Crafting with the Kids- DIY Picture Frame Gifts!

Yesterday was Mother's Day and before the big day I was trying to figure out what to get for my mother and mother-in-law. They are very special mother's in my own life as well as my son's life. They always love great handmade gifts from the boys so I decided we'd make them something. 

So while browsing the new Micheal's in town I came across some adorable wooden picture frames for only one dollar each! I decided that would be the gift! So I picked up the wooden frames, some acrylic paint, and a container of cool foam letter stickers. For three frames, the paint, paint brushes, and the stickers, it only cost me about $10. 
All I did was laid out some newspaper on the table, squeezed out some paint, and let Noah go to town! He loved painting the frames. He was very careful about getting it just right and making it look very pretty!

After we let the paint dry overnight we picked out the stickers we wanted and just pressed them firmly onto the frame! We decided to say "We Love Mimi". It was a cool way to work on letter recognition too! I dumped a bunch of the stickers out on the counter and had Noah pick out the letter I said I needed. It was a lot of fun! I then put one of their newest photos in the frame and it was finished! 

The frame looked so great, and Mimi was very pleased with it! My sister saw it and said she wanted us to make her one! It's such an easy project but makes such a great, thoughtful gift!
