Mothers Day Stall


Still working on Mothers Day stall things for school and coerced a couple of 11 year old girls to give a hand . These little peg magnets are quick and easy and the kids really do like to give a hand . Firstly use strong glue to stick magnets on one side of wooden pegs . If you can't manage to buy magnets cut up advertising ones that you get from pizza shops etc. Stick on the other side gift wrapping paper or scrapbooking paper . Decorate with buttons or other shapes cut from card .

The little note included in the photo is for my mum . Mum doesn't read my blog in fact I don't think she knows what one is but I love her very much anyway .

these look so good, well done. what a great idea to get the older kids involved. my dad is my biggest blogging fan! he is 72, we see each other all the time but if i miss a few days of blogging he wonders what is up? he knows everything but still likes to read about it.

Great idea for the mother's day stall Clare.

I'm afraid my mum is a bit like yours. She doesn't get the hype about computers and I think is a bit more bermused about why I would want to write about myself on a 'blog'. Then again she doesn't get the whole crafting addiction either ...hhmm... perhaps I am adopted!! LOL

What a great idea. I love them. I would love to make some for my sewing room and my day office too.

I had to giggle when you mentioned your mum and blogging in the same sentence. My mum too! Hmmm, she knows that I like to sew and that I make dolls. But what is a blog???
