Mother’s Day is coming up, and it’s time to take a day to appreciate the women in your lives and what they have done for you. With older kids, Mother’s Day gifts are easier because they can use their own money to purchase gifts or think of ideas on their own. With younger kids, it is sometimes harder for them to make a gift for Mom without help. Here are the best DIY Mother’s Day gifts from kids!
This is one of the easiest DIY Mother’s Day gifts to do for Mom, without breaking the bank. Allow little kids to help by letting them stir eggs, pick out donut flavors or put the food on the plate. Be sure to give them tasks that are age appropriate (i.e., don’t let your four year old cut up fruit), but be sure to let them help.
If you’ve already done breakfast in bed one to many times, here are some additional Mother’s Day celebration ideas.
These are the best for younger kids that might not have the ability to do some of the more advanced crafts. A handwritten card is great and something Mom will be sure to appreciate. Compile colored paper, markers and even stickers to make this card super cute and meaningful.

If your child cannot write yet, ask them what they would like to say in the card and write it for them. However, if they know how to write, but not spell, have them write it, but tell them how to spell what they want to say. Mom will be sure to appreciate a card even more when the card has been handwritten.
If your child’s mom is into cooking at all, try out this fun DIY. Get a plain potholder from the store and use colored paint to stamp your child’s handprint onto the potholder. Use paint or fabric markers to write either “Happy Mother’s Day!” or “Love, (insert your child’s name)”. Definitely include the year as well so as this gift continually is used you remember when the child gifted it. It is a super easy DIY but will be something that will stay in the kitchen for years to come.
If your child is more mature, or is very into arts and crafts this is the perfect DIY. Grab a blank deck of cards and have your child compile a list of 52 things they love about their mother. Use the two Joker cards as the front and back binding of the book. On each card use Sharpie to write one thing that your child loves about mother. If they wish, they can include a fun drawing that corresponds what they wrote down!
This works for children of any age, but it may get a bit messy! Use white paper and colored paint to place your handprint on in the shape of flowers. Use paint or markers to draw the vase and the stems/leaves for the flowers. Include a brief note saying “Happy Mother’s Day” and especially the year that this was gifted.
