Mother's Day Suggestions
Make a poster sign that reads 'MOM is WOW upside down' Take a picture of
each child holding the sign and then give the pictures to Mom.
Make Mom a special sunshine T-shirt. Draw a circle on the shirt with yellow
fabric paint. Let the child dip a hand in the paint and make a border
around the circle, fingers facing outward to create sun rays. Below the sun
write "You are My Sunshine." The child may paint a face on the sun, too.
Several weeks before Mother's Day, have children start writing down things
about their mother for which they are thankful, such as "Mom made my lunch,"
Mom read me a bedtime story," or "Mom makes the best Macaroni and Cheese."
Place the slips of paper in a decorated jar or shoebox for the children to
give on Mother's Day. It will be a gift that will make Mom cry!
Print this out, include
painted hand prints - a mother's treasure!
When I Was Very Small

Because I am so small
And always leave my fingerprints
On furniture and walls.
But every day I grow a bit
And soon Iíll be so tall
That all those little fingerprints
Will be so hard to recall.
So hereís a special handprint
Just so you can say,
This is how my fingers looked
When I placed them here today.

A terracotta plant pot holds a beautiful, decorated pen (the pen top is
embedded in Plaster of Paris in the plant pot).
For an easier version of this craft (sent in by Ali D.), use green floral
foam instead of the plaster -- cut a slab that fits into the plant pot, then
you can jab holes in the foam for the pen(s) and omit the painting step.

Decorate the pen to look like a flower (or use a green pen). First, wrap the
pen with green florists' tape.
