Last year we painted frames and took black and white photo for the frames.

I had the children draw a portrait of their mom and then asked them to tell me about their mother. I framed the portrait with their story.

You could have them answer some questions about their mom or loved one (if the mom is deceased) and put them in a child decorated card. Some examples are:

What do you like about your _________?
What do you like to do with ____________?
What does ________ look like?
What is the most important thing he/she says?

My favorite mother's day gift was something I found on Dr. Jean's site many years ago. It was a gold sneaker that turned out looking like those bronzed baby shoes. You have each child bring in an old sneaker that they've outgrown or lost
the mate to. They then paint the sneaker all over with a watered down liquid glue solution. Let them dry then add another coat of glue. You'll need at least 2 or 3 coats of glue. The sneakers dry very hard. Then you spray paint them with a glossy gold paint. They turn out absolutely
beautiful! Parents loved them. Dr. Jean had a cute little poem that goes with them.

We use an old sneaker and put a plant in it for a planter.
