First of all, we made them a card. On the front was a bunch of flowers that were made with our fingerprints. Inside was a personal message that was painstakingly written in our very best handwriting. We were very lucky that Adam had learned how to make a necklace when he went to Keas. He explained how to make it with a washer, permanent markers and a reef knot in a workshop. We were able to have the card made and necklace wrapped in time for Mother’s Day.
There were some surprised mums on the day.
