I was thinking about this post and came up with an idea that i'd actually like to start: Having our son make a piece of art for us. Since he's only 7.5months old, i think i'm going to get him to slap paint onto a ceramic plate or bowl or cup with his hands on father's day and get the tradition started then. Here in toronto they have places like <a href="http://www.artisticway.ca/ceramics.htm" target="_blank">this</a> that allow you to make these things.<br><br>
ETA: Come to think of it, i think a finger-painted mug from my LO would help me cope better at work with him being at daycare.
I've heard of someone taking a stepping stone and painting the baby's foot on it - adding a new one each year so eventually you'd have a whole path with growing feet.<br><br>
Baking or making your favorite food - but mom doesn't have to clean up.<br><br>
Family picnic in the yard or at a park - frisbee, tag, reading...
I love the stepping stone idea!<br><br>
I woke up this morning to my toddler feeding me a giant delicious homemade cookie in bed. Mmmm!! Cookies for breakfast! Last year it was brownies. I remember when I was a kid, it was always breakfast in bed for our mama on mothers day. I think that kids baking cookies or breakfast for their mama is a great way to get them involved in caring for others, especially their mamas!
