Mother’s day is here and with that comes hallmark cards, bouquets of roses, and breakfast in bed. But finding a last-minute gift for mom this weekend might be a challenge, so opt out on going to your local department store and create a hand-made gift. Make it more special and personal by having the kids help out. We did some digging on Pinterest and found eight easy, cute, memorable and creative DIY project the kids can do or help create with dad or childcare provider.
