Mother's Day Crafts: Coupon Books from the Kids

Ah, coupon books! Moms everywhere will find enjoyment out of these sweet gifts from the kids - even if the chores don't all get done as promised!


We remember giving our own moms similar coupon book gifts when we were younger.

We filled our coupons with the promises of hugs, kisses and a free pass for mom to cuddle with our favorite stuffed puppy when she was sad when we first made this crafty gift in kindergarten. Years later, making the very same gift in our 5th grade class, coupons turned to the chores we were supposed to do anyway - taking out the garbage, washing the car, vaccuming and doing the dishes.

So, whether you and the kiddies fill their coupon books up with promises to do chores without complaint or with gifts for hugs-and-kisses, mom is sure to appreciate the gesture.

Supplies
  • paper
  • scissors
  • glue (optional)
  • markers
  • mom-inspired embellishments/li>
  • stapler
Directions

Step 1: Cut paper into large coupon sized rectangles. Use a different paper for the coupon book's cover and back.

Step 2: Fill the coupon pages with loving gestures or promises of chores. That can include anything from taking the garbage out for a week with no complaints or for a personalized poem.

Step 3: Staple the book together and you're done!
