Flower pots make great Mother's Day presents. Children can personalise the flower pot they will give their mom by first drawing a design in pencil and then filling in the design with acrylic paint. Make the gift even more special by filling the pot with potting soil and growing a seed inside. The child can give his or her mom the pot when the seed has sprouted, and the flower planted in it will continue to brighten her days as it grows.
