Gearing up for Mother's Day 2019, the team at Mumbler present a range of low-cost, easy craft ideas suitable for children. 

  • Mother's Day is on Sunday 31st March 2019. 
  • Local Mumbler groups from Harrogate, Ripon & Nidderdale, North Leeds and Wharfedale & Craven have been on the search for some simple craft ideas for you.

1.  Paint your own treasure box

These can be as simple or as elaborate as you wish.

Boxes can be picked up for just £1 at crafts stores such as The Works.

From mess-free (almost) creations using colouring pencils or stickers, to more messy cut-n-stick and paint ideas, we're sure Mums would be happy to receive their own little treasure box for Mother's Day.

2. A 3D Bunch of Flowers

Use straws and a range of craft items to create your own bunch of flowers. 

Feathers, tissue paper, coloured card; the possibilities are endless.

Flowers come in all shapes and sizes... and so do Mums!

You can also make a card from your 3D flowers but just sticking them on to a piece of folded card.

3. A hand print card

This one is great for older children who can practice their writing, and can also be fairly mess-free as it only requires pencils and card as minimum.

4. A hand print flower

This is a good way to encourage recycling, by using items such as old egg boxes to create the centre of the flower. 

Paint your hands and create a circle of petals before finishing with a painted centre (made out of used cardboard!) and stalks or leaves.

The googly eyes are optional... but kids love them!

You flowers don't have to be yellow, they could be any colour you like!

5. A celery rose

Seen by Mumbler on Pinterest, this is a great way to get the kids excited about healthy eating as well as crafts!

Simply cut open a heart of celery, stamp in paint and then press onto card to create a simple rose shape.
