Mother’s Day Gifts That Kids Can Make
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.
Mom can enjoy her coffee or tea in style with these mugs. Only nail polish and water are required to create the design.
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.
Transfer a child’s artwork to a pillar candle and then scent it with mom’s favorite fragrance.
These beautiful acrylic paint pour coasters are a fun (and messy!) project for kids of all ages.
Kids decorate a white mug with oil-based Sharpie markers. Then the mug is baked in the oven to set their one-of-a-kind design.
The painting technique described in this post is the perfect way for a toddler or younger child to decorate a card for Mother’s Day or any occasion.
This simple string art craft is easy for beginners and fun to customize with different colors of string or wood.
Kids decorate this Mason jar candle holder by creating colorful flowers with their thumbprints.
If your mom loves chocolate, she’ll love it even more when arranged into a pretty bouquet. This consumable gift is great for the mom who isn’t really into having more knick-knacks around the house.
If your mom has a green thumb, seed bombs are another fun, clutter-free gift idea. You could use this free template to create little gift boxes from scrapbook paper for the seed bombs.
