Favorite Mother’s Day Gifts
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.
Flowers, candy, store-bought cards, and brunch are all delightful Mother’s Day gifts… but they come from my husband and usually have little to do with my children.
Homemade Gifts for Mother’s Day
I appreciate the effort my husband puts into the holiday, but I love a handmade gift the most — the paint-smeared hand prints, the carefully lettered cards, and the pottery creations that my kids have made with their own two hands — they are mom gold!
It’s the thought and effort that I love more than the actual gift!
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.

Craft Tip: I print my fortune tellers on 28lb copy paper or matte photo paper – they are thicker than standard copy paper and print with extra bright colors. This makes a sturdy paper cootie catcher that can stand up to little hands!

Loving Acts for Mom
What is a simple activity for Mother’s Day? Make her breakfast in bed and add a homemade card or fortune teller to the tray. (Be sure to clean up the kitchen and dishes!)
What do kids do on Mother’s Day? Kids can do lots of things to celebrate Mother’s Day. They can complete simple chores, tell Mom three reasons she is special, or just give her a big hug and tell her Happy Mother’s Day.
The fortune teller is full of great ideas! Let the kids use the fortune teller to choose simple activities to complete while mom enjoys an extra cup of coffee and some pampering!
Kids will love completing the jobs and mom will love all the extra attention.

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!
