Mother’s Day Crafts For Toddlers – Card And Flowers

We’ve been making Mother’s Day Crafts that are easy enough for toddlers to do with a little bit of help. A card and flowers tend to be traditional Mother’s Day gifts, so why not let your toddler make them! Older children may enjoy these simple crafts too.

Flower Colouring Craft

Mother's Day Flower Colouring Craft Printable

Mrs Mactivity has some fab Mother’s Day crafts such as this gorgeous Mother’s day flowering colouring craft. These printable flowers are hand drawn ready for you to simply colour, cut and give to mum this Mother’s Day! With 3 different designs and two different sizes, small & large, this fab colouring craft is quick and simple enough for toddlers to make.

 

Colouring Flower Craft

Older children will enjoy taking care colouring the individual flowers or the large flower colouring craft. I trimmed ours a little bit more at the end so the flowers stood out a little more too. If you liked this you may like the pots of flowers Izzy made last year for Easter too!

Mother’s Day Card

Mother’s Day Cards are always fun to make with so many fab ideas out there. Raiding our craft box, we decided to make a lovely flower card to go with the paper flowers. Flowers are definitely the theme here this Mother’s Day! All of these items can be bought at any craft store or pound shops.

You Will Need:

 

To make our card we took a sheet of card, a foam flower, smiley sticker (to brighten up the flower) and a green lollypop stick for the flower’s stem.We simply took our sheet of card and folded it in half, then we glued the lolly stick down first in the centre of the page lining it up with the bottom of the card.

Step 1

The girls thought the darker green lollypop stick would look better than the light green. Next, we added the foam flower, making sure to overlap the lolly pop stick ‘stem’. We used a large foam flower but you could use smaller ones and add several to your card.

Step 2

To finish our flower we added our smiley face sticker to the centre of the flower to look like happy pollen. You could use anything though, a heart centre would look lovely too!

Step 3

 

Finally, we wrote ‘Happy Mother’s Day’ written at the top in a gold sharpie. This craft only took a few minutes, making it one of the quicker mother’s day crafts for toddlers. Along with the gorgeous flower colouring craft from Mrs Mactivity, your toddler is all set for Mother’s Day this year!

A Crafty Easter Half Term – Our Top 3 Makes

We’ve had quite a crafty Easter half term so far!

Our awesome friends Slim & his mum spoilt the girls with a ton of crafty gifts to keep them busy across the half term. I’ve also been building up our stash over the last few months so the girls have had tons of fun deciding what to make. We’ve been using the Bendon Craft project idea book from the giant craft jar, some we have adapted & made a little differently too!

Our Top 3 Makes

Peek-a-boo Puppet

Peek-a-boo puppet

The first craft the girls decided they both wanted to make at the same time was a peek-a-boo puppet from the crafts projects workbook included in the GIANT craft kit the girls received. These are cute little chicks in eggs and so simple to make even Izzy was able to literally get stuck in gluing the pieces on. Izzy mastered using the scissors thanks to this craft and it was finished within minutes.

Simply cut out an egg shape, use wonky scissors to cut it in half & stick each half on the front of the peg making sure the egg joins together. Then cut out & draw/decorate you chick & stick it to the back of the peg. Both girls really enjoyed making these and they are pretty cute too!

 

Owl Mask

After that the girls decided to do different things, with Eva making necklaces using foam shapes & pipe cleaners (no photo’s please!) and Izzy deciding to make an Owl Mask using one of the templates from the craft kit. Izzy loves owls and was telling me to cut out purple paper for the eyes (yes the dodgy eyes are my doing haha!) and cutting out the eyebrows herself. Whilst Eva was busy cutting all the fluff off a pipe cleaner (I have no idea why I wasn’t allowed to know.. it was a top secret make it seems!) Izzy was stealing it all to add to her mask haha!

 

Pot of Flowers

Love this little flower pot Izzy made this morning! 🌸🌵 #crafts #toddlercrafts #flowers #flowerpot #sparklycrafts #eastercrafts #artsandcrafts #kidscrafts

Our absolute favourite make this week, which you may have already spotted over on Instagram, is the Pot of flowers Izzy made (and the monster to hide in them of course!). We adapted the idea using the craft project book and decided it was much easier to use foam flowers, push pipe cleaners through the middle & twisting it to secure the flower. After making several of these we found a metal seasoning pot which already had holes in the top and covered it in Washi tape before popping the flowers in. Izzy then decided it needed a butterfly on the front and eventually even a monster!

Of course Izzy! We were missing a monster hiding in the flowers.. how could I forget.. #toddlers #monster #monsterintheflowers #crafts #toddlercrafts #monstercrafts #monstervflowers #flowercrafts #artsandcrafts

These crafts were simple yet fun to do and easy enough for Izzy to do most of the work. We will be using the craft kit & crafting project book again over the Easter half term and see what other makes we can come with!
