Mother’s Day is just around the corner. If you know a mum who deserves to be spoiled rotten on her special day, why not give the kids a hand and help create something extra lovely this year? Mums love photographs of their babies, so we’ve put together some fun and simple craft ideas you can make together, featuring the gorgeous little faces of the people who make her a mummy.
Our crafts are perfect for kids, with just a little help from dads, grandparents, aunties or uncles. If you’re a mum yourself, family pictures featuring the grandchildren make great Mother’s Day presents for proud Grandmas too!
Stay On The Right Page
For the literary-loving ladies, a bookmark is a thoughtful gift she’ll enjoy using every day. All you need is print of a favourite picture, glued onto card in a complimentary colour. Add a string of beads, carefully threaded by little fingers, and you’ve got a sweet, inexpensive present that’s sure to get you into her good books.
The Icing On The Cake
A Mother’s Day tea party is a lovely way to celebrate with mothers and grandmothers alike. Get the kids involved with the baking and create a pretty table setting to make the day feel really special. And for an extra spoonful of sweetness, why not create your own cupcake toppers? We used the CEWE Design Software to create the images topping these treats, and ordered the prints as Photo Stickers. Simply trim your sticker down to size, and stick it neatly to a circle of card and a toothpick for a Mother’s Day treat that takes the cake.
Wow Her With Flowers
Don’t settle for an impersonal, store-bought card when you can create a one-of-a kind, heartfelt Greeting Card featuring a beloved memory instead. For extra impact, glue a length of colourful ribbon to the card and tie in a couple of pretty Mother’s Day flowers. Once the flowers are removed, just tie the ribbon into a pretty accent bow. Gorgeous!
Think Outside The Box
For a Mother’s Day craft that’s simple and fun for little fingers, make your own gift box with a humble egg carton. Simply paint, add a sweet print and let their creativity run wild with ribbons, sequins and any embellishments you like. The sections of the egg box are just the right size for bath melts wrapped in tissue paper, making this a lovely gift for any mum who deserves pampering.
Hit The Books
Like creating a scrapbook, without the mess, a CEWE PHOTOBOOK makes a lovely Mother’s Day gift that’s sure to become her favourite book on the shelf. We love the idea of getting the kids involved; let them choose their own favourite photographs, come up with their own text and decorate with fun clip-art options. It’s a one-of-a-kind Mother’s Day gift you can work on together, and present with pride.
