Favorite Mother’s Day Gifts
Flowers, candy, store bought cards, and brunch… while these are all delightful Mother’s Day gifts they generally come from my husband and have little, if anything, to do with my actual children.
I appreciate the effort my husband puts into the holiday but the Mother’s Day gifts I love the most are the paint smeared hand prints, the careful lettered cards, and the pottery creations that my kids have made me with their own two hands.
It’s the thought and effort that I love more than the actual gift!
Mother’s Day is meant to be a celebration honoring motherhood and all that moms do, however the mass commercialization of the holiday sometimes turns it into just another occasion for buying presents.
I’d rather spend time with my kiddos and enjoy a bit of pampering from my family than receive an expensive bouquet or a box of chocolates.

Love this printable! Excited to use it with my class. 🙂
I’m hoping to have the kids color their cootie catchers. Can you color on the matte photo paper? Or, would you recommend copy paper or cardstock for the coloring version?
I’d use copy paper or lightweight card stock for the best coloring! Hope they enjoy!
Is it possible to get an editable version for the Australian spelling of ‘mum’. This is such a lovely printable!
