Mother's Day craft ideas
Mother's Day craft ideas
A child-made gift is a wonderful way to share the love this Mother's Day. Without further ado, here are eight amazing projects that children can make (with the help of a dad or partner) to show Mum how much they care.
Colourful greeting card – with cupcake case 'petals', button 'pollen' and a stem drawn with crayon, this card says it with flowers – 'Happy Mother's Day'.
Poetic flower pot – take a paper cup and decorate it with squares of coloured tissue paper. Once it's dry, fill the 'flower pot' with soil and plant a seed in it. Then stick this poem to the side: I am still small, like a seed in the ground, but because of your love, I soon will be found. Growing up strong, and beautiful too, from all the love I've gotten from you.
Wool-wrapped heart – once a grown-up has cut out the cardboard heart border, it's over to the preschooler to paint it red and wrap colourful wool around and around. This is a great fine motor skills activity and lovely gift as well.
Celery-stamped roses – to make Mum a pretty card (or tea towel), just dip a celery stalk in pink paint and stamp! With some green leaves added on, this craft idea will come up roses.
Magic mirror – Mums will live happily ever after with this cute keepsake. Cut some paper into the shape of a hand-held mirror, then stick the child's self-portrait into the frame. At the top, add a tag that says, 'Mirror, mirror on the wall, who has the best Mum of them all?' Here's looking at you kid!
Kid-made Mother's Day book – Containing hand-drawn illustrations and all the things they love about Mum, this publication has the personal touch. And whether kids use this blank template or design their own pages, it's a little book of love.
Kandinsky-inspired heart art – Incorporating colour-mixing and heart-felt creativity, this water colour painting is a beautiful project for junior artists.
Superhero figurine: With a cardboard cape, paper mask, woolly hair and 'Mum is my hero!' tag, kids can make a little supermum to match their big one.
We wish you a very happy Mother's Day on Sunday, 13 May.
