Gather some pebbles (or rocks), paintbrushes, paints and you’re all set! Both you and your child can paint Mom and your family members her favourite things on these pebbles and rocks. Use them as decorative ornaments around the house on Mother’s Day – place them where Mom will discover them easily! You can also add on little messages of well wishes and appreciation under the pebbles!

 

2. “I am Grateful” Card & Video

through the eyes of a child - a photographic journey of discovery

Have your child interview each family member, asking them 2-4 questions about why they love Mom and why they are grateful having mom around. Write down the answers in an “I am Grateful for You” card. Play the video on the television to surprise Mom while presenting her with the card!

Create a 3D house because “Home is where Mom is”! Get crafty with this upcycling project. You’ll need used cardboard boxes, colored paper, markers, craft glue, decorative materials like felt cloth of different colours, multicoloured pompom balls, glitter glue and ribbons. After the structure is created, simply decorate away by sticking on pieces of felt cloth, pom-poms around the top and sides! Add glitter glue for that extra sparkle. Don’t forget a note of appreciation to go along with your finished piece!
