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!
