Default Mother's Day?

Looking for some great ideas for something the kids can make for Mom. Something for 2-4 year olds that will make the moms go Awwww.

I saw this idea on pinterest and tried it this year. The kids draw/color or draw on tissue paper so most ages were able to do it. I'm doing something else with the 5 month old though.

These are the ones we made- they turned out much better than I expected!

I love the candles! We are doing a mixture of different flowers and a homemade vase!

We are doing an assortment of flowers and a homemade vase.

Hopefully these links work. Tried once and failed.

The candles are so cute!
I try to do something with hand/footprints every year. This year we're doing them on potholders.

I LOVED the ideas with the candles so much that I got the DCK to colour their tissue paper today and I melted them on this evening. They turned out so cute! Inexpensive candles from Ikea, and we were set!

Thanks for the idea Kim!

We made flowers and vases, too!

We made a vase of sticks glued to a plastic glass. We made the tp flowers that were in family fun. The kids did most all of the work on these. Then I added a couple of silk flowers and a butterfly and a bird and a ribbon(kids put them in, all but youngest). They look sooooo cute!
