Moms deserve to be treated well every day, but Mother’s Day is a time to really show her the love. This year, give Mom a gift that was made by hand from her favorite people—her kids! (These gifts are also great for aunts and grandparents too!) Let your kids pick their favorite from this list, grab a few supplies, and help them create a one-of-a-kind gift.
Preserve your little one’s handprint by making a sweet, personalized apron for Mom using fabric paint and heat transfer vinyl (or stencils if you’re in a pinch).
Pick up a few small succulents (faux plants work too!) and plant them in repurposed aluminum cans decorated just for Mom.
Kids can make Mom a handmade card made with buttons and add a personalized message to the front and inside.
Cut some flowers from your garden (or pick up an inexpensive bouquet from the grocery store) and create a fun flower-dyed tote for Mom.
This handprint pot is perfect for moms with a green thumb (or a love of plants). Add a photo flower for a personalized touch.
Let kids express their love for Mom through art by decorating inexpensive tea towels using fabric markers.
Surprise Mom on Mother’s Day morning by placing a few of these painted rocks in the garden or use them as paperweights to brighten up the desk in her home office.
Replace store-bought flowers with a bunch that’s handmade with love—and won’t wilt after a week. These paper lilies use just a few supplies.
Baking a special Mother’s Day treat for Mom? Make it even more special by adding a cake topper. No cake, no problem! You can use this topper on anything you’d like.
Turn your child’s handprints into a sunny reusable tote with a personalized message Mom will love.
