This Mother’s Day idea is a favorite of my readers so I had to share it again!
Have your children decorate hot pads for mom to use in the kitchen! They will think of your children every time they cook. Use fabric paint or markers and let your children decorate a light-colored hot pad. Be sure to label it with their name and date.
For our grandmas a couple of years ago, I did a handprint with paint on one side and let my son (then 2) color the other side with markers–all scribbles. They turned out adorable and the grandmas love them! (see above)
We’ve also done this version, which I just think is the cutest!! They’re tulips made with their hands (just paint the 4 fingers, not the thumb; and the top part of the palm). The kids drew on the backs, as well.
