Let the kids get creative by making their own Mother’s Day gifts for Mom!
Moms love to get flowers on Mother’s Day, especially when you combine them with a gift the kids have made! This year, let the kids in on the Mother’s Day fun by having them create something special just for Mom or Grandma! Here are a few kid-friendly ideas for Mother’s Day crafts from 1-800-FLOWERS.COM!
BUILDING BLOCKS VASE
A child can build a vase by using Lego® or any other interlocking blocks. Place a tall glass or cup on a table and construct a wall of blocks around it. Remove the glass, fill it with water and place it back inside the block wall. Any Mother’s Day flower arrangement will look festive here, especially when you use a variety of colors for the wall.
MOM & ME SCRAPBOOK
Create a simple scrapbook and fill it with photos of Mom’s favorite memories. All that’s necessary for this Mother’s Day craft is sturdy construction, yarn or string, a three-hole punch, tape and of course, some great photos! Punch holes along one edge of the paper, tie the paper together with the yarn to make a book, and add the photos to the pages. Decorate with crayons, pressed flowers or anything else that suits Mom’s personality! Pair this with a personalized photo vase
for more photo fun!
APPLE OF MY EYE
Use an apple as a “vase” for a unique and fun Mother’s Day gift idea. Select an apple that stands up nice and straight. Remove the stem. Using a sharp knife, pierce the apple skin at the top of the apple (adult supervision required). Insert daisy poms or flowers with a sturdy stem directly into the apple.
A Fruity Painting
Have kids channel their inner Monet with just paper, fruit and paint! Simply cut fruits and vegetables such as apples, carrots and bell peppers in half, then dip into paint and apply to the canvas. Kids will have a great time experimenting with the arranging and overlapping, while also creating their very own work of art.
A Cup of Tea for Mommy and Me
For this easy Mother’s Day craft, head to the local dollar store and pick up two blank white coffee mugs. Using permanent maker, have the child write a special message for mom, such as “#1 Mom”. The second cup is for the child to make for themselves with a heartfelt message such as “my mom is my best friend”. Surprise Mom by serving her favorite tea in the mugs with a side of sweet, home-baked cookies!
