Then green pipe cleaner and made flowers out of colored tissue paper and glued on to pipe cleaner to fill the pot. So, the moms have very pretty flower pens that are functional and homemade by their kids!

For little kids you can use candy instead if you don't want them "eating" the rocks.
Then we make cards for them, I literally write down anything they say...some cute ones are "I wuv you Mommy cuz you buy me Mc Donald's "

This is an expensive craft but Mothers Day is so important to me!
My Son brought home flower pens from his school. The teachers all do their own crafts of course but that was 1 of my favorites. They even attached a little poem to it. I wish I had remembered that. I keep the flower/pen in my bedroom so it lasts longer. We have done the tissue paper flowers in the past also but I never thought to put them in anything. Great idea!
