This one is fun for kids and adults alike. Get out your camera and take some candid shots of your kids goofing off. I have one where four of my grandsons got into a mud fight in the back yard. They were just covered in mud from the heads to the feet. It was running off them in rivers. This is the photo I am going to help them make into a card for their mom's this Mother's day. Go to your local Walgreens and have a copy made of the picture.



  1. Fold the paper in half like you would for a card. Cut a hole in the front. It does not have to be square get creative. I plan on making ours with a puddle shape for the opening. Just make it so that when you are done with the hole, your picture can be completely seen.
  2. Now let the kids decorate them with flowers and hearts or anything their little hearts desire. The inside can be lettered with "World's Greatest Mom", "I Love You", or be a little sneaky and use a poem off the internet.

Remember to have the kids sign it.

Hope this gives you a great idea for your mom.

This card and tea bag will bring a smile to any mother's face.

Approximate Time: Less than 30 minutes



Draw a simple teapot on construction paper and cut out. Cut out flower designs from craft foam. Glue these to the front of a folded piece of construction paper. Write the following saying on the front of the card, or use your computer to type and print it out:
"Here's a gift for Mother's Day, I'll try my best in every way. But when you get upset with me, relax and have a cup of tea."

Write a personal message inside the card and tape a tea bag inside.
