Often times, the gifts that moms treasure most are those made with love by two little hands. Homemade presents are irreplaceable keepsakes that Mom can cherish for years to come. What mom wouldn't LOVE a bouquet of handprint flowers or a personalized walking stone for the garden ? If you're searching for adorable crafts that young children can make for Mother's Day presents, here are a few that are definitely worth a look-see!
Young children have quite the way with words. Their adorable, innocent phrasings often tickle the funny bone or just plain melt your heart. Kids are honest- they say what they mean, and they mean what they say!
Here's a simple, printable Mother's Day Questionnaire that captures children's genuine thoughts and feelings about the special women in their lives. It's bound to make Mommy and Grandma smile (or laugh hysterically), and it will be a treasured gift for years to come!

By now it's no secret- I'm a mom with a passion to create. With a teaching background and a love for children, it's natural (as well as completely fulfilling) for me to incorporate the things that I enjoy into making lasting memories and learning experiences for my daughter. It's really a win-win situation for both of us. Sometimes my ideas are successful and things go according to plan. Many, many other times, my so-thought "full-proof" plan ends up backfiring- all over myself, the floor, or in my daughter's hair (oops)! We all make mistakes, but it's how we choose to react to and handle accidents and mishaps that's important. In the scheme of things, your effort and the quality time spent with your child are what really matter. I recently had to remind myself to look at the brighter side of a situation. Allow me to share the story of a snack idea that didn't quite turn out the way I intended.
