Gifts the Kids Can Make
Cut a 8''x11'' piece of lace. Have each child lay the
lace right side down on a flat surface and place a handful of potpourri
in the center. Bring the four corners up to the top and gather the lace
around the top. Secure the sachet with a rubberband. Cut and tie a piece
of colored ribbon and attach the following poem:
This pretty bag of potpourri
Was made for you by little me.
In it there are leaves and flowers
That will smell sweet for many hours.
I helped cut the ribbon and lace,
And tied a bow in a special place.
So keep it somewhere it can stay
To remind you of this Mother's Day!
Tuna Can Pin Cushions...
Use clean tuna or cat food cans - throw out the lid.
Lemon juice will help to get the odor out when washing. Use a small
amount of quilt batting or cotton and fill the can so that the cotton
forms a mound above the rim of the can. Then using scraps of fabric cut a
circle of fabric about 1" larger in diameter that the rim of the can.
Glue the Fabric to the INSIDE of the rim at the very top tightly enough
to form a cushion with the cotton underneath. Lastly, decorate the
outside of the can with fabric, ribbons, lace or just about anything you
can think of. You can also paint the outside of the can and glue on
decorative buttons or beads, but make this your first step and let paint
dry before making the cushion.
A Special Gift...
Wrap a small jewelry box any one will do really. If your
using it for Mothers Day add floral a floral print wrap, if the gift is
for Christmas wrap in a red or green wrapping paper. Use the following
poem and attach it to the box by hole punching the top left corner and
tying it on with ribbon.
This is a very special gift,
That you can never see.
The reason it's so special,
It's just for you from me.
Whenever you are lonely,
Or ever feeling blue,
You only have to hold this gift
And know I think of you.
You never can unwrap it.
Please leave the ribbon tied.
Just hold the box close to your heart,
It's filled with LOVE inside.
Mother's Day Kisses...
You will need 2 wrapped candy kisses, 1 plastic spoon, a
4 x 4 piece of netting, and ribbon. Place the two kisses back to back in
the bowl of the spoon. Cover with the netting and tie with small ribbon.
To the ribbon's bow attach the following poem:
"Happy Mother's Day!
A spoonful of love
And a couple of wishes,
That you enjoy your
Mother's Day kisses!"
Keepsake Handprint Poem
Just print this sheet out, paint your child's hand
with washable paint. Have him or her press their hand down on the paper
firmly. Dry. Great for grandparents also.
These can be really cute in the garden. Makes a great and quirky planter
in your garden or on the back porch steps as a collection.
Book of Kisses
The kids can make their own booklets or download the "kiss" graphic.
