#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.Foam Coozy

#4 – Chip Clips

 Wanbi Tape Clothes Pins Mod Podge & foam brush, optional

Chip clip


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

    Such cute ideas! It’s always fun getting handmade things from kids. My Dad still has a t-shirt we made him years (and years) ago. The hot pad and spatula is a great idea – kids of any age could do it.

  3. These ideas are great! We are having a mother’s day blog hop if you want to link this up. 🙂 It would be a perfect post for the hop. Check it out if you want to. 🙂 http://bakingwithmom.com/mothers-day-treat-your-children-can-make/
