Make Mother’s Day simple: Quick and creative crafts!

5 Feb 2021 | Inspirational Activity Ideas, Nursery and Early Years

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:

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.

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.

That’s not all…Our Classmates range is perfect for art & craft activities like this one. We have a full range of supplies at the lowest market prices, so shop here for everything you need.

When looking at Maths, it can be linked with natural resources in a way that is reflective of a forest school approach, but can also always be done on a smaller scale with a play table or play tray. When in nature we can gather leaves or twigs to count and compare. Indoors, we may have resources to hand that we can count, add, subtract and compare, or bring home the leaves and twigs from your woodland adventures.
