Mothers day gift made with flowers and pot. Take the foam and push into pot. I used a tin pot but you can use any kind you want. Glue item of your choosing on to one end of the dowel then push into foam any where you want.

This started out as a door hanger he could make for his mom. Grandma's Idea: The door hanger would look cute with all these little hand and foot prints all over it. Aiden's Idea: All it really needs is two hands and two feet (after all, isn't that what we have?)

As a preschool Sunday School teacher, I had the children plant flowers to be good size by Mother's Day. To decorate our plastic margarine/butter/sour cream containers, I wanted to make them look like the floral shop plants.

For my mother last year I took a plain board (9x11 inches) and sanded it smooth. Then I let my children pick 3 different colored craft paints that matched. I primed the board and gave it a base coat of one of their color picks.

I have many rolls of various colored crepe paper streamers. I would like to have my Sunday School class (grades 1-4) make something for Mother's day out of them. Perhaps someone has instructions on how to make flowers out of them? Any other ideas?
