5 Amazing Mother's Day Craft Ideas for MOM

The Mother's Day gifts were completed this morning with my daughter's Kinders like 7years ago!  Yes you read that correctly...

I LOVE how they turned out then and looking back they are to darn cute not to share again! 

They were soooooo adorable. You should have seen how proud each child was when they completed the project. A few just kept walking up to the display with a huge toothless smile and could not stop staring at them. We had to place them on the windowsill for ALL to see! 

So, here are the details and directions on how to create the cutest Mother's Day Gift ever...Oh did I tell you how proud the kiddos were and how cute it is? #canthelpmyselftsodarncute!

I just had to update this post in order to share it with all of you!

It is quick and easy if you have all the materials ready to go. 

This cute heart thumbprint treasure can be used for any special occasion with your own children like Aunt Katie's birthday, or Great Aunt Mary's or maybe Mimi's #hinthint (If my daughters are reading this, did you get that last part???)

 So Here are some pictures of this amazing, dazzling, sweet, not too sparkly cutest Mother's Day Gift EVER!!!!!

Materials Needed:

1.  5X7 Thin Canvases or white/colored construction drawing paper.
2.  Various Colors of acrylic paints.
3. Heart stencil (I cut one from card stock)
4. Kiddos thumbprints
5. A poem for the back, which you can copy the one I wrote or make up your own.
6. Frames from the dollar store (optional).


1.  Tape stencil onto the canvas/paper.

2.  Use paint and have each child dot their thumbprints inside the heart shape.

3.  It might look like this...PERFECT or not, but that is okay...it looks cute no matter what!

4. Take the stencil off and here is what you have!!!
5. Have the students, if they can, use a Sharpie of their choice and write Happy Mother's Day Across 
    the top and the year.  Write Love, at the bottom and then they can sign their name OR you can
    write the top and love at the bottom. and have them select a sharpie and write their name.
    This all depends on the OT needs of each child.

6.  Put the canvases/papers in a frame and glue the poem above to the back of the frame!

And there you have it...the cutest Mother's Day Gift EVER!!

You can pick up inexpensive frames at Hobby Lobby, Joanne's Fabrics and the Dollar Store or many other craft stores.

No...we are not done yet!

Here is another cute idea for Mother's Day...a little harder so it might be better for older students.  I am thinking 2nd grade or above!

This is also a treasure that can be framed and kept for years to come.  The hearts are on popscicle sticks that can be removed or kept in. for a 3-D effect!

All the directions and materials can be found right here!

Here is all that is included!   

IF YOU DON'T HAVE THE TIME TO DO A CRAFT, Here is another easy peasy idea for Mother's Day!

Grab some pre-potted flowers. Have students decorate a small pot, decorate it with markers, add the potted flower and the poem included above and you are ready to celebrate Mother's Day in a flash!

Another craft idea you can create for mom, Mimi, Nana, Grandma, Aunt or whomever you want.

This can easily be mounted and turned into a card or booklet

There is also a brainstorming sheet to think of ideas to include.

f all else fails, here's the easiest one of all!
Just fill it out or have young students dictate their answers 
for the questions and an adult can scribe for them.  Easy and cute!

I have to admit...whatever you decide to create for Mother's Day, mom's will love it because it is from their child or children!

Happy Mother's Day...May this Mother's Day be the Best Ever!!!
