Handmade Mother's Day gifts are some of the most special and memorable presents that a momma can receive. Knowing that a child worked to make something for you with their own little hands- well, that is priceless. I've compiled some of my easiest and most classic crafts here, but feel free to check out my Crafts page for more ideas!
DIY Chalk Sand Art
Make Your Own Spin Art T-Shirts
Making your own spin art has never been easier. It's also fairly mess free (it's all done in a salad spinner!). You can make regular old spin art, or make a pretty t-shirt for mom by following the instructions on my Spin Art T-Shirt page. We made our shirts for Field Day, but you can make something really special as a gift for someone, too.
Create Your Own Votive Candle
Toddler and kid paintings make amazing gifts, especially if you have them framed or add a handprint of the artist. This type of painting (using marbles, paint, paper and a tray), keeps everything mess-free. Your completed project can be framed or turned into a card for that special mom in your life.

These suncatchers are so easy and so pretty, we've made at least five of them and they are all propped up on our windowsill right at this very moment. They make such nice gifts and you can personalize them with special colors or designs. Read my easy tutorial here!
Giant Chocolate Chip Pan Cookies
Ok so this is not really a craft, but I can attest that as a mom, I would totally love it if someone gave me one of these as a gift! A fairly quick recipe, you don't even need a cookie pan. You can actually shape it into a giant cookie on tinfoil, then bake it on a baking tray. Decorate with frosting and present on a silver platter. Mom will love you forever!

Happy Mother's Day!!
