Box Necklace - You can collect small boxes that jewelry comes in or use matchboxes for this project. Spray paint the boxes and then let the children decorate them with stickers, glitter pens, etc. Glue a small picture of the child inside the box. Punch a hole and attach a ribbon so it can be worn around the neck. Teach children the song and let them present their necklaces at a Motherís Day Tea. You could also just send the boxes home with the words to the song inside a card.

Picture Frame - Cut picture frames out of heavy cardboard.  Let children glue on colorful buttons.  Tape a picture of the child on the back and add magnetic tape so it can be hung on the refrigerator.  Make a card that says, “I’m cute as a button!”
