Homemade kids crafts for Mother's Day?

Anyone have any ideas of stuff my kiddos could do for Mother's Day for their grandmas? Other than just draw them pictures.

ETA: It needs to be something that's easily mailed as all of their grandmas are out of town.

Last year I went to wal-mart and bought these cheap wood picture frames from the crafts section. You paint and decorate them yourself. 5yo made one for BM last year at our house and dad one for fathers day and absolutely loved it!!

We also made cookies for BM and grandma last year. Each one had a meaning he learned to tell them about.... Duckies were because she washed him. Moon because she tucks him in bed. Trucks because she buys him toys. Hearts because she loves him.. etc. He loved that one too!

Our tradition is to pick wild flowers.  We pick crocuses, marsh marigolds and pussy willows.  Of course it all depends what's available at the time.  This year spring started early so the willows already finished blooming and the crocuses are done for the season.

Lmao! We ended up buying wood craft picture frames, paint and decorations. We're going to paint them and then they will all decorate a portion of the frames (well Oliver probably won't...lol).

This is cute too. I love handprint things. I saw footprint butterflies on Pinterest.
