Mother’s Day is coming up soon, and while it’s nice to be spoilt, there is something special about receiving a little present our kids have made themselves isn’t there? I’ve put together some easy Mothers Day crafts for you to try with your little ones so they can give a little something made with love, and possibly glitter this Mother’s Day.
Easy Mothers Day Crafts
Lollipop Flowers are so easy to make, and they last a lot longer than a bunch of real flowers too. They are simple to make, and your kids can let their imagination run free as they create you a unique bunch of flowers for Mother’s Day. All you need is:
- Various sheets of card/paper/foam
- Lollipop sticks
- Variety of buttons
- Glue Dots/Glue
Pipe Cleaner Flowers
Sticking with the flowers theme, Pipe Cleaners Flowers are fun to make and look really cute when they’re finished. You don’t need a lot to make them, and your kids will be able to present you with a fabulously colourful bunch of flowers after finishing their Mother’s Day crafts. For this craft you need:
- Pipe cleaners in different colours
- A small plastic pot
Stained Glass Flowers
You will be pleased to know you don’t actually need any glass to make the stained glass flowers. As far as Mother’s Day crafts go this one is straightforward to do, although younger children will need help when it comes to the cutting and possibly sticking to the sticky back plastic. They look great when they’re finished and make a lovely alternative to the usual flower crafts. For this one you will need:
- Coloured card
- Sticky back plastic
- Various flowers and leaves – whatever you can find
- Sellotape or any circular shape to use as a border
Of course, flowers aren’t the only Mother’s Day Crafts you can do with your children. Some fellow bloggers kindly shared some ideas they have over on their blogs that are perfect for kids!
