Mother’s Day is the one day a year when Mom has full permission to sit back, relax, and enjoy being the one doted upon. So, come Mother’s Day, what should kids do to give Mom the full “thanks” she deserves?  The editors of Disney FamilyFun magazine have generously contributed a number of easy Mom-worthy crafts and recipes to help them do just that.  A few of the Mother’s Day gift may require another adult’s help, but all offer an easy personalized way for kids to celebrate Mom to the fullest on her special day.

    These are really cool items that would be great for other occasions as well.

    I had a great Mother’s Day. Several of the kids and grandkids came over, and my daughters and I thoroughly enjoyed saying, stuff to the husbands and grandchildren: “Don’t you think you should load the dishwasher. It’s Mother’s Day! How about going outside and checking on your sister. It’s Mother’s Day!”

    Hi. I love your blog!!! I definitely agree with your post here. Mother’s day comes only once a year, so we should celebrate it with the whole family. The Mother’s day gifts you mentioned are very artsy and creative. I love it.

    I think that your site is great. It takes my mind back to when I was a child and I created gifts for my mom out of anything I could find that would be special. I remember, one special day, I made my mother an outfit out of curtians (skirt and blouse).
