Mother’s Day Gifts That Kids Can Make

by | Apr 10, 2021 | holidays | 1 comment

Mother’s Day is right around the corner, so it’s time to start thinking about what to get Mom! Sure, you could order something on Amazon or grab a gift at a local department store. But, Mom is sure to love a handmade gift, especially when the gift is from a child. Handmade gifts often become keepsakes that are still cherished years down the road.

If you need DIY gift ideas for your children to choose from, you’ve come to the right place. These handmade gifts are the perfect way for children to show their appreciation to their mom, grandma, aunt, or any other special mom in their lives. These gifts could be made in homeschool co-ops, Sunday school classes, or at home with Dad or another family member’s help.  I’ve tried to include gift ideas for both younger and older children.

Marbled Nail Polish Mugs

Mom can enjoy her coffee or tea in style with these mugs. Only nail polish and water are required to create the design.

Origami Greeting Card

The origami flowers on this card only require a few folds to create. The painted background is also very simple, making this a good project for younger kids.
