Are you getting ready to celebrate Mother’s Day?


Help your child create something memorable this Mother’s Day with these three free printables! Perfect for moms, grandmothers, aunts, or any special person in your child’s life, these simple crafts are sweet and sentimental (and quick to make!)

To get started you’ll need:

1. Moher’s Day Greeting Card

Help your child give a card they’ll be proud of with a handmade Mother’s Day card! Ask your child to gather some markers or crayons, and color the card’s floral designs however they’d like. Then, cut along the dotted line, fold in half, and help your child write (or draw) a special Mother’s Day message.



2. Mini Notes with Matching Envelope!

These mini notes are perfect for budding writers! Help your child complete the sentence in each of the six mini “love notes”. Color the notes in, and cut them apart using child-safe scissors.



You can then either help your child make a mini envelope (using the printable provided), or place the love notes in a kid-made keeepsake box!

~Tip: For an adorable “Box of Love” craft, see this blog post from our Blog Ambassador, Zina. Or let your child create a Decorate-Your-Own Wooden Heart Box for Mom.



Psssst. . . you can also have a wooden heart box personalized by Melissa & Doug!)

3. Mother’s Day Picture Frame

Design a fabulous frame for a special mom in your life by asking your child to color the picture frame printable below. Then, glue or tape a special photo over the gray area, and present to mom (with a BIG hug and kiss!) Don’t forget to have the child sign and date the bottom of the frame!



Below are a few additional customizable frames your little Picasso
can proudly give this Mother’s Day…
