 Mother's Day craft ideas for kids

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 crafts

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.

Tulip towels

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.
