Out of all the Mothers Day gifts I’ve lavished on my mom over the years, guess which ones she appreciated the most?
Hands down she’d tell you that her favorite gifts were the handmade variety.
It didn’t matter that most of the time it was hard for mom to work out what I’d actually created (I wasn’t very artsy as a child).
What mattered was that I’d created with love. Just like this little selection of Mothers Day crafts for kids (except these are way better than my feeble attempts at crafting).
Enjoy ’em! Share them with your kids.
