There’s nothing more heartwarming than receiving a homemade keepsake from your little one, and any mum will know how special anything their child makes is to them, even if you don’t always know exactly what it’s supposed to be!
As this Mother’s Day is set to look a little different, and it’s unlikely we’ll be going out for any afternoon teas, we’ve put together some fun DIY Mother’s Day inspired craft ideas for you to do with your tots on the day or to gift your favourite mums.
Kids will love getting stuck into these easy craft ideas that will make the perfect gifts for Mother's Day!
Mother's Day rocks
We love the idea of using these personalised stones as paper weights or on outside window sills. First go out and pick the perfect stone to paint on. Then all you need are some acrylic paints and brushes (and maybe some old newspaper sheets to protect your table) and you and your kids can create a thoughtful design on the stone.
You can never have too many tea towels and we think mums and grandmas will love these personalised tea towels make using handprints to create handprint flowers. You'll need some plain white tea towels and fabric paint to get you started with this make.
Flowers and vase
Although flowers are always a lovely gift to receive, it's always a bit sad when they die. These DIY flowers and vases are not only a lovely craft to make, they'll brighten up your day, everyday!
Hand flower bouquet
There's something extra special about this bouquet, and that's the fact that the flowers are the shape of little hand prints! Ask each child to write their name on their hand print flower so mum can easily see which flower belongs to who.
Thumbprint plant pots
Ideal for green fingered mums - decorate some adorable mini plant pots with some tiny thumbprints to create some personalised insect designs.
Flower pot cards
These adorable tulips make a lovely gift and card in one. When you undo the little ribbon bow, mum will find a sweet Mother's Day message they can cherish forever.
You are my sunshine canvas
Inspired by the nursery rhyme, this lovely canvas can be hung up in the home to add some light to each day. Even the smallest of babies can help out with this one and it can easily be done on paper if you don't have a canvas.
These lovely keepsake magnets look adorable on any fridge or magnetic board and once you've mastered the art of making them, they make lovely gifts for any special occassion.
Egg carton flowers
Use up your old egg cartons by making these adorbale flowers on straws! They'd look so cute sat in a small jar or vase on the kitchen window sill!
Love you this much hand prints
We love this adorable 'we love you this much' craft project that provides the perfect way of saying I love you to mummy.
