Mother's Day Craft Ideas

Here are a few suggestions for some craft ideas that both adults & kids can make or do for their Mum on Mother's Day:
  • Make her a home-made card with a personal message or poem in it. Or maybe send her a FREE Mother's Day Cybercard!
  • Paint or draw her a picture of something she would like - flowers, the family, her favourite animal, a self-portrait.
  • Make and decorate her a photo frame, and put a photo of yourself or the family in it.
  • Plant her a bulb or pot her a plant. You could decorate the pot yourself. Pick her some wild flowers and arrange them on the kitchen table in a vase.
  • Decorate the fridge or white board with pictures and images from old magazines. Leave her a nice message wishing her a happy Mother's Day in the picture.
  • Make her some artificial flowers using straws, paper, card, tissue paper etc. Paint them up and spray with a little bit of perfume.
  • Make her a homemade herb box or pot. Decorate with paints and/or stuck on pictures. Fill with herbs and spices.
  • Decorate a glass bottle or jar with ribbons and stickers. Fill with sweets or chocolates. Alternatively decorate a nice chest or box.
  • Paint and decorate various stones with faces, shapes and colours to make homemade paperweights.
