Mother's Day Crafts

Mother’s Day is fast approaching, this year it’s Sunday, May 10th.  If you usually take mom out for brunch, lunch, or dinner I doubt it’s going to be the same this year.  Most of us are still quarantined, whether self imposed or mandated.  But really with the COVID-19 virus still running rampant and without a cure or vaccine in sight do you really want to risk mom’s health, and yours, by dining out?

So instead of going out how about giving mom a gift instead? And what better gift to give mom than something made lovingly for her. Here are some really unique ideas that kids can make with just a bit of help from dad, aunties, or older siblings.  Moms can make them too for grandmas, friends, and aunties!

And if  you’re like me and don’t really want to go out to shop for supplies there are some ideas here that you won’t need to.  I’m sure you have some of the supplies right at home, you’ve probably been using them to keep the kids occupied these last couple of months in quarantine.  If not, then just get creative and improvise! So go ahead, have fun and get the whole family involved!

This is one of my favorite gifts, my grandson Devon made it for me a few years ago.

His mom, my daughter, helped him make the hand print tree and write the poem.  She then had it framed and Devon presented it to me on Mother’s Day.  It proudly hangs in our family room.
 Mother's Day CraftsHere’s the poem, feel free to use it for your projects.

I love this idea of taking a picture in a frame, my daughter did this with her kids last fall!

This pic was done by Moose Photography, professional photographers and posted by Cool Mom Picks  But you can DIY it!
You’ll need the same frame in 3-4 sizes depending on how many generations you want to include.  Take a photo of the smallest member, the baby, frame that.  Take a photo of the next, mom, holding the framed picture of the baby, frame that.
Continue with each generation, grandma, great-grandma, etc.
Be sure the pictures are all taken using the same background.

 

Mother's Day CraftsThis is too cute!

This idea came from Tips from a Typical Mom.
Just take photos of your child in 5 different poses, each pose holding a letter to spell “Mommy”.  Mat and from the photos.  Easy peasy!  Great gift for Moms and Grandmas!
