Looking for simple and inexpensive gifts for the kids to give mom and grandma for Mother’s Day? We’ve got a cute DIY paper flower craft that is so easy for the kids to make, and a gift that mom and grandma will love. The best Mother’s Day gifts are homemade and come from the heart!
We love giving personalized coupon booklets for the holidays and so of course we had to do a little twist on the traditional coupon booklet and make a Mother’s Day themed coupon flower pot. The great thing about a coupon book for mom and grandma is you can easily personalize the gift and it’s a very inexpensive Mother’s Day gift idea.
The sky’s the limit for what coupons you can give mom and/or grandma. We vary the coupons the kids give mom and grandma, depending on the age of the children. A toddler will need more help with coupon tasks, so involve dad and grandpa! Dad and grandpa (or even older siblings) can help toddlers and small children perform the acts of service for mom and grandma.
Shower mom and grandma with love by offering to do small acts of kindness and service for them throughout the month when they redeem their coupons. Some of our favorite Mother’s Day gift ideas to add to the coupon flowers are:
- 10 minute massage
- 10 minute backscratch
- Paint fingernails / toenails
- Breakfast in bed
- Car wash – inside and outside
- Break from the dishes
- Help with laundry / sorting clothes
- Uninterrupted bubble bath
- Night off from cooking
- Family movie night
- Break from dishes / help with dishes
- Go out for a treat
- Chore of your choice
- Baking together
- Hugs and kisses
- Babysit for free
- A walk together
- Craft or activity together
- Morning of sleeping in
- Uninterrupted nap
There are so many simple and easy gift ideas the kids can give mom and/or grandma in the Mother’s Day coupon booklet. It really is the perfect gift because you can personalize it to give them something they need and want! We love thoughtful gifts that don’t cost very much and that are meaningful for mom and grandma. Moms love flowers, so give them flowers that include small acts of kindness and service they can redeem throughout the month. The women in your life will appreciate the extra help around the house and will love being pampered.
This Mother’s Day craft makes a great kids activity for a preschool class or for a church primary activity day idea. Gather your small church group or preschool class, and make a fun homemade gift for mom that she’ll love! The pot of flowers is a simple DIY craft kids can easily and quickly make. To put together the pot of flowers you will need to:
- Download (at the bottom of this post) the printable Mother’s Day flower coupon craft and print on cardstock paper.
- Cut out all the pieces and attach the flowers to popsicle sticks.
- Fold the flower pot in half and hole punch the two corners of the flower pot.
- Add ribbon or twine to the flower pot to keep it together.
- Finish off the craft by adding personalized flower coupons with small acts of kindness and service for mom and/or grandma.
