5 Creative Gifts Kids can make for Mother's Day

Mother's Day is coming up in just a few weeks and a homemade gift will always make a mom feel extra special.  Here are five cute & creative gifts kids can help make for their moms or grandmothers. 






1.  Fingerprint Candles


We made these cute candles for the grandmothers last year.   They can be made with painted fingerprints or just regular drawings of any kind done on tissue paper.  They're inexpensive and surprisingly easy to make (but they look super cute!)




2.  Handprint Trees or Footprint Butterflies


Going along with the Fingerprint Candles are these two cute Springtime projects using handprints and footprints.  We made ours for our own home using fabric on canvases, but they can easily be adapted and created using pretty paper or even paint.  






3.  Photo Bookmarks


If you know a mom who likes to read, these photo bookmarks would make a great gift.  Let the kids have fun posing and then make up a few bookmarks to tuck in the pages of a new book or to go along with a gift card.  




4.  Glue Batik Artwork


Last year the kids and I had making several projects using glue batik.  (see the projects HERE and HERE).  One of my readers was inspired by our projects and made her own glue batik pictures, put them in frames and gave them as gifts.




5.  Year of Dates - (Make-your-own Scratch offs)


This Valentine's Day gift was a huge hit with my kids and we're having lots of fun doing something special each month.  I'm sure any mom or grandmom would love knowing they can scratch off a new activity to do each month. 




I hope you found some creative inspiration with these 5 cute gift ideas.  I also hope if you choose to make any of them you have as much fun as we did.  I'm sure any mom who receives one of these homemade gifts will be thrilled to get something specially made by the kids in her life.
