Get inspired with these no-mess and some-mess crafts for kids to give to mom!
Sherri at About Family Crafts is getting us ready for Mother's Day, with some fun crafts ideas for kids to give to Mom. With a little washable paint and their hands, kids can make a handprint T-shirt, oven mitt or their handprint and a poem, which is sure to warm Mom's heart! Or skip the paint all together and get your kids involved in a no-mess flower photo frame craft, which uses a canning lid as the center and burlap for the flower petals. Another great idea is to give kids markers and shrink wrap, which they can use to turn their artwork into a giftable necklace.
