Mother's Day
All Ages10 Comments

Finally, I’ve come up with a list of a bunch of non-flower type crafts for mom that the kids can make for Mother’s Day.

Every year, it seems that the kids and I make some kind of flower crafts for Mother’s Day to give to Grandma.

I’m trying to get out of that rut and find some non-flower crafts for the kids to make. We just made these gorgeous tinted mason jars that I’m incredibly excited about! Just gotta find something cool to fill them with!

But there’s so many other ideas I’m finding now! I’m personally loving the vase idea. Then you can refill it with all those flowers in years to come!

Here’s 10 of my favorite non-flower crafts for Mom (or Grandma) that the kids can make!
