This inspirational poem for mom is the perfect way to say thanks for the little things she does. It was my little way of reminding myself that my mom-work is important and I don’t know why it took me so long to share it with you.
These are the socks that mom folds.
These are the feet that wear the socks that mom folds.
This is the path that’s walked by the feet that wear the socks that mom folds.
This is the success at the end of the path that’s walked by the feet that wear the socks that mom folds.
And while it’s not just a Mother’s Day sentiment, this is definitely a great time to share it with mom. We’ve pulled together a number of ways to use this poem to show mom some love. I can guarantee you won’t find these ideas anywhere else! Check them out below.
“The Socks That Mom Folds” Mother’s Day Gift Ideas
- Photo Transfer onto a Wood Box. This was perfect for our DIY succulent planter project. I used Mod Podge Photo Transfer Medium for this and found the instructions on the Mod Podge website.
- Printable Mother’s Day coloring page for the kids. Our coloring contest is over, but you can still download the free coloring pages. These are great for kids to color and give as is or color and cut to create their own masterpieces.
- Greeting card from our Zazzle store. I finally opened a Zazzle store! Grab the Mother’s Day card and check out a few other goodies while you’re there.
- Framed photos. The one above is 5×7 sits on my desk, but I’m planning to print out a set of square prints for the laundry room. I created an 8×10 also, but I haven’t decided where I’ll put it.
- Decoupage or photo transfer onto just about anything. Try a pillow, apron, keepsake journal or anything else you can think of. Don’t wanna do the work? Find some of those products in my Zazzle store as well.
And, while you can take your own pictures and use the poem (for non-commercial use!), I’ve made it a bit easier by adding the photos to my digital store. Click to purchase and download the images in a variety of formats using the links below!
