We like to receive flowers, congratulations and gifts from close men, friends and colleagues. Incredibly pleased and self-made surprises from your favorite children.

Gifts from children for moms and grandmothers
First of all I would like to leave withoutattention of kids, who by virtue of their age are not able to make gifts for their mothers and grandmothers on their own.

The eyes of a three-year-old child will catch fire with the opportunity to make pleasant the most dear to him people. Therefore, both mom and dad should take the leadership in their hands, offer the kid ideas and help with their implementation. The simplest thing is to draw a drawing or to make an application. For example, draw a vase of flowers on a white sheet of thick paper or just a large bouquet and suggest that the child, with the help of clay, make a drawing in color. A certain imagination can be shown when creating an application. For originality, you should not use ordinary colored paper, but dry flowers, leaves from the herbarium or large beads. The child obviously like to make something unusual for a mother or grandmother and after giving them their attention and hand over the warmth of their hands.

They need to be glued to a folded sheet of cardboard, which will become a postcard. You can also please my mother and grandmother with a symbolic boat with scarlet sails. An interesting option will be a bunch of children's photos that need to be cut in the form of a circle and put in the center of paper daisies pasted onto paper or cardboard. Girls-schoolgirls can also submit ideas on how to congratulate their mother, grandmother, sisters or aunts. Teenagers are often addicted to sewing, knitting or embroidery. A beautiful kitchen set of apron and potholders, a knitted scarf or shawl, an unusual picture embroidered with a cross - all this will surely please relatives and loved ones. You can make an original wall organizer for mother's manicure set or sew a case for grandmother's glasses. Sons and grandchildren can please their dear women with their own baked cake. Of course, without experience this will be a difficult task, but with a certain effort, it is even very feasible. You can also turn an ordinary cutting board into a real work of art. On it you need to draw a pencil with a pencil and then repeat it with a device for burning out. For brightness, it can be painted with gouache and varnished. Such things will appeal not only to moms, but to other women in the family. You can also make an interesting casket in the shape of an apple from plastic bottles of green or brown.

They are pretty standard, their eyes get used to them quickly, and we rarely see the photos themselves. But they can be decorated in the most unusual way, using for this purpose fabric, leather, beads, glass and much more. Interesting can become ideas with holders for photos. Here, for example, pictures related to the rest at sea, which are full in any home archives. They are young parents and you, quite a child. Find large sea stones and attach to them pieces of wire on which you can place the selected photos. It turns out such an original sea corner. Similarly, you can make an installation called "Mom and I" using appropriate images. Original ideas are possible even in such a trivial congratulation as flowers. You can choose not a bouquet, but a beautiful living plant, good, you can find them in abundance in any store of the appropriate subject. The whole point is in the pot, where this flower will live.

Then the mass should be removed from the fire and the remaining components introduced into it. The resulting soap should be poured on any molds (you can use children's sand) and send to the fridge for two to three days before the complete hardening. If you want to try yourself as a master in creating jewelry, then use the recommendations on how to make original bracelets and beads using beads of different sizes and shapes. You will need even thin bands, bands and pins. By the way, all the same beads can be an excellent material for decorating bored glass or ceramic vases (without relief ornamentation).
