Homemade Mother’s Day Gifts
I always loved handmade Mother’s Day gifts from my children. Even though my kids are adults now, I still have some of those priceless gifts in my memory box. And I still use a bookmark that my middle son loving made for me 25 years ago. We mums are sappy like that!
I know that moms always appreciate store bought stuff that their partners and spouses arrange. After all no one is going to complain about a bouquet of fresh flowers or a box of chocolate. Am I right?
But those crooked handmade gifts that our kids excitedly gift us on our special day? Those are the things that end up being kept in our memory boxes. Most younger kids adore their mothers and love to take the time to craft something special for them. The expression on their faces as they give their special presents.
A Simple Mother’s Day Flower Craft for Kids
Today I’m sharing a simple Mother’s Day flower craft that kids can make themselves. My boys made me a set of these one year.
Simple craft supplies such as craft foam, skewers, and a few pictures make this sweet Mothers Day bouquet that will last for years. Mine did!
Kids of all ages will love this craft. Younger kids can make them with just a little help. Older kids will find it easy peasy. I made this craft with a children’s groups, so I know that it works for larger groups as the preparation is minimal. Kids loved choosing the right colored hearts and setting everything up for their moms.
Each child can make a separate bouquet of heart flowers if they want. My three kids decided to make one between them, so I got one lovely bouquet of love from the three of them.
