Nothing pleases Mom more than being remembered on Mother's Day with a gift from the heart. Here's a fun jewelry-making project from old junk jewelry. Once the kids get started, plan on making a designer's collection to give to grandmothers, aunts and other special women your children remember on Mother's Day.
Cover a worktable with newspaper, and gather the following items: junk jewelry, pliers, scissors, cardboard, velvet or solid-color fabric scraps, glue and jewelry clasps.
Begin the project by assisting school-age children in taking apart the jewelry with pliers. For example, take petals off of a flower pin, rhinestones from a bracelet or beads from a necklace. Avoid using any sharp pieces.
