A creative (and simple) gift

This kids craft project is ideal for preschoolers and even older kids as a great quick and fun gift for parents.

Take your plastic cup or an old mug and fill it with dirt. Wrap the cup up in cellophane and tie a ribbon around it. Then print out the poem below and attach it to the cup:

I planted some seeds in hopes that they would grow.
Something went wrong, I just did not know.
So instead of some flowers, it is a cupful of dirt.
I love you and hope that your feelings are not too hurt.
