Let'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.
