#1. Photo Flowers
These photo flowers are very easy to make and are a great Mother’s Day art & craft project for your child. Smaller members of the household will enjoy drawing and carefully cutting out the flowers and sticking photos.
#2. Mother’s Day Rosette
You’ll find full instructions to make a Best Grandma Ever rosette and Free Mother’s Day Printable on the club.chicacircle.com website.
A glue gun and paper cutter will make the project go faster but you could improvise and do this by hand.
#3. Encrusted Tea Light Holders
Aren’t these pretty? Craftsbyamanda has the instructions for making these sweet jars to hold tealight holders. They were originally a suggested craft for a wedding, but we think they would make a sweet Mother’s Day crafts idea.
#4. I Love You This Much Card
We think this card from Tiff Keetch is one of the most fitting Mother’s Day crafts, and yet simple enough for even little kids to get involved with.

#7. Tote Bag
Decorate a tote bag with cut apples dipped into fabric paint for a stylish shopper for Mum.
Older kids could also practice sewing as the leaves on this project at www.craftstylish.com have been appliqued on – but you could also stamp on leaf shapes in paint too if you didn’t feel confident enough to sew on fabric leaves.
#8. Fingerprint Love Hearts
Inspired by this picture we found on Agirlandagluegun.com, here is a salt dough recipe that can be used for love hearts that your child can then press their finger print onto before baking. You could make a keyring or a pendant for a necklace – super cute!
- 2 cups flour
- 1 cup salt
- cold water
Mix until it has the consistency of play dough. Bake at 250F/120C for 2 hours, then cool and you could also paint the love heart before attaching ring or cord for the pendant.
What about something very personal from your child? We put together a little sheet that your child can fill in about “My Mum”.
