The FIRST one is a tin can craft I came up with. At the bottom of the can I placed a laminated piece of scrapbook paper that has mother written in different languages. The kids will decorate the top with gems and will write the Top 5 Reasons they LOVE their mom. They'll write them on strips of paper. I think I'm going to have them coil each one around their pencil to make it fit in the tin. I'll be taking a black and white photo of each student to put on the top of the lid. I thought it might even be cute if they're making a heart with their hands. A pic will be posted once they're made!!

The THIRD craft I've done in the past are the hand cutout flowers. Simple but cute.
I also saw a World's Best Mom Newspaper at Martha Stewart that had a template for kids to fill in.
I'll have the kids decorate a lunch bag and place their items in the bag to take home.
Let me know what crafts you do. I just might want to try them too!!
