These would be fun for a (very) last minute Mother’s Day gift. Either the smallest folks could make them or someone could make a deliberately young set of magnets. Again, include it with the latest picture of you or by you and voila, Mother’s Day gift.
Completely separate from the idea of a Mother’s Day gift I like the way the family used polymer clay to help them make their own versions of interesting art that they’d seen. I often find myself doing this with my classes – helping the students make pieces to help them understand or admire what’s showing in the art gallery down the hall from the class.
