Mothers day tea activities

The month of May means Mommy time! Older children get to surprise Mother dear with presents, flowers, maybe breakfast in bed. But if your kids are too little to make plans for you, don’t worry. You can try something unique. Throw yourselves a “Mommy & Me” tea party or brunch for Mother’s Day – with crafty activities to do together. (See our 3-part Mother’s Day Tea Party post for ideas on food, decor and gifts, and vintage crockery. Plus, our Mother’s Day Brunch post here.) You’ll love the sweet bonding time over these projects!

10 Craft Activities to Enjoy for Mother’s Day

Creating something together makes Mother’s Day extra-fun and meaningful. Choose from these 10 DIY activities for 2 or 3 that your little one(s) can manage. (*this post contains affiliate links)

Simple painting projects

Try flower pot painting (1) as an adorable way to perk up your window sill plants or kitchen counter herb garden. Or perhaps a hand-print wooden tray (2) that’s sure to become a treasured household item.

Kiddie keepsakes

Make memories of this moment in time for the two of you with projects like these. A DIY tufted memo board (3) that you can customize with your choice of fabric, ribbon, and frame – and display your photos, cards, and other mementos. A truly personalized scrapbook (4) filled with snippets of memories and decorative trimmings. Or a DIY family tree (10 – see below)) using a pre-printed background that you can glue little photos of each family member onto, and display!

Mommy gifts

Every mother’s heart is warmed by presents lovingly made by little hands. So consider these cute kid-doable gifts. Flowers on a stick (5) perhaps? So easy, with faux flowers glued to craft (popsicle) sticks then personalized. Your little one could make you a whole bunch!

Or this sentimental memory jar (7) that’s a candy or apothecary jar filled with mini fold-up cards, each one appreciating a special memory with you. (Another family member can help your youngster write these out.)

Whether this is a shared or a surprise project, decorating letters spelling out Mom (6) with photos and other keepsake touches makes a truly endearing gift. Just as decorating cookies (8) together is always a sweet mother-child activity, while making bead bracelets (9) lets you create matching accessories for the senior and junior fashionista!
