Mother’s Day Art Projects for Kids

Photo Memory Book

Create a photo memory book filled with cherished moments and memories shared with Mom. Grab 10-15 pieces of card stock for your book pages. Using your arts & crafts supplies at home, decorate the pages with drawings and captions. Add your printed photos. Then, bind it together for a heartfelt keepsake.

Homeschool Tie-In

Make a digital Photo Memory Book. Allow your kids to learn about graphic design as they use the software for your photo book. If you’re in a hurry, just log into Walgreens and use one of their templates. Your kids can edit the templates so it’s a special, unique memory book for Mom. When you’re done, be sure to order a printed copy to give Mom on Mother’s Day.

Handprint Paper Bouquet

Create a beautiful bouquet of flowers using handprints! Trace your child’s hand on colored paper, cut them out, and arrange them into a bouquet shape. Add stems and leaves, and voila! A personalized bouquet that Mom will cherish forever.

Mother’s Day Folding Surprise

Make a fun card that can surprise mom with your art work. Watch the video below to see exactly how to do this.

Handprint Bouquet Painting

Paint your child’s hand and let him paint the canvas. Clean his hand and paint another color. After the handprint flowers dry, let your kids paint stems & leaves. They might even add a special bow around the stems. Be sure to have your child sign and date their painting with a sharpie.

Fingerprint or Handprint Family Tree

Create a fingerprint or handprint family tree by using ink pads and paper. Using markers or paint, draw your tree and branches for your fingerprint flowers to sit upon. Have each family member add their fingerprint as leaves on the branches of the tree. This heartfelt artwork will serve as a reminder of the love and bond shared within your family. Remember to date this artwork. You could even repeat this activity every few years.

Homeschool Tie-In

Spend the week, learning about fingerprints. Challenge your kids to learn 5 things about fingerprints.

Clay Handprint Keepsake

Capture your child’s handprint in clay to create a lasting keepsake. Roll out some air-dry clay, press your child’s hand into it, and let it dry. Once hardened, paint it with Mom’s favorite colors and add a ribbon for hanging. Sign the back of your art creation.

Watercolor Silhouette Portrait

Create a stunning watercolor silhouette portrait by tracing your child’s profile onto paper and painting it with watercolors. Frame it for a beautiful and personal Mother’s Day gift that Mom will adore.

Homeschool Tie-In:

This is a great homeschool tie-in to light and shadows. Let your kids explore why the shadows exist. Let them guess the animals of these hand shadows. Then, have fun making animal shadows on the wall

Heartfelt Canvas Painting

Grab some canvases and acrylic paints, and let your little artists express their love through painting. Whether it’s a heart-filled masterpiece or abstract expressionism, Mom will appreciate the effort and creativity put into each brushstroke.

Handcrafted Jewelry

Kids of all ages can make Mom a fun piece of jewelry. Get creative with some beads, string, and charms to create handcrafted jewelry for Mom. Whether it’s a beaded bracelet, necklace, or keychain, Mom will love wearing these personalized pieces made with love.

This Mother’s Day, take the opportunity to celebrate the love, warmth, and devotion of your own mom. Whether you’re creating a handmade gift or building lifelong relationships as you make these art projects, the joy and memories shared will be priceless.
