Mothers Day Ideas

Today I thought I would revisit some my past gift ideas. These are perfect for Mother's Day! I also thought I would share some mothers day poems that you could use with them.

Check out my handprint bouquet for a quick and memorable gift.
I was also excited yesterday to get an email from Care.com. They shared my bouquet in their post for 27 Mother's Day Gift Ideas Kids Can Make. I am number 9 on the list, in case you want to check it out. ;D
I loved making these, the Newspaper Flower Bouquet. This takes a bit more time, but so worth it when you see the smile on your mommas face.
Handprint embroidery can be so creative and fun. Let the kids pic out the fabric and add their names to personalize it even more.
These beautiful handprint Easter lily's were made by Jamie. I love these! 
This lovely framed pin cushion was made by my mom at Pine Creek Style.  My kids helped and I arranged the pins in a heart for this photo. I wanted to keep it that way. LOL
Decorative Fridge Magnets are fun too. I made these a while back to dress up my own fridge, but they would be great to give as gifts too!
And now for a few cute Mother's day Poems
(credits unknown)

Mother's Day Poem #1

I am small and it is hard to stay clean.
I sometimes leave handprints in places I don't mean.
On windows, walls and on the kitchen floor,
The cookie jar, light switch or the refrigerator door.

I am giving you this handprint,
So when I get older, you can look back
To a time long ago when I was small,
And still see my handprints here on the wall.

Mother's Day Poem #2

Sometimes you get discouraged
Because I am so small,
And always leave my fingerprints
On furniture and walls.
But everyday I am growing,
I'll be grown up someday,
And all these tiny handprints
will simply fade away.
So here is my tiny handprint
Just so you can recall,
Exactly how my fingers looked
When I was very small.

Mother's Day Poem #3

Everyday I am exploring
Touching everything I have found
I leave behind my little marks
And handprints all around

You clean up those handprints
But someday when I am grown
You will wish you just had one handprint
To keep for your very own

I made this handprint for you
So that one day when I am tall
You will remember what my hand looked like
Long ago when I was very small

Hope you all have a wonderful Mother's Day and that you enjoyed what I shared today! ;D
