Last minute Mothers Day gifts homemade by kids
So its Mothers Day this Sunday in the UK , if you havent had time/not managed to find anything or just want to make something homemade, here are a few last minute ideas for Mothers Day.
I really like this idea as it uses a simple cardboard box, that you could even get from the recycling! Plus its made personal by your little ones and like it says in the post im sure it will make you smile every time you look at it.
These flowers are your personal photos and then cupcake cases, definitely something that can be made up simply in the house.
Just a little bit of paint, card and your little ones fingers, what more could you want for a last minute,inexpensive gift? A personal poem can be added and printed as well if needed.
You can use Oven gloves you already have in the house, or you can purchase these quite cheaply in supermarkets, this adds a personal touch so whenever mum uses them she will be reminded of the hands of her little troubles 🙂 Use your little ones hands and some fabric paint (remember to follow the instructions for the fabric paint on the bottle).
Another handprint idea, but you know i love these! 🙂 using fabric paint and some hands and magic! you have an inexpensive personal gift. You can even use a cotton apron that you already have.
Mothers Day Food your Kids Can Make
Here is another Mothers day post but this time some ideas for food. Some of these your little ones might need more help (hint hint dad!) but they might be fine if they are a little older though.

Crafts for Dad
Its Mothers Day in the UK this Sunday, there is nothing more meaningful than receiving something that is made from the heart. It might look a bit messy, it might not look like what its meant to but knowing that its from your little one im sure means the world.
So i thought of getting some ideas together of crafts for dad to do with the kids in surprise ready for mum to open on Sunday.
What do you think? Id be over the moon to receive any of these gifts and knowing my little one and her dad had taken the time to do them together would make them even more special.
I love how simple this is to make, follow the instructions on the fabric paint bottle and thats its! A great memento to keep, you dont have to do a bed pillow for this you could also do cushions or how about a memory blanket with all your kids handprints or potential future kids 🙂
Craft supplies you will need:
Fabric signature marker
Pour a small amount of paint onto the plastic plates.
Have the children paint one of their hands and then press their hand print on the front of the pillowcase.
Repeat the process till the pillowcase is full of hand prints.
Once done, add the names to each hand print with a fabric signature marker.
see more here.
Children can try making this pretty coffee filter rose for Valentine’s Day or Mother’s Day – it’s so pretty, who wouldn’t be happy to receive it!
You will need:
3 coffee filter papers
Green chenille stem
Water down the paint (approx 4 parts water to one paint). Paint the filter papers. Let dry (you can speed things up by drying out in the oven on a very low heat for a few minutes).
Trim two of the filter papers so you have three different sizes. See photo below.
Fit the smaller two papers inside the largest. Open out into a cone shape and twist the bottom to form a point. Wrap the chenille stem around this to hold the papers together. Leave the other end of the chenille stem loose to be the flower stem.
Wooden Handprint Slices
I love how simple this would be, you can use it as a card and write on the back.
Another handprint craft, im starting to think i have an obsession with hand and foot prints! i think its envy on how everyone can get such good pictures i definitely need more practice!
Keep an eye out for more Mothers Day craft ideas over the next few days.
