Mother’s Day Crafts for Kids
#1. Flower Photos
These flowery photo cards are just wholesome. Cleverly using cupcake holders for the petals of the flowers, this Mother’s Day craft came from Ana Maria Linero on Pinterest.
#2. Five Things I Love

Some of the best Mother’s Day crafts for kids are brought home in their school bag, and this is where the next craft comes from. Make a “5 Things I Love About My Mother” card using traced hand shapes with numbered fingers and a ribbon to hold the hands together.
#3. Paper Bunch of Flowers
Isn’t this sweet? It’s a bunch of paper flowers stuck to a folded piece of card tied with a ribbon. Pretend like you’re making a paper aeroplane to get the folds. The tiny pompoms glued for the centre of the flowers are the perfect finishing touches. We love this craft from giusy on Pinterest.
#4. Popsicle Stick Flowers
Another cute craft is these pretty popsicle stick flowers. The idea is another gem from Pinterest courtesy of Murat. The doilies are such a nice touch that gives it a feminine feel. The popsicle sticks are the perfect place to pop the date, so when you find it years later, it’s been timestamped.

#5. Mother’s Day Coupon Book
On Mother’s Day, a few years ago, my kids surprised me with this clever coupon book full of lovely treats. My particular favourite was “you get to choose the songs in the car one journey”. Diva of DIY has instructions for how to make this easy and unique Mother’s Day craft.
#6. String Heart Card
I love these, not only are they easy but it’s a great sewing activity for kids too. You will need colourful yarn as well as thick card stock and a large threading needle. Draw your heart shape onto the card and punch holes on the edge of the heart. Sew the yarn through the holes in different directions until your heart is filled in.
#7. I Love You This Much Card
To make these adorable “I Love You This Much” hand card, trace your child’s hand twice and cut out the hands. Fold a strip of paper accordion style. Write the words “This Much” on the strip of paper and “I Love You” on the hands. Stick the “hands” to the accordion strip and your child will be ready to present their unique card.
#8. Button Heart
A very different type of craft, this button heart with a special saying in the middle is such a lovely gift to make for your mother or to receive. Your child will enjoy picking out a variety of buttons from your stash and glueing them down into a heart shape. We just love the message in the middle saying “Mums are like buttons, they hold everything together” – and we couldn’t agree more.
#9. Superhero Chocolate Bar
Who doesn’t love receiving chocolate as a gift? This DIY superhero chocolate bar is quirky and thoughtful, as you could always put in the person’s favourite sweet treat. This idea comes from I Heart Crafty Things.
#10. Craft Stick Flower Pots
This craft stick flower pots project from Typically Simple is so sweet and colourful. It’s lovely to give to mothers who have green fingers and are into plants and gardening. The best bit about this craft is that it doesn’t even need glue!
