Handcrafted end pages featuring kid drawings transform basic journals into keepsakes for Mom.
A journal of any size will work. Measure the book's original endpaper, then cut your little crafter's picture so that it's slightly wider to accommodate the fold. Next, use a paintbrush to apply white glue evenly over the endpaper. Lay artwork over the glued area and press, starting at the center and working out. Wipe off any excess glue; trim the edges with a utility knife if needed. Close the journal and stack heavy books on top. Let dry overnight.

Kids can make fun, floral stamps with a pencil eraser.
Press the eraser into an ink pad, and stamp polka dots onto a Mother's Day card. An adult can also cut the eraser with a utility knife to create different looks. We stamped colored kraft paper and blank card stock, and added stems to the flowers with a green pencil.

Tissue Cherry-Blossom Tree
There's no need to buy Mom spring flowers this year when your crafty young gardener can make ones that last longer.
Gather branches that have fallen outside; let dry, if necessary. Cut out 2-inch squares of pink tissue paper, pinch the paper tightly in the middle to create blooms, and affix them to branches with white glue. Display in a tall container, such as a canning jar, with the lid's center removed.
