Homemade Mother’s Day gifts really are the sweetest to receive as they have been handmade with love. If your child (or their Dad!) needs a steer on something to make for Mother’s Day, then these adorable Mother’s Day Crafts might be just the ticket.
Don’t miss the chance to have your say! We’re looking for parents to get involved and give their feedback on all aspects of family life. Find out more here.
There’s something so sweet about your child handing you a homemade gift on Mother’s Day, they are so proud and their slightly wonky efforts are always adorable.

Adorable Mother’s Day Crafts
#1. Photo Flowers
These photo flowers are very easy to make, so little hands don’t get frustrated when trying to express their love for you. They will also enjoy drawing and carefully cutting out the flowers and sticking the photos on.
#2. Mother’s Day Rosette
Isn’t this a nice idea? A special rosette to award to best Grandma ever (or could be one for a Mum too!). You’ll find full instructions to make the best grandma ever rosette and a free Mother’s Day printable on the Chica Circle website.
A glue gun and the 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? Crafts by Amanda has the instructions for making these cool encrusted tea light holders. The process also works if they want to make you a sweet or money jar. Although this craft was originally for a wedding, we think they would make a sweet Mother’s Day present too.
#4. 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.
#5. Flower Pots
Decorate a flower pot and either plant some flower seeds in it, or buy a small flowering plant to go in it. You’ll find instructions for this sweet Mother’s Day craft on the Family Education website.
#6. 3D Flowers
Mother’s Day crafts don’t get much more creative than this! These 3D flowers have the personalised touch of having your child’s hand holding them and they can make your favourite flowers too. There’s so much room for imagination with this craft.
#7. DIY Candle
This Mother’s Day craft is a great one for your older children to do with the supervision of an adult. The colourful DIY candle from the Pinning Mama is excellent for reusing old crayons you have laying around the house.
#8. Fingerprint Love Hearts
We love these gorgeous fingerprint love heart keyrings from the website A Girl and a Glue Gun. A perfect craft for Dads to do with the kids as they will need some help in the kitchen baking the love hearts and getting their fingerprint to show up.
Let your child loose and see how well they know you with our free downloadable Mother’s Day sheet. We definitely don’t take any responsibility for cheeky answers about your age or what makes you happy (Mum how do you spell wine?). But it will sure to give you a giggle and some heartwarming moments.
#10. Origami Roses
This is a beautiful craft if you have kids of all different ages, they can watch the YouTube tutorial which takes you step by step on how to make these sweet red roses. Origami is tricky but with practice and persistence, it is a worthwhile Mother’s Day craft they’ll be so proud of.
