If you have children, no matter their age, you can still get them involved in creating meaningful Mother’s Day gifts. Some of the best gifts are not those that come with a high price tag. They are, in fact, the sentimental gifts that mum will treasure for years to come. Here are some great gift ideas for your children to make.
Home made gifts
Home made cards with handwritten messages are such sentimental gifts. Even if your child does not yet know how to write, you can ask them what they would like to say. You can then write it on a piece of paper and have them copy what you have written into a card. They can decorate the card as they please. If your child is still a baby, you can write a special message and decorate the card with their hand print. Older children can make a decorative vase. They can print pictures out and glue them to the vase. Decoupage is a great technique that will preserve this design for years to come.
Fresh picked flowers
If you have fresh blooms growing in your garden or in your neighbourhood, you can take your child or children for a little walk to pick some flowers for mum. Place these blooms in a vase and you have one of the most meaningful yet inexpensive Mother’s Day gifts of all. You can even let your children tell mum all about their adventure seeking the best blooms just for her.
