My overall goal for this Intentional Mama series is to give you super simple ways to interact with your kiddos. So, while the rest of the social media world may make you feel like a terrible mama on silly holidays like St.Patrick’s Day because you failed to have a leprechaun spotting this morning or a pot of gold waiting at the breakfast table, remember that what makes you a great mama is the way you minister to your children’s heart. This series is not intended to produce more mom guilt but rather to give busy mamas an opportunity to intentionally serve their children in super simple ways.

Todays post is really specific for today, St. Patrick’s Day but feel free to use these super cute ideas throughout the entire week!
