Art Ideas: Mother's Day Crafts
We love Mother’s Day. The flowers, the tea and breakfast in bed and of course all the fun crafts we can do with the kids. We’ve come across some great activities we know you will be desperate to try this Mothering Sunday.
These amazing Butterfly Window Decorations come from Emma at The Mini Mes and Me. We love this as your kids can be as free and creative as they want! The use of cellophane means that it's really simple to hang the finished butterfly from the window for some awesome colours when the sun comes out!
Our next idea is from Laura at Little Stuff. She found these amazing magnetic polaroid frame and we adore them! Perfect for Mother’s Day, fill the frames with pictures, drawings and memories - and there can be a little message on each frame! You can read more from Laura’s blog here.
Do you and your little ones have green fingers? Well, this next activity will be right up your street. Courtesy of Cathy from NurtureStore, this is a great idea to decorate any old pots you have lying around the house.
So what should you put in your newly decorated pot? Flowers of course! Christine from Thinly Spread has written a blog on how to create these amazing paper hyacinths. These are a fun alternative to live flowers - and they last a lot longer!
Let’s face it - Mother’s Day is all about the flowers, but Cerys from Rainy Day Mum has a really amazing, creative alternative. What about a cork printed flower tote bag? This is really simple to make and looks brilliant.
Now that the nights are getting lighter, we all have more time to sit outside with friends and family, but the fun doesn’t have to stop when the night does come. Emma from My Little 3 and Me shows us these great tin can lanterns look great and are really simple to make!
Are your kids more artsy than craftsy? Then we have two amazing projects to show you! The first comes from Anna at The Imagination Tree. These stuffed heart collage cards are beautiful and not just for Mother’s Day. Hang them on the wall or create pocket sized ones and carry them everywhere.
Our next project is perfect for the future artists out there. These Van Gogh mini masterpieces look so much fun to make. Lina from Cookies and Cwtches, we thank you for showing us these!
Maybe you are looking for a few different ideas for the perfect Mother’s Day crafts? Jen from Mum In The Madhouse and Maggy from Red Ted Art have come up with these list of amazing crafts for you and your kids this Mother’s Day.
We love these arts and craft ideas and hopefully you will have an amazing day making them. Whatever you are doing this sunday… Happy Mother’s Day!
