15 Handmade Mothers Day Gift Ideas Kids Can Help Make

Since Mother’s Day is coming up soon, I thought I’d put together some ideas for Mother’s Day gifts kids can make for mothers, grandmothers, aunts, and other mother figures in their lives.

Handmade gifts that aren’t too complicated and that we still have time to make.

Some of these children can make or do on their own (depending on their age), some might be more of a collaborative effort with a grown-up.

Here goes!
