The children fill in the blanks for: "My mother is ___ feet tall. My mother weighs ___ lbs. My mother's hair color is ___. And then we took dictation for what my mom likes. They drew their mom's picture. This turned out so cute. Under the flap is the child's name who created it. The moms try to pick their child's drawing out.

Mother's Day Card
The green is the child's hand print and the flowers are die cut. The poem on the pot says:

"I am like a flower that is raised by love by you.
You help me grow up big and strong
Mom, thanks for all you do."


Take 1 and 1/2 paper plates and color them and/or decorate them with stickers. Staple the half plate to the whole plate to make a basket. Add flowers mounted on popsicle sticks. Tissue paper finishes it off!


Materials: Mason jars, towel, shower cap, rubber ducky, bath salts (see recipe below), and card with poem (see poem below).

I put a blue shower cap on the boys and a pink on the girls and took a close up picture of each child with a towel wrapped around their neck and holding the rubber ducky close to their cheek. We made the bath salts and then poured them in each jar, tied a ribbon around the jar and attached the card with the poem. They turned out so adorable and what a special keepsake.

Bath Salt Recipe
Here's a simple recipe that uses epsom salts:
Ingredients: 2 1/2 lb epsom salts, food coloring, perfume
In a large bowl, mix epsom salts with food coloring and perfume. Mix until the color is spread out evenly. Put into smaller jars and let stand 4-6 weeks before using so that the perfume can absorb full into the salts.

The poem says:
Here's a gift for Mother's Day.
I'll try my best in every way.
But if you get upset with me,
Relax and soak! Don't you agree?
