byJacqueline Burt Cote
Little kids love making things for their friends and family members, and mom is usually at the very top of the list when it comes to deserving recipients of their creations. That's why so many Mother's Day gifts are of the handmade variety. From placemats to pot holders and so much more, kid pour their hearts into these projects (not to mention a lot of glue). Even super young ones can get in on the DIY gifting action, especially if the gift doesn't have to be particularly functional. But what are some easy Mother's Day crafts for toddlers to make? Turns out, you have options.
Whether their motor skills are still in the finger painting phase or they've progressed to bead-stringing (and maybe even safety scissors), the crafts on this list are simple enough for most toddlers to make without dissolving into a puddle of frustration and tears. Naturally, they'll need a little help from a pair of more experienced hands, but considering toddlers still need help putting their socks on, that's to be expected. The best part about these activities is that you probably have a lot of the necessary supplies already, and any extra items that might need to be purchased are inexpensive and easy to find at any craft store.
And of course, these crafts double as sweet keepsakes that will stay with you for many a Mother's Day to come. (In a closet somewhere, but still.)
