There is something so special about Instagram. We love how it allows us to showcase our world through images as we capture these precious moments of time. Right now I think we can all use some happy moments. I love ALL the moms I follow on social media and I hope you too get inspired by these moms on Instagram.
Create an Art Gallery
My friend Nancy Deane got the great idea to start and art gallery at home with all her kids art work. I love this idea. Why not add a "opening night" and a throw a party with the family. Momtrends Tip: Use painters tape to add the artwork so you don't wreck your paint.

This Idea Rocks
If you are running short on craft ideas, try this one. Create a rock garden of kindness and positive energy. It's not just about the crafting.

I love how Jennifer's girls created this work of art in the driveway. While we can't get together with our neighbors we can still be neighborly. This is the way to bring a community together.

Throw and Online Dinner Party
Are you starving for socialization? I get it. I love the idea of a Quarantine Dinner Party. I loved this one thrown in the UK. no one is going anywhere. The instructions were to "make a little effort." Dress up, set the table, light some candles, listen to some nice music and mix a cocktail.
