Today's blog is all about giving! While at home we have come to realize what an amazing job our teachers and our moms do on a daily basis, now more than ever. The first week in May is Teacher Appreciation week and soon after is Mother's Day. Say I love you to the people who care about your wellbeing by crafting a personalized, handmade gift from the heart. We have a variety of really great projects you can make while at home to send love to your teachers, mom, grandparents, and more.
