With Mother’s Day just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about what your little one could make for Mom. If you’re in need of some ideas to get your creative juices flowing, the child care team at Austin Kids Retreat has you covered.

Here are seven fun Mother’s Day crafts, as referenced from Country Living:

Popsicle Stick Picture Frame

Who says you need to buy an expensive frame to display your child’s favorite picture of them and Mom? This craft allows your son or daughter to get creative while decorating a one-of-a-kind popsicle stick frame. The possibilities are endless with this one!

Painted Pasta Necklace

One of the more tried and true crafts for this holiday, a Painted Pasta Necklace is sure to be Mom’s new favorite piece of jewelry. This activity is fun for kids of all ages.

Thumbprint Coffee Mug

Mom will certainly appreciate a Mother’s Day gift she can use every day. If she loves coffee, give some thought to the Thumbprint Coffee Mug. Your child can decorate it however they want and, when they’re done, Mom has a fun new mug she can enjoy both at home and in the office.

Rainbow Heart Wreath

You can’t beat a heart-shaped wreath fitted with a fun pom-pom for Mother’s Day. This is something Mom can display and cherish for years to come!

Printable Mother’s Day Book

This book allows you to choose 10 prompts for your child to fill out. Your little one will finish sentences such as “My mom makes me feel…” and others. Once they’re done with that part, have them illustrate the book with drawings wherever they see fit. When the two of you are ready to give the book to Mom on the big day, be sure to have lots of Kleenex ready!

Paper Scraps Greeting Card

There’s no question that homemade cards remain a staple on Mother’s Day. This year, though, why not have your child use more than just markers or crayons? Let them tap into their creativity by getting out old pieces of scrapbook paper, card stock, and wrapping paper.

Floral Herb Perfume

Don’t want to spend an arm and a leg on perfume that you’re not even sure Mom will like? Even though this “perfume” might last just a few days, your child will absolutely love working on this craft. Be sure to include water, essential oils, as well as assorted herbs and flowers.
