It only felt like yesterday that it was Christmas, and Mother’s Day is now fast approaching! Whether it’s going to be the first year that you’re a Mum on Mother’s Day or not, there’s no denying that it’s such a special day filled with love, thought and little giggles! Whilst flowers and chocolates are a lovely gift, it’s the ones that come from the heart of your little ones that are the most priceless, and something to look back on in years to come and cherish with a smile! So if you’re struggling for ideas on what to get your little one to give to their Mum this year, or just want some fun craft projects to get stuck into during the weekends or the holidays, here are 10 unique Mother’s Day gift ideas that any child can make – suitable crafting ideas for all ages!
#1. Draw A Heart
One of the most thoughtful gifts that really is from the heart is the idea of drawing a heart onto a piece of paper and writing all of the things within it that they love and admire about their Mum, or are thankful for. This idea is great for slightly older children, and they can make it as colourful as they want!
#2. Fingerprint Painting
An idea that children of all ages can get involved in, and something that is a bit of messy fun too! Help your child draw an outline of an image on a piece of paper such as a heart of a flower and get them to colour it in with different coloured fingerprints, this makes the piece completely unique to the child, and to their mum!
#3. Holiday Jar
Get your child to remember one of their most recent holidays together with their Mum and get them to fill a jar with a whole host of items that they remember it by. Do they have any pictures? Shells? Sand? etc – you can be as creative as you want!
#4. Hand Print Heart
Even the little ones can get involved with some crafts with supervision from their Dad! Get their little hands and fingers creative with some paint, and have them create a hand print heart with two hands! This would look great done onto white paper and which can then be framed or given as a card.
#5. Flower Corsage
Make Mum her very own flower corsage with these easy step by step tips that you can find here. You can be as creative with the colours of the tissue paper as you want, and they will truly be cherished on her favourite blouse!
#6. Create A Scrapbook
A present that can be added to each year is a scrapbook. Great for older children to get stuck into, get them to create pages of their favourite memories with their Mum with pictures, printed paper, stickers and whatever crafts bits you have to hand!
#7. Descriptive Writing
A present that is not only thoughtful and caring, but an educational task for older children. This Ice Cream craft encourages your child to think of all of the descriptive words that they would use to describe their lovely mum by – an excellent way to get them to learn some fab new vocabulary too!
#8. Hand Print Vases
The best gift ideas from the little ones really is anything that involves hand printing! Grab an old vase or coloured pot and up-cycle it with some pretty ribbon, and get them to stamp their little hand onto it in some contrasting coloured paint. Finish the present off by filling it with some gorgeous flowers!
#9. Mother’s Day Bag
We love this idea for a Mother’s Day bag that can have any theme you want – Breakfast in Bed, Spa Day or a treats bag for example. The child can then find things to fill the bag with that they know is their mums favourite, the breakfast in bed bag could include a napkin, breakfast bar, tea bag and biscuits!
#10. Mother’s Day Newspaper
For a bit of fun that any child can get involved in is this Mother’s Day newspaper free printable. As if it was taken from the front page of a newspaper, this special edition features a blank space which can be drawn on and lots of tick boxes and sentences that are waiting to be completed with details of your mum!
