Easy Crafts for Mothers Day Gifts

2016 May 04
by Karin Delaney


On this special day we honor motherhood, show our appreciation, celebrate our love for moms and mother figures (including grandmothers, stepmothers, foster mothers), and say thank you for all they do for us. 

Adult children usually give gifts, cards, flowers, or candy. Some take their mom out for a family dinner in a restaurant or engage in another special activity that is especially pleasing to her.

Young children like to make their own gifts and cards, and those special keepsakes are very touching to loved ones.

Here are five, easy to make, Mother Day crafts your child might like to make.
