Mother’s Day is around the corner. I’ve been searching for a few projects to make with the kids for their mother and grandmothers. I found quite a few adorable projects that would be perfect gifts for this special occasion.
I always try to find a variety of crafts to offer the kids, because I never know what will inspire them. One day they love markers and crayons, the next day it could be finger paints. I also look for projects that require materials that I have on hand or that I can purchase from the Dollar Tree. You how much I love that store.
I wanted to share my roundup with you in hopes that you will be inspired to make a few Mother’s Day gifts with your children or grandchildren:
1. Picture Flower Pot – The Daily Craziness. My thought is to the create the flower pot as shown and than place a pot of tulips inside of it that can planted in the yard after Mother’s Day. The pot can be used later for herbs and placed in the kitchen window.
2. Button Bouquet – Pinterest, but I was unable to locate it on the site referenced. It seems pretty simple to make, so bring out that jar of buttons, make a pretty bow and a few stem and start gluing. I think the kids will have fun placing the buttons to make the bouquet.
3. Heart House – Crafty Morning Great way to show mom how much you appreciate the home she has made for you. I found the idea on . A few craft sticks, buttons, cut out heart, some glue and you’re good to go.
4. Hand Print Flower – Nifty Mom. Simple enough to make with a toddler, finger paints and some card stock.
5. Teacup – Mr. Printables. It’s actually an invitation for a t.ea party, but it was so adorable I thought it could be adapted as a Mother’s Day gift. What’s better than a tea party invitation from your son or daughter.
6. Hand Print Vase – Love Bugs and Post Cards. This could be a fun project. Coming up with reasons why the kids love mom or grandma and tracing little hands can be a great way to start a Saturday.
7. Watering Can Mother’s Day Card – Crafty Morning. This project is at the top of my list. I will be changing the blue hearts with water drops. This blogger has several other Mother’s Day projects on her site, so be sure to check them out.
8. Mother’s Day Coupons – Penny Pinching Mom. I love this idea. You print the coupons, color them, and than give them to mom. The coupons are for 1 breakfast in bed and 2 loads of folded laundry. How cute is that.
9. Mom Deserves A Hand – Happy Home Fairy The card is a free printable. Head to Bath & Body and let the kids pick out their favorite scent for mom. Clever idea.
10. Bottle Cap Flower – Crafty Morning This is an easy craft to make in little time. You will need to collect beer bottle caps, stock card, glue and a Sharpie. I saw this card on another site with a twist, the word MOM had been added to the top 3 caps for a personal touch.
11. Love You Bunches – Crafty Morning This one is perfect for toddlers. It requires finger paints, stock card, and the joy of sticking your thumb in the paint. I would suggest making dots on the stock card and using the dots as a guide for the shape.
12. Folding Craft Stick Flowers – Danielle’s Place I loved the idea of the gift folding and being wrapped with a simple ribbon. My initial thought was to put a magnet on the back and stick it on the refrigerator after grandma or mom opens it or hang it with a pretty ribbon. Be creative.
13. Fingerprint Flowers – Crafty Morning I think this is adorable for little fingers and you don’t need a lot of materials to complete the project. If you don’t have scrapbook paper, stock card or construction paper should work.
14. Picture Monogram – BHG Be creative and use either M for mom, G for Grandma, or N for Nana if that’s what they children your mom or mother-in-law.
15. Lion Card – Crafty Morning This little card will be easy to make with a fork, marker, a piece of stock card, and eyes from your local craft store. I actually found a bag of eyes at the Dollar Store for a buck.
16. Love You To Pieces – Clip Zine. Have a puzzle laying around with missing pieces? Recycle it and make this adorable gift for mom or grandma.
17. Hand Print Towel – This Simple Home. This is a great idea for Mother’s Day, Christmas or a birthday present.
18. Hand Print Bouquet – Simply Sweet Teaching I love the idea of using hand and foot prints children’s art. This idea could be framed or a background other than black used. I do love adding the year to the print.
