Mother’s Day Crafts

I don’t know about you but my favourite Mother’s Day gifts are always the homemade ones. I love all the hard work the kids put in and their sense of pride when they present me with their lovingly made gifts. A homemade gift is always completely unique so no-one else will ever have one the same as you. If it has their hand or footprints on that’s even better. Cuteness off the scale! Here are some fab Mother’s Day crafts for your little ones to do.

Jenny from Gingerbread House has come up with the idea of brightening up boring plant pots using colored duck tape. I would also add some funky washi tape designs too.
