Mother’s Day Crafts for Kids
As a former teacher, I always loved getting my students to put together a cute, handmade Mother’s Day gift for their moms. Not only did they love the activity, but I loved getting to see the fun they had while they made a special gift to celebrate their moms! It’s so fun to be a part of a memory frozen in time. And as a mom myself, I can only imagine the joy that receiving those crafts brought to the moms of my students at home!
Since my love of teaching and all things arts and crafts lives on, I wanted to gather all of the best Mother’s Day craft ideas — specifically, Mother’s Day crafts for preschoolers and elementary students, because I worked with younger students when I was a teacher!

When I think back on my favorite Mother’s Day gifts from my own kids, they were all the handmade works of art that they made in school. There’s just nothing better than knowing they worked hard on an adorable gift for their mom!
