Easy DIY Mother’s Day Crafts Kids Can Do

I remember making things for my friends and family when I was a kid and being able to put something together from scratch really made the gift more personal and sentimental. What’s better to gift moms this Mother’s Day than something that was hand-made by their precious little ones? Here are some fun, creative, and easy DIY ideas toddlers can make, with the help of an extra pair of hands of course (caregiver or parent), to celebrate this special Mother’s Day!

Mother’s Day Dyed Carnations

Little Passports

Supplies:

White carnations
Food coloring
Vases or clear cups
Water
Sharp knife or scissors (adult use only!)

Instructions

  1. Add 10 drops of the toddler’s choice of food coloring into a small clear vase.
  2. Fill 2/3 of the cup or vase up with water. Add more drop if a darker color is desired or mix it up and create different colors!
  3. Have the adult cut each stem of the carnations at an angle and place it in the vase/cup.
  4. Let the kids enjoy as they slowly wait and see the color of the flower change!

 

Hand and Foot Print Apron

Little Page Turners

Supplies:

White Apron
Non-toxic paint
Paper plates
Markers
Baby wipes or cloth for cleanup

Instructions

  1. Set the Apron on a floor. Ensure the apron is on a flat surface.
  2. Pour the paint out on paper plates, one color on each plate.
  3. Have the kids dip their palms or foot into the paint.
  4. To make butterflies, have the kids stamp their opposite foot for each side. The left footprint will be on the right, and the right footprint will be stamped on the left.
  5. Handprints can be made into bumblebees and flowers.
  6. Fill in the details with a black marker after the paint dries. Let the kids fill up the apron with other drawings like grass, trees, sun, clouds, or rainbows!
