For Mother's Day, your child wants to make something beautiful for you or for grandma. This project contains steps your child can do independently – for example, let your child go through some of your family photos to select a picture that holds special meaning for him or her. When the project's done, you'll have an endearing reminder… not only from the picture the frame holds, but of your time spent together making this special gift.
