1. Love Heart Card 

Creating a personalised love heart card is one of the best presents around. All you need is some paper, pencils and scissors and you’re set. Simply fold an A4 piece of paper in half and on one side, draw half a love heart. Using scissors follow the outline you drew and cut the shape out gently. Once completed, open up the cut out to see your heart shaped card! Add on some drawings and a note inside for that extra finishing touch.

2. Handprint Flower Bouquet

A handprint flower bouquet is a popular kid's craft activity . This idea is a great way to have fun and get messy with your kids, whilst making something that is completely adorable. For this activity, simply select a range of paints and mix a combination of colours onto a palette or plastic plate, then using a brush,  paint the colours gently onto your child's hand.

Stamp their hand down directly onto a clean piece of paper. Create a few variations of ‘hand stamps’ at different heights then leave the artwork out to dry. Once dried, paint on some stems to connect the ‘hand stamps’ and turn them into a beautiful flower bouquet. You can add on some leaves, love hearts, a bow, glitter or stickers to finsh off the artwork.

3. Pasta Flower Bouquet

If you’re wanting to do something less messy with your kids, try creating a flower bouquet using coloured pasta instead of paint. It’s a straightforward and easy to do activity that everyone will enjoy. To do this activity, start with getting your kids to draw on a vase and stems for the flowers using colouring pencils or markers.  Then using craft glue, stick a variety of coloured pasta above the vase to create the flower bouquet.

Write a short and sweet message on the side, or frame the artwork to create a long-lasting masterpiece. This is a fun and creative way to make a Mother’s Day artwork using items from around the home.
