Easy Mother’s Day Crafts for Kids

Since moving to the mountains, my favorite crafting stores are no longer just a short drive away. 

Not only are we further away from everything, but a lot of stores are temporarily closed.

To make things work, my youngest and I took a trip to the nearest general store to find things to use for our easy Mother’s Day crafts. 

We wanted to do a combination of DIY gifts for Mom, and simple crafts Mom will cherish forever.

Below are easy Mother’s Day crafts for kids that you, too, will enjoy making!

1.  Tickled Pink Gifts for Mom

This pink themed basket was such a fun gift to put together! 

Once we decided on the pink basket, we were on a mission to find everything pink that a mom would want. 

A Tickled Pink basket could easily overflow with pink gifts for mom.

Because we are on a budget, I told my daughter to pick 5 items that she would want to give me for Mother’s Day. 

She picked out pink flip flops, EOS lip gloss, pink nail polish, a pink mason jar cup, and a small pink that smells wonderful! 

I even let her pick out the tissue paper to fill the basket with, and she picked out the cutest pink polkadot tissue paper. 

When checking out, she grabbed the sweetest little balloon to add to the gift basket for Mom.

Our basket was simple, and I love it.  If you’re looking for ideas on what to put in a Tickled Pink Basket, below is a list of things that are pink.

5.   Mother’s Day Handprint Poem

This easy Mother’s Day craft will be cherished for years to come, and it costs just a couple dollars. 

After reading the Mother’s Day poem for kids, it was time to start painting. 

I simply used the brushed one of the colors onto the palm of her hand using the paint brush. 

Then, carefully put her hand into the open space to leave a hand print.

Help kids create a booklet of love coupons filled with promises of hugs, chores, and acts of kindness.

Provide them with pre-cut pieces of paper or let them design their own coupons using colored markers and stickers.

Encourage them to think of thoughtful gestures that Mom would appreciate, such as “One Free Hug,” “Breakfast in Bed,” or “Movie Night of Your Choice.”

Mom can redeem these coupons whenever she pleases, making it a gift that keeps on giving.
