I don’t know about you but my favorite Mother’s Day gifts are the ones that have a purpose. While I love any gift my girls make for me, I prefer ones that I can use for something. A painted ceramic animal is always cute but the gift I probably use more than anything is the spoon rest that my youngest made for me. It’s always right next to my stove and I think of her every time I use it.

Mother’s Day crafts need to be easy though. I can’t help make my own gift so the girls need to be able to do it themselves or with a little help from dad. That’s why I love this easy Mother’s Day pencil holder. It’s easy enough that even the youngest kids can make it and it can be used to hold pencils, craft supplies or anything else you want to use it for.

Just grab a few supplies and you’re good to go!
