15 Mother’s Day Crafts You Will Actually Want to Keep

15 easy Mother's Day crafts Art Sprouts

Ah, Mother’s day crafts… “It’s the thought that counts,” we say. 

Mother’s day is coming up, and parents all over the world are ready to awe in admiration at their child’s umpteenth macaroni project.  

But the truth is cards, drawings, and edible sculptures fill up fridges and shelves pretty quickly. So how about we venture out, and engage students in creating something parents will actually want to keep?

Don’t get me wrong. I do understand the reasoning behind making “cards”: it’s easy, is cheap, is quick, and anybody can do it.

But it is also a missed opportunity. 

When I was in grade school, a lady from the local community came to school teach how to create patchwork decors for mother’s day (or was it easter holidays?).

What I do remember is that I loved it.  It was something new and once I learned, I was able to continue creating by myself at home.  

So you can hire your local crafty lady, or even more convenient, ask the “ladies on the internet” how to create pretty much anything!

So here is a list of 15 super easy mother’s day crafts that you will actually want to keep.
