My Mommy and Me
Construction paper, stapler, markers or crayons
Here's an idea for a cute Mother's Day gift -- or Father's Day gift. Staple several pieces of construction paper together to make a book. Ask your child to draw a picture of herself with her mom (or dad) on the cover. On each of the other pages, write a fill in the blank sentence for your child to respond to. Ideas would be "My Mommy and I like to _________; My Mommy and I read ___________; My Mommy and I go to _________; and My Mommy and I eat __________. Be sure to leave room for your child to draw a picture on each page to accompany the sentence. This is a true keepsake and will be fun to look at together for years to come.
