Purchase a small chalkboard from a craft store that you can easily put into a frame. If you already have something that will work, you can use the chalkboard paint that’s available at your home store and use that.

Use chalk to make your “menu” for mom. If you are planning to make her a meal, this is a great way to showcase your menu for her.

Oh, and we suggest not painting a wall in the kitchen without mom’s permission

3) Cup Candles

Find the perfect cup. Then get wicks and wax at your local craft store. Clean the cup and glue wick to the center of the cup.

Fill cup with melted wax, making sure to secure the wick so that it stays upright.

Wait until hardens.

Get a flower pot of any color, as well as paint safe for your hands. Use your own hand prints along with mom to decorate the outside of it. If you have kids, use their hand prints to decorate the pot and enjoy this fun project.

5) Caramel Sauce In Cute Jars   

Caramel-SauceIngredients

2 cups sugar

12 tablespoons butter

1 cup heavy whipping cream

1 tablespoon coarse salt, in a salt grinder (I bet table salt would work too- just not dissolve quite as fast)

 

Directions

Gather heavy whipping cream, butter, (both at room temperature), sugar, and salt.
Add 2 cups of sugar to a large saucepan. Put on medium heat and wait for the sugar to start to melt.
Then begin whisking. Stop whisking and check for an amber, caramel-ish color when it turns to liquid.
Add butter, then stir until it’s mixed in evenly.
Remove from heat and slowly stir in cream. Stir in about a tablespoon of salt. Let the pan sit for about ten minutes and cool.
Pour into jars and cool to room temperature. Store in the fridge for up to 3- 4 weeks.
