May already?! Is anyone else finding that hard to believe? That means Mother’s Day is right around the corner! There are many store-bought gifts that are certainly very nice for Mom (or Grandma). But, from the kids, I think the handmade gifts really are the most meaningful! And, especially for this holiday, something that the kids can actually make on their own (or at least be heavily involved in) is extra special. So, for this Mother’s Day, I’ve rounded up a list of 10+ simple Mother’s Day gifts that kids can help make! Mother's Day Crafts

  1. Crafty flowers
  2. Plaster handprints
  3. Easy picture frame
  4. Thumbprint notes
  5. Box of Love
  6. Craft stick jewelry box
  7. Spring footprint towels
  8. Fingerprint candles
  9. Handprint canvases
  10. Fingerprint pendants

I’m a sucker for handprint/footprint/thumbprint crafts! It’s so fun to have something tangible with memories of their little tiny hands & feet. So, I think the little fingerprint pendants are a really neat idea! Fingerprint PendantsAnd, because I love the handprint crafts, we made an art piece for Grandma for Mother’s Day last year! Just some cute finger painting and handprints make such a cute work of art! ;)
