With Mother’s Day right around the corner, everyone wants to buy mom a special present to thank mom for being the person she is! If you have a young child or if you want to allow your child to create something for a special mom in his/her life, there are plenty of DIY crafts that can be completed at home. Not only are crafts fun and exciting for kids, they also allow children to create something from the heart! Here are five Mother’s Day crafts for kids that mom is sure to love.
1. Recycled and upcycled vases No one looks at a tin can or an empty mason jar and thinks that either can be re-used, but both of these items can be recycled and turned into beautiful flower planters! All you need to use to spruce them up is paint! Children can add stickers, washi tape, glitter and even ribbons to make the vase extra special to them.
2. Scrabble letter picture Scrabble letters can be used to spell all sorts of words, so use them to spell out adjectives to describe mom! The tiles can be painted to enhance their natural wood colors. Be sure to frame the tiles so that mom can enjoy all year long!
3. Modge Podge candle holders Who doesn’t like to burn candles? Whether it’s at dinner or in the bath, candles are a perfect gift. Purchase inexpensive candle holders and allow a child to use tissue paper and Modge Podge to decorate the glass! Cut out shapes, such as hearts and flowers or use stripes of different colored paper to create a design!
4. Fingerprint painting Fingerprints make for perfect petals! Paint a flower on a large canvas and then allow the child to use his/her fingers to create petals. Be sure to use colors that mom is sure to love! Add a message to the painting to make it personal and unique.
5. Succulent garden A succulent garden is the perfect gift for any mom, even those without a green thumb! Create a garden using any type of glass container. Be sure to add dirt and a little water as well as rocks and of course succulents! This low-maintenance gift will bring a smile to any mom’s face.
