Mother's Day Craft

Easy DIY Mother's Day Craft for Kids

If you’re anything like me, if you want a special little pressie from your little one this Mothers’ Day then you are likely to have to orchestrate the whole thing yourself. Cassie is quite the artist and has put together some great creations for her Daddy in her 18 months of life, but in our busy lives it can be hard for Daddy to squirrel away with her and return the favour. So this year I have decided to go all out – just because I am sitting and watching her put together my present, doesn’t make it any less special. Plus, there is also my own mum and mother-in-law to think about, and who can pass up a gorgeous homemade option?

I have scoured the internet and found what I believe to be the best of the best when it comes to getting your craft on this Mothers’ Day. Pinterest is always a great source of inspiration and I could honestly spend days and days going through all the awesome craft posts on there. If you are looking to encourage your little one to make a present for yourself, for your wife, or for your own mother or mother-in-law, you are sure to find something you love in this collection.


You really can’t go wrong with flowers, and let’s face it, the store bought variety never really survive long. You can help your little one practise their fine motor skills (if they are old enough to be using scissors), or lend a helping hand (yes, pun intended), to create this gorgeous hand bouquet of flowers. The perfect keepsake!

Of course, tissue paper is another great option that you can’t go wrong with. I remember doing this kind of craft as a kid, and it was so simple, yet always looked so good. Get scrunching and glueing to create this piece of art.

Who knew cupcake patties could be so versatile. Corny and fun, I know this idea will put a smile on a lot of faces, so I think we will be giving it a go this year. I love that you can personalise with your choice of colours to make it that extra bit special.

Love Hearts

Naturally, flowers aren’t for everyone, so why not take a more traditional route with some gorgeous love hearts. Versatile and they get your message across as clearly as possible. Everybody loves a candle, and these sweet tissue paper candle holders (adorned with love hearts of course) make a practical and beautiful gift for a loved one. Once again you can personalise the colours to their tastes.

I was never great at paper chains as a child, but I reckon Cassie and I could give these love heart versions a whirl. They would make fun decorations for our place and get us in the festive spirit.

This one is an oldie but a goodie, and I have seen plenty of versions floating around on Valentine’s Day. It’s a great activity for bubba’s who are too little to get their craft on, simple position their feet in a V shape and you have your perfect love heart. You can turn this into whatever you like!

It’s totally a thing. All mums drink tea. We don’t always get to it while it is warm, but I seem to permanently be attached to my cuppa. That’s why these little tea cup ideas are just so cute. These flowers in a teacup have to be my all-time favourite. Have you ever seen anything so sweet? I’m pretty sure this will be my take home gift this year for Mothers’ Day ready to take pride of place on our fridge.

I love that this project uses an old egg carton as well as a teabag! So simple, yet so effective and bound to put some happy smiles on people’s faces. Pick your loved one’s favourite tea and get creating something a bit different.


Finally, keep things simple with these gorgeous little card. I love how the stuffing works as tea steam, and the little doily underneath to add a touch of elegance. A handmade card is bound to be kept and treasured for years to come.
