MOPS Crafting

We had our first Mothers of Pre-schoolers meeting this week. And, as I’ve mentioned, the theme is Momology: The Art and Science of Mothering. One of the components of this theme involves developing resilience as a mom and one of the activities associated with developing resilience is building a “Resilience Box” filled with things that help us develop our resilience. So…this first meeting, we decorated our Resilience Boxes to reflect our personalities.


I had a lot of fun finding words and images…


cutting and gluing….


And what’s inside?


Oh, look. It’s some of the extra little MOPS business card holders that Amelia made based on my Silver Bella pal, Lynn’s, awesome (as usual) idea. These cards and card holders were the first addition to the Resilience Boxes because participating in MOPS definitely helps us develop resilience as moms!


So…I got in a little Whole Life Crafting this week at MOPS.

      Thanks, Sheree! I had tons of fun finding those little blurbs–and I used many of them out of context of the magazine’s articles, which made it even more fun. 🙂
