#1. Pipe Cleaner Roses

If you’re looking for an easy craft for kids for Mother’s Day, these coiled roses made from pipe cleaners are pretty and are great for developing fine motor skills as well. You could use yarn if you don’t have pipe cleaners.

Instructions for the project can be found on The Pinterested Parent website.

#5. Hand Shaped Bowls

I love this idea from Messy Little Monster for a hand print bowl made out of salt dough in the shape of your child’s hand. This is such a cute keepsake craft and the bowl is a perfect size for rings, cufflinks or keys.

These are perfect homemade Mother’s Day gifts or even for Father’s Day or for Christmas.

#8. Pedicure in a Jar

I love this idea, to make a Pedicure (or Manicure) Jar with bits and pieces for a pedicure popped into a mason jar and tied with a nice ribbon. You could include:

  • nail polish wipes
  • nail file
  • nail polish
  • cotton pads
  • nail glitter
  • a sachet of foot soak or foot peel

#9. Button Heart

This is adorable, a button heart with special saying in the middle. Your child will enjoy picking out different buttons from your button stash and glueing the buttons into a heart shape onto a fabric covered board. Then you’ll need a large heart to hang in the middle with the sweet saying “Mums are like buttons, they hold everything together”. Aw….

#10. Handprint Tote Bag

This is so sweet, it’s your child’s hands dipped in paint and placed on canvas tote bags to make handprints into flower patterns. Rotate the bag 4 times and press the paint covered hand carefully down. Then paint the middle and the stem and leaves on.

Then a ribbon in a matching colour has been tied to the handle to finish off this lovely homemade Mother’s Day gift.
