Mothers Day 2013 :: mother’s day crafts

Mothers Day 2013 is on Sunday March 10th in the UK and Sunday May 13th in the US. Are you planning some making, baking or crafting for it?

I love homemade gifts at any time of the year, but I think there’s something extra special about a child-made mothers day craft. Here are ten of our favourite ideas that you might like to try this year. There’s a mix of ideas to suit all ages of children, including ideas for cards, homemade gifts and things you can bake (my favourite of all!) As well as producing something lovely to give to mum, each idea also has a new technique or creative idea for the children to try out – so they’re learning something new too.
