I received this wonderful card from my middle son last year. He made it at school and surprised me with it over a simple breakfast (toast and jelly) in bed for Mother's Day. I thought it was sweet and delightful. It was too cute not to share and I can credit my son's teacher with the sweet idea.
*This simple card incorporates "coupons" and gift giving in one. The card "creator" makes a bouquet of paper flowers with promises written on the stems. A few examples are:
- I promise to make my bed every morning without complaining.
- This flower is good for one special chore.
- Present this flower for breakfast in bed.
- Redeem me for one night of dishes.
*Next, slip the stems into a slit at the top of the paper vase.
*You can write a special poem or write a fun story on the inside of the card to personalize the gift. My son's teacher used a simple template for the children. Here is what her inside reads:
My Mom is as sweet as ____________________________________________.
My Mom is as beautiful as _______________________________________________.
I love my Mom, because ________________________________________________.
*Spritz with a little perfume and find a special person to deliver your card to.
Happy Mother's Day!
