Mother’s Day is fast approaching so it is a good idea to start thinking of gift ideas. Often the best gifts are homemade and moms will treasure them for years to come. Kids of all ages can make their own gifts for mom. Dads, childcare providers, and other family members can help children of all ages make gifts for mom.

Footprints and Handprint Crafts

Adults and even older siblings can help babies use their foot prints and handprints to make treasure gifts for mom. Perhaps you could pick up an unpainted porcelain tray or hanging ornament and use the baby’s footprints to make a heart or other fun design. This can make a great Mother’s Day gift that will last a lifetime!

Recipe Box

If mom like to cook and bake consider making a recipe box with the kids. You could use a wooden box from a craft store and use wallpaper, fabric, or decorate it with paint and drawings. Older children could write their own recipes on cards to include in the box.

Mini Photo Decorations

Most craft stores will have fun photo decorations. The child could choose a wooden stand or hanging ornament with space for a photo and decorate it with paint, stickers, glitter, and other fun crafts. Once the item has been decorated just slide in a photo of the child and the gift is ready to go. Some craft stores have mini wooden flower pots that hold small photos.

Trinket Box

Kids can decorate a small wooden or cardboard box from a craft store for mom to put trinkets in. Let them get creative and use a variety of craft supplies including paint, glitter, stickers, stamps, and more.

Wrapping Paper Bouquet

If a child picks wild flowers for their mom they can use wrapping paper to create a pretty bouquet. Use a ribbon to tie around the bouquet to keep everything in place. You could also use store bought flowers to create a wrapping paper bouquet.

Stamped Tea Towels

Children can use their creativity to make custom tea towels for mom. Use lemons or limes as stamps and paint to make fun designs on the tea towels.


Baked goods and other fun treats are always great homemade Mother’s Day gifts. Try making chocolate covered strawberries or pretzels. There are many fun kid-friendly recipes to try.
