Kelli,

I remember so well the Mother's Day gifts/projects we did in school. One year we bought perfume-scented necklaces. Pee-yew! One year we made cards using the toothbrush/paint/screen technique. Cool - I should try that now. And one year we made "tea cup men" by turning cups upside down, gluing them to the saucers and gluing felt features on the face (the handle was the nose.)

Kindra said...
