Photo by Spoonful of SugarLet's face it, chances are good you'll get either a candle or a kid craft for Mother's Day this year.
So why not put the two together?
The Spoonful of Sugar ladies, a mother/daughter team from Perth, Australia, convinced me that all we'll need for granny's gift this year is a plain candle and some paper and glitter.
You'll need a candle -- plain white and jar-less works, and relatively tall and squat is easier for your kids' fingers to work with.
Set out paper, stickers, and glue, and let them get to work.
They make a great centerpiece, but a word to the wise -- remove the pretty covering before you burn the candles, lest you start a fire. Save the candle sleeves to put on other candles or wrap it around your flower vase.
Do you count on Mother's Day to refill your candle assortment?
