Mother’s Day Craft

So this year I have decided to try to craft more for holidays than to purchase cards. We usually do all holidays pretty low key and stick to a budget. When I was getting some laundry detergent at Target the other day I went to the card section to check out Mother’s Day cards. I can’t believe how much some cards can cost! I saw a cute one that was from multiple grand kids to a grandmother I was thinking about purchasing it until I checked the price. The card was almost $5. So then I started to calculate things: a card for my mom, a card for my mother-in-law, one for my grandmother, one for my grandmother-in-law, oh shoot there are not any that are from multiple great grand children so that means one from each of them. Um, I can’t spend over $20 on cards so I decided the kids will make their own cards then. While going through craft supplies I already had at home I came up with the idea of the kids making a little craft. So here is the little craft we made, the only item that was purchased was the photo prints from Target which was under $2

Some of the craft supplies we already had, most of which is from the Dollar Tree

Our craft: flower in a flower pot- the petals were the kids hands and they wrote a message on the back.
