Simple Treasures 

With Mother's Day and Father's Day fast approaching, we've provided a few gift ideas that are easy and fun for children to make.

Huggable Hands

Trace your child's hands on construction paper and then cut the handprints out. After measuring each child's arms, attach a long piece of yarn to each cutout hand. Put the two hands and yarn into an envelope with a note that says "Mom or Dad, I love you THIS much!"

Flower Magnets

Cut flower shapes from fun foam, and glue them at the top of a clothespin. Cut stem and leaves from fun foam and glue beneath the flower. Put magnetic tape on the back of clothespin.

Book of Kisses

Make booklets by cutting paper into 4-inch squares and stapling 10 sheets together in one booklet for each child. Write "Book of Kisses" on the top page and invite the children to decorate the cover of the booklet. Color the children's lips with lipstick and have them kiss each page of the book. Parents can redeem each page for a real kiss.
