Mother’s Day: Easy Crafts for Little Hands

    Mother’s Day is coming fast. If you are in search of a quick, sweet craft to do with your child for Mom, we have two great options for you.

    “Love You, Mom” Water Cup
    Mother's Day Crafts - Love You, Mom Water Cup
    You need:

    • White or clear plastic drinking cup
    • Permanent markers in several colors
    • Smock or old shirt to cover clothes


    • Put on the smock and decorate the cup with the markers. Be creative! Here are some suggestions:
    • Draw a picture of your mom or of your family.
    • Draw a picture of something she likes!
    • Draw symbols of God’s love such as a heart, a cross, or a Baptism shell.
    • Write a Mother’s Day message such as “I love you, Mother!” or “WOW.” (Use all capitals so when you turn the cup upside down it says MOM!)
    • Write a Bible verse. Proverbs 31:28 “Her children rise up and call her blessed” (Proverbs 31:28).  “The joy of the LORD is your strength” (Nehemiah 8:10).
    • Fill the cup with little gifts like candy or flowers.
    • Give it to your mother with a hug and a kiss!

    Loving-Heart Soap

    Mother's Day Crafts - Loving-Heart Soap
    You need:

    • Several bars of Ivory Soap
    • Liquid soap, like Johnson’s brand baby wash
    • Bowl, paper plates
    • Heart-shaped cookie cutter
    • Access to a microwave
    • Paper lunch sack and colored markers


    • Break the Ivory Soap into chunks and put in a bowl. Microwave it in batches for 20 to 30 seconds. It expands and is fun to watch! Remove from the microwave and break into crumbles.
    • Put the crumbles on a paper plate.
    • Add a small amount of liquid soap to the crumbles. Form the soap into a new soap ball.
    • Continue to add liquid soap until you have the right amount for the soap to stay together in its new shape.
    • Flatten the ball with your hand on the plate.
    • Use a cookie cutter to cut out a heart.
    • Make more!
    • Let the soap dry.
    • Decorate a lunch sack for a gift bag and put the soap in it!

    Give it to your mother with a hug and a kiss!
