My kids (pre-K) make Sculpi pins of their mother's faces. Always a big
hit. They have to try to remember their mothers hair and eye color and
how long her hair is. It's a really good thinking exercise and some of
the pins are spectacular. We just made them today and they'll be ready
by tomorrow at noon. They start with a flat circle about two and a half
inches in diameter and just add the features with colored Sculpi.

My drawing students just finished pastel self-portraits; I mentioned
they would make really nice Mother's Day gifts, so several have taken up
the idea and we will cut mats and cover them with acetate this week. I
agree with you about cheesy holiday art--why not just a gift of art?
