Mother’s Day is a special day to celebrate the love and care that mothers give to their children. As a teacher, you can help your students express their gratitude and affection to their moms by making some lovely and unique crafts with them. Crafts are not only fun and creative, but also a great way to develop fine motor skills, problem-solving skills, and social skills in your students. In this blog post, I will share with you some of the best mother’s day crafts that you can make with your students in the classroom. These crafts are easy, inexpensive, and sure to make any mom smile.
5 Mother’s Day Gift Ideas
- DIY Flower Pot: Start by painting a terracotta flower pot in your mom’s favorite color. Then, take a picture of yourself and cut it out. Glue the picture onto the flower pot and write a message such as “I love you Mom” or “Happy Mother’s Day”. Fill the pot with her favorite flowers or plants, and you have a personalized gift that she will cherish.
- Homemade Bath Bombs: If your mom loves to relax and unwind after a long day, then homemade bath bombs are the perfect gift. Mix baking soda, citric acid, and Epsom salts together in a bowl. Add a few drops of essential oil and some food coloring to the mixture. Use a spray bottle to mist the mixture with water until it sticks together. Then, press the mixture into molds and let them dry overnight. Wrap them up in a pretty bag with a bow, and your mom will have a spa-like experience in her own bathroom.
- Hand-Painted Picture Frame: Buy an inexpensive wooden picture frame and paint it with your mom’s favorite colors. Once the paint has dried, take a picture of yourself or your family and put it inside the frame. This personalized gift will bring a smile to her face every time she sees it.
- DIY Jewelry Holder: Take a piece of wood or a small canvas and paint it in your mom’s favorite color. Once it has dried, add some hooks or knobs to hang jewelry on. You can also add a cute saying or quote with vinyl lettering. This gift is not only practical but also makes a beautiful addition to her bedroom or bathroom.
- Homemade Sugar Scrub: Mix coconut oil, sugar, and essential oils together in a bowl. Transfer the mixture to a mason jar and decorate the jar with ribbon or twine. Your mom will love the homemade sugar scrub that will leave her skin feeling soft and smooth.
