Christy Garrett Craft Idea for Mother's Day says
We painted some cute homemade Mother’s day cards this week. My favorite is the foot print butterfly. It was easy to make and my youngest son enjoyed painting. I always put an old towel or newspaper down before I let them paint at the kitchen table. Not only is painting fun and relaxing, it actually helps kids develop creativity and fine motor skills. Thank you for sharing all of these ideas. I hope you have a Happy Mother’s Day.
