Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and while flowers are a very sweet gift, something homemade might make Mom feel extra special!

This Mother’s Day, try making Mom a gift that not only can she enjoy for more than a few days, but one that shows just how much she means to you!

When it comes to craft ideas, this one takes the cake. It’s simple, customizable, and looks great at home or at the office! All you need is some colored paper, a coffee filter or cupcake liner, paper straw, and small pot. Kids can paint the pot whichever color they choose, fill it up with candy, Styrofoam, anything they want. Cut out a small picture of the family or themselves and paste it in the middle of the flower. The finished product will leave mom smiling for days!


This one is pretty self-explanatory and easy to accomplish. Many different websites offer easy templates to keep everything creative and all about Mom! One website even offers free online printing services where you choose 12 blank frames and 10 prompts that your kids can fill out for even more personalization.

If mom is always cooking up delicious dinners and baking tasty treats, try personalizing one of her most used kitchen tools! It may be simple, but the thought behind it is truly sweet! Have your child paint their hand in a contrasting color and put their hand on the oven mitt for a gift she’ll be able to appreciate for years to come!

Combining the personal touch of fingerprints and the creative touch of drawings will definitely put a smile on mom’s face. This handmade Mason jar card is perfect! Kids can draw lightening bugs on their fingerprints to really bring the idea to life!

If mom is a big reader, having a personalized bookmark will have her smiling every time she uses it! Go on a walk around the backyard or local park to pick small, colorful flowers and leaves. Dry them and press onto light brown cardstock for a remarkable finish. Don’t forget to seal it to make sure the flowers and leaves last a lifetime!
