Mother's Day Crafts

Mother's Day is coming up this Sunday. Here is a list of a few different craft projects I found online that would be fun for kids to make and give to their moms for Mother's Day. Certainly more precious a gift than anything store bought and it also is a great way to entertain the kids.

Flower Door Stop: This is an interesting craft using a coffee can and involves making fake flowers. If you have flowers in your backyard or somewhere else nearby you can pick them from, then that would be another option and potentially add to the time (and fun!) of making this gift. You could also try out these Coffee Filter Flowers as a fake flower alternative or to add variety to the bouquet.

Bouquet of Photo Flowers: Make these and put in a vase you already have or perhaps combine this craft with the Door Stop one above. If you go the route of using a vase you already have, then perhaps you can let the kid(s) decorate it with paints. Or you can try this Laundry Bottle Vase craft.

Home Sweet Home Photo Gallery: This is a cute craft involving making a house shaped diorama and adding photos in the house windows.
