Begin by folding a piece of construction paper in half so that the fold is to the right of you (rice cake optional:)).
Next, have your kiddo lay his or her hand down so his or her thumb is touching the folded edge.
Now, trace your kiddo's hand with a black marker. It's okay if they move... Mom will love it even more. :)
Now flip the paper over and do the same thing to the other side of the fold.
When you have traced both hands, find the part in the middle of where your kiddo's thumbs meet to make a point. That is going to be the bottom of the heart. Draw (or if your kiddo is older they can draw) the top part of the heart shape.
For the older ones, they can certainly cut this out themselves but I helped my three-year-old cut hers out. Next, have your child decorate it with some construction paper crayons.
Lastly, write (or have an older kiddo) write, "Mommy you have my heart". Present to Mom on Mother's Day and bring the tissues!
