Everyone knows that everyone's favorite Mother's day gifts are macaroni necklaces and other "hand crafted" treasures.

The secret is to pour more love than paint and glue into each project!

Moms seem to be able to see all the love seeping through the edges of the paper even when the preschoolers present their creations. The reason is that a Mother's Day gift is just a symbol that says, "You're a great mom and we love you!"

The more kids put into the gift, the louder it shouts how wonderful mom is ... and a mom can hear & see all the loving things you were thinking as you worked to create your gift just for her.

Here's a fun project that kids can make in a jiffy. Be sure to ask an adult if you need help with cutting out the different shapes:
