Last Minute Mother's Day Gift

So... if you are like me, you are completely bogged down with getting everything done for the end of the year. With only 2 weeks left of school, it seems impossible to get everything done in the limited amount of time we have. I decided to do a quick craft with the kids for Mother's Day, a refrigerator magnet. I bought some craft foam sheets from the dollar store and cut out small flowers about 3 inches across. Then I had the kids spread some glitter glue on it with a paintbrush, layer 2 of the flowers together and put a foam circle in the middle.

Then we glued a magnet to the back.

It is quick and simple for kids to make, but cute. I also found a short poem online:

My Mother, my friend so dear
throughout my life you're always near.
A tender smile to guide my way
You're the sunshine to light my day.

I printed the poem out on a card for the kids to decorate. You can use flower stickers or other bright colorful stickers to spruce it up a little.
