Mother’s Day is a wonderful way to honor the fearless mom, grandmother, or aunt in your life. My mom is pretty amazing. Throughout the years, she has always been there, wiping away every tear and giving me her incredible twenty-second hugs. She tirelessly worked to be the best mom she could, and on top of it all, she is working on finishing her degree. Even though we’ve had our ups and downs, she is still my superwoman and is the best example of a godly woman I have seen. What can you do to share how much you appreciate those amazing women? Here are some of our top Mother’s Day craft ideas to honor those women in your life.

Elementary School Mother’s Day Craft Ideas

April showers bring May flowers, right? This cute flower bouquet has an advantage: it won’t fade over time! Using construction paper, glue, and scissors, these flowers will pop up almost instantly.
Find the craft instructions on Pinterest here.
NOTE: Make sure to supervise your child because scissors are used in this project.

This simple but adorable Mother’s Day craft idea costs very little and is cute to boot! If your mom is anything like mine, she loves chocolate. With a tile from your local hardware store, a pack of M&M’S® (or any candy that’s in a snack-size bag), and imagination, this Mother’s Day craft will please any chocolate lover.
Instructions can be found on Pinterest here.

These Mother’s Day craft ideas for elementary students are easy to do. Your child can get their DIY on!

Middle School Mother’s Day Craft Ideas

This isn’t so much a craft as a printable, but it’s a great gift for the mom who always has a lot going on (Don’t all moms have a lot going on?). From doing the laundry to making breakfast in bed, your student can help out around the house. Plus, you (mom) can take a break and scroll through Facebook. Just don’t use all the coupons at once, unless you really want to!
Print the coupon book here.

Extra! Extra! Read all about the amazing, one-and-only, Mom! This activity shows all the reasons why to love Mom. Get creative by drawing a photo, filling in the blanks, and more. Want to go the extra mile? Use this printable as a template and make your own newspaper on the computer. Check out websites such as Canva to step up your game with great graphic design. Mother’s Day will be “extra” special with this activity!

High School Mother’s Day Craft Ideas

Here’s a challenge for you: Write your mom a poem in iambic pentameter! What is iambic pentameter? A sentence in iambic pentameter alternates between unstressed and stressed syllables. A great example from Shakespeare’s work is, “But, soft! What light through yonder window breaks?” You’ll learn how Shakespeare wrote his sonnets AND show Mom some love!

Make your own succulent garden! Did you know that succulents can help you relax and breathe easier in your home? Studies have shown that having indoor houseplants helps you concentrate and make your day more productive. Take some time to research the benefits of the plants and make your mom the perfect and relaxing indoor garden. (If your mom doesn’t like to keep up with watering plants, make sure to find some that don’t require a lot of upkeep.)
There are some ideas here and here from Pinterest.

Ultimately, something from your heart — that shows your mom how much her time and love mean to you — is the best gift you could ever give. Have more ideas? We’d love to hear about them! Share them in the comments below.

Hello everyone! I’m Jessica Parnell — mom, homeschool evaluator, teacher, and CEO of Bridgeway Academy. In my 20+ years of experience as a homeschool mom and evaluator, I have had the privilege of meeting homeschoolers that take a variety of approaches to their education. It is their many stories and successes that inspire me in my own homeschooling and I love to pass on the knowledge that I have gained from them to other homeschooling families. The one constant that always remains true is that there’s no such thing as a “cookie cutter child.” Each child is fearfully and wonderfully made and as a result, learns and functions differently. It’s our job to ensure that we’re raising each child to fulfill their individual purpose and when we can teach in a way that inspires them, we are on our way to homeschool success. When I’m not writing or teaching my children, I like to ski, write and participate in triathlons. I graduated from Kutztown University with a Bachelor of Science in Education and a Masters in English and I am currently pursuing a degree in Neuroleadership.
