As a Mother, my favourite Mother’s Day treats are homemade cards and crafts, the love that goes into producing them means more than any shop bought offering. I thought I would compile some homemade inspiration for all you Dads out there.
One of my favourite gifts was this canvas that Dougie and the kids made in 2014. We hadn’t planned on adding Florence and she wasn’t keen on complying so her input is not a work of art! I however love this simple canvas, and easy for Dads to produce with controlled mess!
Here is another simple canvas idea. Using finger-painting you can create a simple canvas keepsake.
Here are some simple yet perfect crafts that tweens can manage to make independently. In this post we make a cacti hand card a tulip card and two very effective tea light holders. Click here to see the instructions to making these tween Mother’s day crafts.
Other ideas I have made with childminding children include painting with the heart of celery to make flowers, decorating plant pots and baking yummy treats. Here are a few crafts from my Pinterest board. I particularly like the Washi tapes on a glass jar for a candle, or decorating jars for flowers, all of which are perfect for my tweens to craft independently.
