Getting ready for Mother's Day?!

Who could forget that the second Sunday in May is a special day devoted just to Moms?  I do think that moms should be celebrated every day, but it is nice to have one day just for us!

We have found great kid gifts for mom. These ideas are perfect for school teachers to find a fun and unique gift for their students to make for Mother's Day. We've made it very easy for dad to find something simple, yet beautiful, for the kiddos to create, too!

Mother's Day coloring pages, cards and crafts make a wonderful handmade Mother's Day gift for mom, grandma, or someone special on this day devoted just to them.

When it comes to Mother's Day, nothing says " I love You" more than a homemade craft from the kids.  Gifts that are made from toddlers, preschoolers, and the big kids will be treasured for years to come.

We have gathered some of our favorite free DIY Mother's Day craft ideas, tutorials and printables that you can help the kids make into very special gifts.

The unique craft ideas range from meaningful cards to painted mugs, from handprint Mother's Day cards and thumbprint projects to flower bouquets and much more. You are sure to find something just perfect for the kids in your life to create and make this day extra special for mom!
