Kids love to create handmade gifts and treats for Mother's Day. Even more so, mothers love to receive these darling gifts made with so much love.  Here's a favorite you can create with items from your local craft store.

The darling "Thank You For Helping Me Grow" planter jars are fun. Use a recycled jar and paint it with Folk Art Outdoor acrylic paint. When the paint dries, add a thick coat of Outdoor Mod Podge. This will allow the jar to be outdoors without getting ruined. Fill the jar with dirt and plant seeds. The free printable is on the blog at meandmyinklings.com.
