I recommend this craft for children 5 and up. It definitely requires adult supervision and depending on the age, you may need to do some of the steps. That said, try to make it the child's project as much as possible. Let them pick out the images and accents for the pendant. Don't forget to have fun!
Aleene's Paper Glaze - you could also use Diamond Glaze or Mod Podge Dimensional Magic
Metal lids from crescent roll containers - pictured above
Jewelry Bails - easy to find at the craft store
Decorative paper - scrapbook paper, magazine clippings, clip art
Embellishments - rhinestones, beads, buttons, etc. . .
Cardboard - from a cereal box or other packaging
Place metal lid on cardboard. Trace onto cardboard. Cut out. Glue inside metal lid.
Create and glue a mini collage on top of cardboard. Cover with a light coat of decoupage. Let dry.
Once dry, add a light coat of paper glaze on top. Spread out with tip of container or a paint brush. Remove any bubbles by poking them with a pin. Let dry overnight.
If you add too much paper glaze it will dry cloudy and not clear (pictured above). This was one of my prototypes for this project.
Glue jewelry bail on back of pendant with E6000 glue. Let dry overnight. This step should be done by an adult.

There are a lot of possibilities with these pendants. Make magnets, pins, cards and whatever else you can think of with them. They're not just for Mother's Day.
