Quick Mother's Day Project



I teach the 8-11 year olds at church and you better believe we're making Mother's Day cards this week in class. I got this idea off the internet somewhere a long time ago and finally get to use it! You just take a pipe cleaner, hole punch, and fun size M&M's bag and it can be a bow in her hair, on a dress, or whatever you want to draw. I guess it could also be a butterfly. I know this is a little late in coming, plus many of you reading this ARE mothers and shouldn't have to make your own gifts (like stockings and Easter baskets...) but you're in luck! You can do the same thing for Father's Day and make it a bow tie. Some of the kids in my class don't have good father situations, so we're going to make cards like this for the Bishop (Father of the Ward) when that comes around. I bet many of you crafters are rolling your eyes - "This is so basic, Kari!" - but hey, we all have to start somewhere.

Hey, if I'd known about this I might not have blown $60 on beads at the craft store so the kids in my Primary classes could string bracelets for their moms. Of course, given my class, the M'Ms might not have made it onto the project.

...which is why I bought two 8-packs of m&m's for my class of 5! Gotta have extra to snack on. But I understand this might not be a good idea for your particular class. But for Father's Day don't blow $60 on anything - send me $60 and use my idea!

This is so cute! Thanks so much for the idea. I am going to use it with my primary class tomorrow.
Thanks, again!
