One of the things I love about being a mother is the gorgeous little handwritten notes and handmade gifts my girls present me with, at anytime of year. However, with Mother’s Day just around the corner I know many Childhood 101 readers will be looking for inspiration for gifts to make with the small people in their lives so I have collated three handmade gift guides. This one is the first – Mother’s Day gifts to make with toddlers, to be followed early next week with ideas for preschoolers and also school aged children.
