't show through. BUT If it does -- don't worry you can cover that with a sticker or a little design from your kids or you. Or another picture.

You can use any box -- see the wine box at the left it would make a nice Mother's Day Shadow box once the wine is consumed at dinner or put on a shelf or wine cellar.
 
See the HGTV box -- that is symbolic -- you can cut out pictures and put in flowers from the day or ribbons or whatever. And whatif you don't have any pix of mom -- well, consider doing a real nature-themed Mother's Day Vision Board with pictures of wild animals and their children like these Polar Bears and elephants. So much fun!
 
 
5) Pick a theme for your Mother's Day Vision Board: here are some possibilities: a) gratitude-- what are you thanking your mom for a) her guidance b) her support c) her understanding or d) just being there when no one else was.
 
 
a) But what if you and your mom don't get along perfectly --
don't worry most moms and daughters or sons aren't like the LEAVE IT TO BEAVER TV families of the 20th century.
 
 
b) If you feel more comfortable just honor your mom's heritage and her life -- include pictures of her mother and grandmother. a copy of a map of the country where her family is from such as Mexico or France or Hungary. And include pictures of your mom throughout the years -- a picture (or copy of one when she was a kid) or a copy of a wedding picutre or a copy of a picture of her holding her first grandchild etc.
 
 
PERFECT FOR NURSING HOME OR ASSISTED LIVING:
 
This kind of remembrance Vision Board is ideal for moms who are in the hospital or a rest home or in assisted living where her roommates and visitors and nurses and attendants can see mom in her prime.
