Make Mother’s Day simple: 3 Quick and creative crafts!
Make Mother’s Day simple this year with these three, quick and easy creative crafts perfect for early years settings or at home! You will need… not a lot, actually! Although we love a good how-to, step-by-step craft, we recognise that there is not always time to get everything together and start from scratch, so we’ve picked out some of our favourite products to help you make quick crafts with the little ones. They’re fun, easy, and still allow the children to get creative. We’ve put together a list below of resources that will help you!
Things you could use:
- Coloured Pencils
- Paint Sticks
- Colour Marker Pens
- Ready Mix Paint
- Chubby Paint Brushes
- Tissue Paper
- Heart and Bug Foam Shapes
Mother’s Day Cards
Allow the children to write a personalised message to Mum with these Greetings Cards. On A4 folded high-quality paper, they’re perfect for providing a bit of structure whilst allowing the freedom to be creative. The cards have a Mother’s Day themed frame around them, with a blank canvas in the middle – so the children can draw, write, colour, paint or stick anything they want there! The size of the cards allows the children enough room to be creative and get messy.
These beautiful Heart Frames come in packs of 10 and make the perfect Mother’s Day gift. Already in a frame shape, the children will only need to decorate them how they wish! They also have string attached so that they can be hung on doors, plants or the fridge at home. The children can then place photos of themselves, or of their Mum inside the frame to add a nice touch. If you don’t have enough time, just slot a piece of card inside and they can write a message or draw a pattern.
Flowers for Mum
Send the little ones home with this thoughtful Mother’s Day gift of a Wooden Flower Pot Frame. Allow them to be creative and decorate their flowers how they think Mum would like them, before adding a photo in the frame. They can use pens, paint, crayons, paint, tissue paper and more to make their Flower Pot look unique and creative.
