Flower Crafts for Kids: DIY Gifts to Celebrate Mom on Mother’s Day
Want to make your kids’ Mother’s Day extra special? Or maybe you’d like to help the little ones learn about the importance of appreciating not only their mom but other mothers in their lives?
Whichever the case, nothing quite does the trick better than the experience of crafting a thoughtful gift from scratch– floral crafts to be specific. At the very least, they get a chance to hone their creative skills, plus the activity is also perfect for family bonding time.
As you look forward to celebrating mom with thoughtful gifts on Mother’s Day, here are some DIY flower crafts that you and your kids can make to surprise and put a smile on her face.
1. A Colorful Floral Bouquet Made From Construction Paper (or Toilet Tissue)
Want to brighten up the special occasion of Mother’s Day with a homemade, colorful keepsake for mom? Make her day extra special by crafting a lovely bouquet from construction paper or easy-to-find materials like toilet tissue, alongside glue, scissors, and perhaps a scalpel.
If your kids aren’t quite old enough for scissors and glue, you can help them press out their designs using basic shapes like circles and stars, which they will find fun and perhaps discover a new hobby in. Get creative and make beautiful roses that bloom, tulips that stand straight and tall, or peonies full of curves – whatever expresses the idea best!
2. Flower Bud Vase: A Fun and Easy Craft Perfect for Small Children
Alternatively, turn the ordinary into the extraordinary by making a bud vase that’ll last forever! Kids of all ages can make their own colorful flower vases – perfect to display small blooms on Mother’s Day. This craft requires only minimal materials like empty pasta sauce jars and small scraps of felt or fabric, scissors, glue, colored pencils/markers + assorted decorations (googly eyes, etc.).
Help your kids create the perfect canvas for their designs by cleverly decorating the glass-sided jars with attractive textures such as lace, checkered print patterns, or nature-inspired illustrations done in crayons and markers.
Once complete, add some water and spread the joy with roses, or place mommy’s favorite blooms, such as Chrysanthemums, tulips, or peonies inside. The best part is that preassembled Mother’s Day flowers are incredibly easy to find these days, especially if you order them online from a trusted vendor. For the ultimate surprise, position the vase with blooms inside at some place where she’ll notice it as soon as she steps into the room.
3. Create Custom Flowery Jewelry for Mom, Stylish or Funky
When looking forward to celebrating Mother’s Day with a flower craft gift, don’t forget jewelry! It’s an amazing way to make your mom feel cared for, especially if the kids are involved.
Moreover, it can be an easy and fun project to make something truly special. For instance, you could consider creating some stylish earrings made from warm patterns of paper roses, or a funky daisy-looking necklace crafted from contrasting colors of felt.
Revamping old jewelry pieces is also an option, giving them a floral look with details like pearls as center petals glued onto the inner sides. Regardless of how the final piece looks, it will surely show your mom the thought and effort you and the kids put to come up with this amazing gift.
4. A Flower-Themed Card Customized For Mom
Would you rather put it in writing? Show your mom just how much she means to you by demonstrating your creativity and thoughtfulness in a personalized card decorated with a beautiful flowery theme.
For instance, you could use stencils and colored paper as the background for a special, memorable piece. Think origami petal cards or stamping daisy patterns! Stickers are also a fun addition that can help spice things up in all sorts of new ways.
You could even draw in some intricate designs on the base if you’ve got materials at hand – the possibilities are endless. The idea is to create something unique and memorable, adding in a heartfelt handwritten message that says nothing short of “I Love You Mommy” from the kids and yourself.
5. Tying it All Together – Creative Wrapping Ideas for Your Designs
Finally, make sure your Mother’s Day flower craft gifts are wrapped with thought and care. You could ‘go classic’ by wrapping up a bouquet in colorful or patterned paper, but you can also think outside the box and wrap it up in crafty, nature-inspired ways.
For example, tie ribbons around a vase full of flowers, or use dried moss to make professional-looking cases for necklaces and earrings.
In a nutshell, there’s no limit to how creative you can be as far as kid-friendly craft gifts for Mother’s Day are concerned. Just remember that Mom will appreciate all your hard work, especially the effort it took to mobilize and get the kids involved in making her feel extra appreciated.
