Plate Wall Hanging

Filed Under Kids, Paint, Child Activities, Mother's Day | Leave a Comment

This is a really neat idea for a Mother’s Day gift for grandma’s from a small child.  It’s something they will definitely cherish! Handprint on Plate

Materials Needed:

Paper Plate, Paint, Lace and/or Ribbon, Glue


Paint the child’s hand then press it onto the paper plate.  Once the paint dries, glue the lace around the edge of the plate, then add lace or ribbon to the top to hang it.  Don’t forget to write the child’s name, age and date on the plate!

For a little variety, use colored paper plates with a contrasting color.

Flowers for Mom…

We always get my mother and mother in law flowers for Mother’s Day. It’s just one of those traditions that goes on and on… This year will be no different.

Hugs and Kisses BouquetI wanted something unique this year that would say We Love You in a special way, and I’ve found it! I went to the ProFlowers website and was amazed at all the many choices! I can never remember what meanings there are behind all the different flower choices, so I used their Florapedia guide and went to the Flower Meanings link to learn which flowers are appropriate for Moms. I’ve always loved the Iris and found out they represent faith, hope, and wisdom. And of course, I want a flower that expresses our love and appreciation as well, which is the rose, so I’m planning to give both mothers the Hugs and Kisses bouquet.

We’ll still give both Moms a handmade card, and each of the girls always end up making both Grandma’s something, but I just know they will love their flowers!

Here’s another great idea for Mother’s Day! I love surfing all the great craft blogs!!! I found this one atLove Letters blog. This is something that Mom could display all year long and Mom’s always love a handmade, heartmade gift.

I know my mom would love it if I put a picture of her and my girls on it! My oldest daughter Becca is always taking picture of her and “grammie”, so I could get her to take a picture of “grammie” with both the girls, then I could make this great gift for her!  It would be so easy to paint the letters then decorate them with stickers and markers. has all the supplies you need and she includes all the instructions on how to make it right on her blog. Give Mom something from the heart this year!

Mother’s Day CardI found a site that gives detailed instructions on making this beautiful Mother’s Day card! Mother’s Day is less than 2 weeks away, so it’s time to get busy making your cards!

I plan to make one of these for my mother (of course!), my Mother in Law, and a special woman from our church who has always been like a mother to me. So I have 3 to make.

Fabulous Food/Crafts gives step by step directions with pictures showing how to make this card, plus many others. If you plan to make any cards for Mother’s Day this year, you have to check out their site.
