Mother’s Day Crafts for Kids: Outdoor Edition

Mother’s Day is a special day to show your mum how much you love and appreciate her and our team here at JCB Explore has got you covered. A thoughtful and personal gift can go a long way in making her feel special. What better way to celebrate the day than by creating handmade gifts using materials that you can find in nature? In this article, we’ll explore some fun and creative Mother’s Day craft ideas that are easy to make using natural materials found outdoors.

Flower Crowns

Make your mum feel like a queen by creating a beautiful flower crown for her.

Pick some wildflowers and daisies from the garden or park and use florist wire and tape to create a crown.

Weave the stems together to create a beautiful flower wreath that your mum can wear.

Pebble Art

Get creative with pebble art and make a unique gift for your mum.

Collect some small pebbles from the beach or riverbed and use acrylic paints to create a design.

You can paint a heart or your mum’s initials, or create a picture that your mum will love.

Glue the pebbles onto a canvas or a piece of card and present it to your mum on Mother’s Day.

Herb Garden

Create a mini herb garden for your mum using recycled cans or jars.

Collect some small rocks or gravel and place them in the bottom of each can or jar for drainage. 

Then fill them with soil and plant herb seeds or seedlings.

You can paint and decorate the cans or jars for a personalised touch.

Flower Press

Create a flower press to preserve the beauty of flowers found outdoors.

Collect some cardboard, tissue paper, and string.

Cut the cardboard and tissue paper into squares, then layer them together.

Place some flowers on top of the tissue paper and add another layer of tissue paper and cardboard.

Stack several layers of the cardboard, tissue paper, and flowers, then tie them together with string. Leave the flower press outside in the sun for a few days to dry the flowers.

Leaf Rubbing Art

Collect some different shaped and sized leaves and place them under a piece of paper.

Use a crayon or pencil to rub over the paper, creating a unique leaf print.

Cut out the leaf prints and use them to create a collage or card for your mum.

Making handmade gifts is a wonderful way to show your mum how much you love and appreciate her on Mother’s Day. Using natural materials found outdoors can make these gifts unique and special. So go ahead and have fun creating these crafts and make it a memorable Mother’s Day.
