I don't know about you, but I love getting Mother's Day gifts from my kids that they have made at school. I have a whole collection of them from preschool to the present day. A potholder, a pencil holder, a decorated frame, a bookmark...I'm sure you have them too. I decided to share some thoughtful DIY Mother's Day Gifts that kids can make with dad or with a sitter. These would also be awesome Mother's Day gifts for a grandma or neighbor. When your kids are done crafting, enjoy some of these Mother's Day Brunch Recipes.
