5 Easy Mother’s Day Crafts Preschoolers Can Make

Talk about waiting until the last minute to get organize gifts for Mother’s Day…whew! In case you are running behind like I am, I thought it would be helpful to compile a list of SUPER CUTE Mother’s Day gifts preschoolers can make in 5 minutes (or less)!

1. Personalized Pot Holders

All you need for this easy Mother’s Day gift for preschoolers is a plain-colored pot holder and some good-quality fabric markers!

2. Honey Citrus Sugar Scrub

Make up a beautiful scented sugar scrub for Mom or Grandma with this quick and easy recipe. Get your preschooler to help with measuring out the ingredients and mixing it together.


Mix 1 cup of sugar, 1/4 cup of olive oil, 1-2 Tablespoons of honey, and 20-30 drops of lemon and/or orange essential oil. Don’t have any essential oil? Just use a couple of teaspoons of vanilla extract instead and make it a vanilla scent.

Have your child help mix everything together and then plop it in a glass container. Add a ribbon and you have an extra special homemade gift that will definitely be enjoyed!


3. Tin Can and Burlap Flower Vases

Add burlap onto the recycled tin cans using a hot glue gun. Have your child use his/her fingerprint to make a heart using some acrylic paint. Add flowers from your garden for a sweet and simple centerpiece. Once the flowers die, the tin can flower vase can be used to hold pens and pencils!

4. Flower Pen

Trim the ends of some silk flowers and use some floral tape to secure the flower onto a writing pen. We used some baking soda modeling clay inside of recycled YoKids Smoothie containers to function as a pen holder.



This gift is probably best for school-aged children, as wrapping the floral tape around the pen takes some serious fine motor skills. :)


5. Personalized Candle

Use a metal skewer (or toothpick) to draw a design into a plain candle. Have your child paint over the design and then wipe away the excess paint. See all the details here.
