Mother’s Day is all about an expression of love and gratitude, You can show Mom how much you appreciate her with a thoughtful and inexpensive gift that she will treasure.

If your Mom or grandmother is getting up in years, it’s time to capture precious memories to preserve for future generations. Last year, we came up with this idea for all of the grandchildren to do:

  • We filmed a “talk show” and interviewed family members as guests. The grandchildren spoke about grandma and what makes her so special. The older kids interviewed her and asked her to tell about her childhood. We made copies for everyone and it will be a treasured keepsake.

Here are some easy DIY Mother’s Day gifts you and the kids can make:

  • Buy a white tablecloth and fabric markers and write favorite quotes, memories and drawings for mom to enjoy on her table every day.
