Mother’s Day Crafts for Young Children

There is nothing a mother appreciates more than a gift made from love. Here are 5 craft ideas that even little kids can master (with some help from dad or an older sibling.)

 

Sunflower Pin Cushion Craft

This cute and useful pincushion is the perfect gift for a mom who loves to sew.

 

What you need:
A small ceramic flower pot (or recycled yogurt container)
Green acrylic paint
Green, yellow and black felt
Glue gun
Rubber band
Styrofoam ball to just fit top of pot/container

 

Appropriate age: 6 years+

 

What you do:

Paint the pot green and set aside to dry. Then, cut out a piece of black felt large enough to cover the Styrofoam ball. Using craft glue, affix felt to top half of the ball. Tie the rubber band around the ball’s circumference, leaving the bottom half unglued.

 

Cut out flower petals from the yellow felt and glue just inside the lip of the pot. Then glue the ball onto the top of the pot. Voila!

Bath Salts

More than anything else on Mother’s Day, your mom probably wants a little R&R. Bath salts are the perfect solution – as long as you make sure to clear an hour for her soak in the tub, too! This recipe is easy to make with ingredients you probably already have at home.
