DIY Mother’s Day Gifts Kids Can Make with Cherished Cherubs

Written by Lisa

Mother's Day is the perfect opportunity to show mum how much she means to us. While store-bought gifts are certainly convenient, there's something truly special about a handmade present crafted with love by her little ones.

At Cherished Cherubs in Perth, we believe that engaging children in making their own gifts not only sparks their creativity but also adds a personal touch that mums will undoubtedly cherish. Here are some fun and simple DIY gift ideas that kids can make this Mother’s Day.

1. Personalised Photo Frames

A personalised photo frame is a wonderful way for mum to display cherished memories. Here’s how kids can make one:

  • Materials Needed: Plain wooden frame, paint, brushes, stickers, and a favourite photo.
  • Instructions: Let the children paint the frame in mum’s favourite colour. Once dry, they can decorate it with stickers or draw designs with markers. Insert a favourite family photo, and it’s ready to gift!

2. Hand-Painted Mugs

Every mum loves a good cuppa. A hand-painted mug can be a perfect gift, especially when it comes from her little one.

  • Materials Needed: Plain ceramic mug, porcelain paint, and brushes.
  • Instructions: Wash and dry the mug thoroughly. Using porcelain paint, let the kids unleash their creativity on the mug. Once the painting is done, follow the paint manufacturer’s instructions to bake the mug in the oven to set the paint. Now, it’s ready for use!

3. Homemade Candles

Candles can create a soothing atmosphere, perfect for mum to relax. Making one at home is easier than you might think.

  • Materials Needed: Soy wax flakes, wicks, old crayons for colour, essential oils for fragrance, and a small glass jar.
  • Instructions: Melt the soy wax in a double boiler and let the kids choose a colour by adding crayon pieces. Once melted, add a few drops of essential oil. Place the wick in the jar, pour in the melted wax, and make sure the wick stays centred. Let it set and cool completely.

4. Handmade Cards

A heartfelt message in a handmade card is a sure way to make mum smile.

  • Materials Needed: Cardstock, coloured pencils, markers, stickers, and any other decorative items.
  • Instructions: Fold the cardstock to create the base of the card. Let the kids draw, write messages, and decorate the card to their heart’s content.

5. Beaded Jewellery

Beaded bracelets or necklaces can be a stylish and sweet gift for mum.

  • Materials Needed: Elastic string, a variety of beads, and clasps.
  • Instructions: Let the children string their chosen beads onto the elastic string. Measure the length to fit mum’s wrist or neck, then securely fasten the clasps.

Creating these gifts with the help of a Cherished Cherubs babysitter not only gives your kids a fun activity to focus on but also helps them create something unique and special for Mother’s Day. These projects allow children to express their love and gratitude in a creative way, making this Mother’s Day one to remember for all the right reasons. Plus, mum gets a keepsake that she can treasure forever. Happy crafting!
