'MUM' card Mother's Day crafts
This bright and bold card is made from torn paper so it's fun and easy for even younger crafters to do.
'MUM' card equipment
1 yellow sheet of A4 card; pink, blue, brown and light green A4 paper; ruler; glue stick; scissors; green ribbon; mini wooden peg.
How to make a 'MUM' card
Fold a sheet of yellow card in half and tear the pink paper into the word 'MUM' - you can use a ruler to help you tear the paper neatly. Rip the blue, brown, green paper in half lengthways. Assemble the blue, brown and green paper on the yellow card as shown in the picture above, leaving a little of the yellow card showing at the top, then stick everything down and trim off the excess paper. Stick the pink 'MUM' letters on top. Tie the green ribbon into a pretty bow and attach it to the card using the wooden peg. Your 'MUM' card is ready to write in and send.
Homemade Mother's Day with rose design
Your kids will need some celery and paint to make this pretty stamped-rose card.
Rose card equipment
White and brown A4 card; celery heart; pink paint squirted onto a paper plate; green paint; paintbrush; scissors; glue; brown felt pen; pink ribbon.
How to make a rose card
Take a celery heart and cut off the stalks using a knife. Dip the celery heart, stalks-end first, into the pink paint and make a print onto white card (have a few test prints first). Paint on a green stalk and some leaves and the celery print will suddenly start to look like a rose. Once the rose has dried, cut it out and stick it onto brown card, which has been folded in half. Using a brown felt pen draw a wood effect around the border to look like a wooden frame. Then tie a pink bow and stick it onto the rose card to finish it off.
Homemade gift voucher for Mother's Day
Because what mums really want is a break from the housework and maybe even breakfast in bed.
'I owe you' gift voucher equipment
Mum I owe you voucher PDF (opens in new tab); scissors; glue; tan-coloured card; hole punch; ribbon; black pen.
How to make an 'I owe you' gift voucher
Print off your 'mum I owe you' voucher (opens in new tab), then cut the voucher out. Cut out a large gift-tag shape from the tan card and stick the voucher on. Next, punch a hole in the corner of the gift tag voucher and tie on a ribbon. Write your gift on the voucher using your best black pen and your voucher is ready to give away.
Homemade Mother's Day body scrub
Kids will have fun mixing up this gorgeous beauty scrub using skin-loving ingredients from the kitchen, and it comes in a pretty pink jar too.
Body scrub jar equipment
Extra virgin olive oil; sugar; 5 drops of lavender essential oil; spoon; 1 jar with lid; pink acrylic paint; PVA glue; paintbrush; iridescent white glitter; stick-on gems; pink ribbon.
How to make a body scrub jar
To make the body scrub, mix equal parts of sugar and olive oil together, followed by 5 drops of lavender essential oil and spoon the scrub into a clean jar. To decorate the jar, paint the lid using a 50/50 mixture of paint and PVA glue, then sprinkle over the glitter and once it's dried completely, stick a gem in the middle. Stick more gems around the outside of the jar, pop on the lid, then tie on a pretty bow and your lovely body scrub jar gift is ready. You could even tie on a small label with 'body scrub' written on it.
Safety: Supervise children when using scissors or a knife, or do the cutting for them.
