Mother’s Day DIY Gifts

Mother’s Day is this weekend and we all love our Moms so why not make them a little something special to remind them how much we love them. So Moms look away, Dads, kids, grandparents, and spouses pay attention!

Mom Secret Stash: All Moms have a favorite snack, and by favorite we mean they do not like to share it with ANYONE. For me its chocolate. After a long day of “mommying” it up I want to hide with a small sweet morsel and unwind. However, it can be hard to keep those sweets out of my little ones hands. So this year why not make Mom a little secret stash of all of her favorites. It is a sweet idea with not a lot or hard work. Trust me, Mom will appreciate it.

365 Reasons We Love Mom: This fun little idea is actually available at Big DIY Ideas.┬áIt is so simple, it is not expensive, does not require a great crafting ability, and all of the kids can help, even the littlest ones. It is a gift that Mom will cherish forever. Moms love those sappy mother’s day gifts, and what is sappier than a jar full of all the reasons why we love her?

DIY Succulent Rock Garden: I LOVE succulents. I Love plants. But, I have a black thumb. My kids know this, and have started to buy me only succulents, but I have even on occasion killed the succulents. This adorable little succulent would survive even at my house! It is made form rocks. Your kids can design and paint their very own succulents and design you the prettiest flower pot ever. Best part? It never needs to be watered!

Are you looking for a great craft for kids to make this Mother’s Day? This fun little crafts will make an excellent gift for mom, auntie, or grandma this mother’s day. Mom’s love gifts from the heart and crafts make the perfect gift full of love. My mother still pulls out all of our old crafts and displays them during the holidays. She tells each of the grandkids which items their parents made and how old they were. It is one of her favorite parts of being a grandma, sharing her favorite pieces of the past with their next generation. That is why I love to find new and adorable items to help the grandkids make to add to her collection. This year I found an adorable snail craft. I cannot wait for the kids to gift it to her on Mother’s Day.

The part I loved the most about this sweet craft? The CD we use to build it. My kids were so worried I was ruining a Bluray. Don’t worry, I didn’t. I still have tons of old cd’s that used to come in the mail as promos for internet companies. Yes I know, I just dated myself. Remember when AOL used to send discs to offer free trial runs? Oh, the days of yore! If you’re like me and never throw anything away that could be used in arts and crafts then I bet you have plenty hanging around for this fun craft. So break them out and get crafty! Happy Mother’s Day!
