Let’s Celebrate Mother’s Day

What better way to make someone feel special than with a homemade gift? So, to make things simple, we have gathered some of our favorite Mother’s Day crafts and activities to help celebrate the occasion.

Kid-made gifts are one of a kind and so meaningful. Gifts from the heart are truly so special and your little one will have tons of fun in the process – we hope you enjoy these ideas just as much as we do!

What a great way to build fine motor skills while making an adorable Mother’s Day vase! We just love this creative gift idea from Meri Cherry.

Mother’s Day mason jar votive

We also love this fun mason jar votive holder from I Heart Arts and Crafts. It is simply adorable and would make the perfect keepsake! 

Homemade Mother’s Day card

Instead of buying a generic card, why not involve your kids and expand their creativity by making a personalized tissue paper flower card like the one we found from Buggy and Buddy. Build those pre-writing skills as kids make a card for that special mom in their lives!

Kids can put their own spin on this adorable watercolor bookmark idea from Craftberry Bush. Pair it with a book and you have a lovely Mother’s Day gift!

DIY gift wrap

Add an extra special touch to your Mother’s Day gift with a homemade gift wrap. We love these homemade gift wrap ideas from Happy Hooligans. You can also repurpose existing artwork into unique wrapping paper.
