Each week Sharon at Mom on Dealz [1] bring you a craft you can create with your child that is both frugal and educational.

This week she went with a Mother’s Day craft. There are so many gifts for Mother’s Day on the internet and in books; she tried to pick a couple of the most frugal ones that allow you to use materials around the house.
