  • 18
    inches ribbon (optional)

  • 1


  • Start by thinking of at least 20 nice things about your mom. Compliments are things you might say like, "You're so pretty," "You're so smart - especially at homework time" or "You're always there when I need you." "Your cookies are the best on earth" "I love it when you sing with me".
  • Cut strips of construction paper about 1 inch wide and 6 inches long.
  • Write a compliment on each strip in pen.
  • Take the strip and wrap it tightly around the pencil.
  • When you slide the paper off the pencil it should stay in a curl.
  • Put the curls into the jar.
  • Mix up the colors so they look festive.
  • If you have a photo of yourself, you can paste it on top of the jar lid. If not, draw a picture of mom with a big smile.
  • Screw on the lid and tie a ribbon around the neck of the jar.
