Nothing says âI Love Youâ? to a mom quite like a handmade gift.Â Momâs donât need expensive jewelry or shopping sprees (although we wonât say âNoâ? to those either).
A simple, thoughtful handmade gift from our babies (even our big babies) is something a mom can hold onto forever and look back on many years down the road. As the mother of an energetic 4 year old, the thought of him sitting and taking time to make something special for me truly warms my heart.
The NGCC Motherâs Day Pinterest Board is full of great Motherâs Day crafts.Â We have pinned lots of great homemade gifts from the heart to say âI LOVE YOUâ? to a mom or Grandma on their special day.
1 âÂ Â I Love Mom Because
This is a fun craft for older children to practice their writing skills while expressing to mom why she is so special.Â Ask a younger child some reasons why they love mom and write the answers for them on their handprints as an easy adaption for a non-writer.
2 âÂ HandprintÂ Canvas bag
We all know moms are in charge of 100 things at once! What a great way for mom to display a lovely gift while running errands. This canvas bag is prefect for returning books to the library; bring snacks to Saturday morning practices or running to grab a few items at the grocery store.
This third project is an easy but heartfelt way to acknowledge a Grandmother this Motherâs Day.Â This is a project that children of all ages could participate in and it is a Motherâs Day gift that would definitely melt Grandmaâs heart.
Next Generation Childrenâs Center wishes every mom the happiest of Motherâs Day!
