Mother's Day DIY Gifts for Kids

4 Kid-friendly DIY Mother’s Day Gifts

Mother’s Day is almost here, and nothing says “I love you” like a one-of-a-kind, DIY gift the whole family can get involved in. Before you run to the tried-and-true jewelry store with DIY-phobia, take a look at these fresh ideas. They’re doable — promise — and are sure to make her feel all warm and gooey inside. (Brownie points for you, Dad!)

1. Mother’s Day Gift Jar by Better Homes and Gardens

Let Mom know how much she’s loved with this simple and sweet DIY using a glass jar and colorful strips of paper. This gift is personal and appropriate for all ages. If your child can’t yet write, create the strips on their behalf using their own words.

2. Finger Print Memory Art by Small Fry

Many finger and hand print projects are cute for a few weeks. And then, like many kids’ projects, they accumulate in memory boxes. What we love about this one is that it’s a great art piece that can proudly adorn a wall or console table for years. It takes a little effort from Dad to take just the right photo, but the outcome is well worth the effort. If you don’t have Photoshop skills to add the balloon ribbons, try sketching them with a thin permanent pen.

3. Time to Create Box by Making It Lovely

If Mom has a creative spirit, this fun gift box will give her an excuse to spend an afternoon flexing some creative muscle. Kids can have fun selecting fun craft supplies to fill the box, and putting it together is a breeze! Tip: Try to stick to one color scheme so the kit is cohesive and project-friendly.

4. Breakfast in Bed

Breakfast in bed may seem overdone… but that’s because it’s always a wonderful treat. Get up early — before Mom — and have the kids help you make something special. There are plenty of mouthwatering recipe ideas on the Internet, including these on Spoonful to cue your hunger. It’s all about the details; On her tray, include flowers, a card from the kids or perhaps her favorite latte from Starbucks. And be sure to clean up the mess! This is her day — she shouldn’t have to fret about dirty dishes.

Everywhere you look there are different fits — from relaxed to bootcut to straight to slim to skinny, jeans are designed to look this way and feel that way.
