This Sunday, May 10th we celebrate mothers everywhere!
George Washington once said…
“My mother was the most beautiful woman I ever saw. All I am I owe to my mother. I attribute all my success in life to the moral, intellectual and physical education I received from her.”
It’s easy to see that mom’s are pretty special people.
I can imagine that some mom’s out there STILL have all the mother’s day presents they ever received. I bet you occasionally run across one saved away in a box and and ask your mom why she doesn’t just throw it away. To that she replies “NEVER!” Moms treasure the things we do and make that show we love them.
There are so many things from making cards, to a homemade necklace that you can do to say “Hey mom, I like you a lot. …And thanks for not getting mad when I cut my own hair, spilled countless items on the floor, colored in all your books to make them pretty, making you stay home with me when I didn’t feel good, for leaving the night light on, for reading to me even when you were exhausted, for giving me the best advice (that sometimes I should have listened to better), and for loving me (that’s the best one).”
So for all those teachers, dad’s, aunts, cousins, or anyone out there that wants to make a mom they know feel a little more special, check out these awesome ideas that we pinned!
I’ve also categorized a few for you to check out!
FREE Printable Love You Hand Stamp (Easy- great for teachers or to do at home with younger children that is super simple! Just print the image and stamp away! You have the option to frame it or not.)

Mason Jar Flower Photo Holder (Medium- much better to do with older children or definitely do-able if you have more than one adult to help with your class, but this is GREAT! You could use ANY jar you want it doesn’t have to be a mason jar. Then just add a few flowers either real or some silk ones from a craft store to make it even more beautiful)

Mosaic Mom (Harder-in the sense that a little more time is required for prep and clean up. To stay organized my tip is to keep the beads in tupperware containers, or beads will find themselves all over the place. You can use up all those old beads or shiny pieces you have lying around!)

We hope these ideas have helped inspire you to create some great things for Mother’s Day, and to mom’s everywhere thank you for all that you do!
