The Cutest, Simplest, Mother's Day Craft

I hope the end of the school year is not kicking your hiney. Lort! This time of the year is so so hectic and busy.
For many years I have had a tendency to immerse myself in my teaching... and truly not take care of my self. Please don't do that! Learn from my mistakes! Try to find a happy medium.

A couple of weeks ago I was thinking hard about what to make with my second graders for Mother's Day without breaking the bank.
How's this for a great idea??  This Mother's Day craft is PERFECT for elementary student and will not break the bank!


  • Tiles from Lowe's. I believe that each tile was 77 cents.
  • Bags of  peanut M&M's. $1.19 ea.
  • One small bottle of Modge Podge.
  • A painter's brush from Lowes.
  • Sharpie markers.
  • Cute crafting/sorting buttons
  • Twine
It took me (and my sweet DBo) a total of three days to complete the final product. Not full days though. Lol! I truly can make better use of my instructional time. It was more like an hour on each of the three days. 
Easy peasy lemon squeezy!
Until next time!!
