Need a quick Mother’s Day gift for the kiddos to make for mom, grandma, aunt – any wonderful lady in their life! Here are FIVE unique, useful and easy ideas.
#1 – Personalized Hot Pad & Spatula
Hot Pads Sharpie Markers Spatulas with wooden handles
Have the kids color or write, depending on ability, on the hot pad and handle of the spatula
#2 – Magnets
Supplies: I used Staples Inkjet Gloss White Magnet Sheets Directions: Get your favorite selfies, family pictures or fun pics. Load onto your computer and print them out on the magnet sheet.
Cut them out and presto – personalized magnets to hang on the fridge, in the office or anywhere metal Extra pieces trimmed off the photos can be drawn on, or a special message written, for a personalized gift.
#3 – Foam Coozy
These would be terrific as a pencil holder, a flower pot (it has a small hole in the bottom which would allow water to drain) or filled with mom’s favorite candy. Supplies: Foam coozy holders Foam stickers Items to fill coozy
Have kids decorate foam cozy as desired.
#4 – Chip Clips
Wanbi Tape Clothes Pins Mod Podge & foam brush, optional
Have kids (help if young) center the wasabi tape on the paperclip and press down, tucking under on ends. Do this on both sides of the clothes pin. If desired, have child (or help if needed ) cover the wasabi tape covered clothes pin with mod podge which will help it last longer and keep it nice. Also, the bit that is folded over the sides
For the gift attach to mom’s favorite chip or treat
