Little Hands Make Fond Memories
This gift is sure to become one of Mom's favorite treasures. Take a sheet of construction paper and fold it in half to make a card. Make a handprint by brushing poster paint on the underside of your child's hand, then press your little one's hand (fingers spread apart) onto the paper. On the inside of this card, encourage your youngster to use crayons and draw pictures. Your helper can copy or type a poem, cut out pictures from a magazine, or create a special piece of art to glue on the inside. Finish by labeling the card with your child's name and the date. This project is a lovely one to repeat each year as a Mother's Day tradition. Mom will enjoy seeing her child's growth and will cherish these cards forever.
