More Mother’s Day Craft Ideas

Decorative Flower Pot

Even if the special woman in your child’s life doesn’t have a green thumb, she can still use this flower pot. Flower pots can be used for much more than flowers — including pens and pencils, cooking utensils, remote controls, and more. Let your child get creative with painting the pot. And if you desire, fill the pot with a green plant, cactus, small blooming flower, or herbs.

Candle Holder

If you’ve got baby food jars on hand you can clean and recycle them for this project. If not, inexpensive jars, containers, or vases can usually be found at your local craft store or dollar store. Let kids use tissue paper and Mod Podge from your local craft store to decoupage the jars. Once the jars are dry, insert a candle — either a tea light, votive, or pillar depending on the size of your container.

Outside Artistic Declaration

Give the kids some sidewalk chalk, and let them get to work creating a declaration of love for the special woman in their lives. While their chalk creation won’t last for too long, it’ll provide the recipient with some “free time,” which is always a favorite Mother’s Day gift. Just be sure to photograph the chalk creation so you can frame it to keep as a memento.

Message in a Bottle

Head to the craft store and purchase some colored sand and small bottles — glass for older kids, plastic for younger artists. Fill the jar part-way with the sand, and then put a special note inside the jar. Notes can be either typed or hand-written but should be a heartfelt declaration of love. Use the remaining sand to fill the rest of the jar.

Another Handprint Flower

This project can be done on construction paper and then framed or put onto an apron or canvas bag. Use painted handprints to serve as the flower’s petals. Paint a green stem, and if you’d like you can create a green leaf with the date.
