Here are some of our favourite kids DIY Mothers Day gift ideas below. We’d love to see pictures of your completed work if you would care to share them on our Facebook page!
Don’t Forget Grandma on Mother’s Day
Four generations of mothers and mothers-to-be in a photo for Grandma on Mother’s Day. What a great idea by Moose Photography. All you need is a camera and a frame. Take a photo of your granddaughter holding the frame. Print out the picture and put inside the frame, then have a photo of your daughter holding the framed picture. Print and put the new photo inside the frame. Then have one taken of yourself holding it. Print out, put inside frame, then give to grandma to have another photo taken of her holding all three generations. Confusing? Just look at the picture below and you will get the gist.
Vintage Tea Cup Candles
A fun craft for older kids to try. You can purchase candle making kits from most art and craft shops (or online) and spend fun Saturday looking for the perfect tea cup in a local op shop. Detailed instructions and video tutorial can be found on this website.
Finger Print Pendant
A simple, special Mothers Day DIY gift idea for kids. All you need is some white air dry or oven bake clay from an art supply shop and your child’s fingerprint to make a pendant necklace for mum to cherish. Instructions on how to make can be found on this website.
Cute Mother’s Day Card Alternative
This idea on Pinterest is cute and simple to make. A wooden peg, glue, paper and pens is all you need to write a secret message to mum for Mother’s Day. Cut out a little rectangle square of paper, fold the middle inside the end of the peg clip and then fold the outer layers onto the top (then glue to secure). You can always trim around the paper to have it fit exactly to the shape of the peg once glued. Using a marker pen, draw the outline of an envelope, then open the peg and carefully write your message inside (or you can do this first before attaching to peg). Cute.
Love Heart Fried Egg
So the website I found this on is in Spanish…but the concept shown in the photograph looks straightforward enough to follow! You will need an egg ring and a love heart shaped metal cookie cutter to create this Mother’s Day breakfast with love. Spray your frying pan with oil, get it to a medium heat, then separate your egg yolk from your egg white. Pour the egg yolk slowly into the heart so that it doesn’t leak out from underneath the heart. Once it starts to set, remove the cookie cutter and crack the egg white into the surrounding space of the egg ring. Getting the temperature right so the yolk doesn’t leak out will be key to making this fabulous Mothers Day DIY idea work!
So there you have it – cute Mothers Day DIY for kids to make mum this Sunday 8th May. And don’t forget the flowers!
