Homemade Mother’s Day Gifts–DIY for the kids

 I have been so busy with Teacher Appreciation gifts this past weekend that I have not done anything for Mother’s Day.  Good thing our parents are out of town so little crafts are not necessary as they probably would not mail well.

Since I will not be doing much this week I thought I would share some things I wish I could have done found around blog land.  Hoping you have a wonderful Mother’s Day and if you are a mother, you are able to get some R & R this Sunday and maybe some runny eggs and toast in bed:)

Don’t forget about these 4 Ingredient Pastries that most kids can make with a little supervision.

Similar to an idea I had for Father’s Day Movie Night a few years ago but love the idea of Smores Popcorn.

If my kids were smaller I would have loved making this:

For the wine lover mother: a Cork Monogram or Wreath

Another great use of old photos:

What would you love to give or receive this Mother’s Day?

  1. Aw- I really love the butterfly idea!! :) So sweet!

  2. Those are all so cute. I did the butterfly footprint w/my four year old last year because she loves them and we framed it and hung it in her room. It is super cute. I would love to get any of these cute thoughtful gifts!

  3. Oh my gosh, those are all so cute, but my favorite by far is the baby feet butterfly! Precious!

  4. Love this round up!

  5. I hear you on teacher appreciation and Mother’s day so close together. I love modge podge photo pots, my mom would love one with her grand babies. I am seriously doing that!
