10 Cute Homemade Mother’s Day Gifts For Kids to Make

#1. Pipe Cleaner Roses

Develop fine motor skills and create a pretty picture with these creative coiled roses made from pipe cleaners. You could use yarn if you don’t have pipe cleaners, but full instructions for the project can be found on the Pinterested Parent website.

#2. Encrusted Tealight Holders

Aren’t these so pretty? Crafts By Amanda details how to make these sweet jars to hold tealight holders. They were originally a craft for weddings, but we think they would make a lovely homemade Mother’s Day gift.

#3. Photo Flowers

Present for Mother's Day

These photo flowers are very easy to make, allowing the smaller members of the household to join in on the Mother’s Day fun! You will need some card, photos and straws or pipe cleaners.

This tissue paper flower pot is a colourful, fun and hands-on homemade Mother’s Day gift idea that is the brainwave of From ABCs to ACTs. Once dry, the tissue paper makes cool designs and this is a vibrant pop of colour that would brighten up any garden or home.

#5. Hand Shaped Bowls

We love this idea from Messy Little Monster. The salt dough handprint bowl can be made from the shape of your child’s hand. The bowl is a perfect size for rings, cufflinks or keys. Get Dad to be the leader of this craft and help your little ones create this cute keepsake.

If you or your mother loves a luxurious, scented bath, then this recipe for DIY bath bombs, is the perfect Mother’s Day gift. Taking just a few basic and natural ingredients, it’s so simple to make. You can also personalise the bath bombs by choosing their favourite scent or colour. All the instructions are on the Fiber Artsy.

#8. Pedicure in a Jar

Give their nails some TLC. Make this thoughtful pedicure (or manicure) jar by filling a mason jar with bits and pieces for a pedicure, and tie the top with a nice ribbon. You could include items like nail polish wipes, nail file, nail polish, cotton pads, nail glitter, and a sachet of foot soak or foot peel.

#9. 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.

#10. Handprint Tote Bag

This sweet Mother’s Day idea comes from diddlium. It involves your child’s hands dipped in paint and placed on canvas tote bags to make handprints into flower patterns. Rotate the bag four times and press the paint-covered hand carefully down.

Paint the middle, the stem and add leaves on. For the finishing touch, grab a ribbon of a matching colour and tie it to the handle.
