Easy Crafts For Kids Aged 3-5 To Make
For Mother's Day
By: Nicola Kennedy
Kids are always wanting to make mom a
gift for Mother’s Day. They want something that is all their own,
without much help from anyone, so here are some ideas that are both
inexpensive and easy for them.
A home made jewelry box: Give the child a small paper mache box - sort
of like a jewelry box, any shape with a lid. Now, put down some
newspaper, put acrylic paints, brushes, glitter, buttons, charms, ribbon
or lace, glue, colored markers or crayons down on the paper, and let
your child do the work. You will be surprised what they can come up
They can also use the same materials to make a card for Mom on
Mother’s Day. Just get a thick card stock to fold in half so they can
decorate it. You can also use poster board and help them make a big
“Happy Mother’s Day” sign, to greet her in the morning with.
Another idea is to get some cheap plastic beads with big holes, some
string and let them make a matching set of bracelets and a necklace for
Cut out hearts of red, pink, lavender paper or poster board, color it,
put glitter on it and hang them all over the house.
Modeling clay is always a nice medium to play with. There are clays that
only need to dry in the air and need no baking at all. Modeling clay
allows your child to form anything that comes to mind. They can use
their imagination with no limits, except for the limits of the clay.
Once the project is dry, your child can paint it or dress it up any way
they want. It is an inexpensive way and fun way of letting your child
make and give of their heart to their mom on Mother’s Day.
Check your local craft shop for other project ideas that are appropriate
for this age group. Take your little one to the store and let them
decide what they want to make for mommy. Just remember to read the age
group limit on the outside of the box.
Always remember to supervise the children, especially with glue, paint
and scissors around.
