I think store-purchased gifts are great. But, when you’ve got little kids, no gift is better than a hand-crafted, wobbly, over-glued, heart-felt gift. So, I wanted to share a few of the hand-crafted gifts we’ve done that would make awesome gifts for the ladies in your lives. Why don’t you check out these Mother’s Day Gifts Kids Can Craft!
I can tell you from personal experience, this is the best scrub I’ve ever used, including the expensive, store-bought scrubs. This I love and make all the time.
- Fill a beautiful jar (see above pic) with sugar
- Pour melted coconut oil over the top.
- Add 6 drops of delicious essential oils (I like peppermint, because I use it in the a.m.)
- Stir with a long-handled fork to work the oil through the sugar.
- Continue adding oil until all the sugar is coated.
- Add a wooden spoon and tie onto the jar with a tag and twine.
Here are a few more wonderful little ideas, that will make the ladies in your lives very happy!
The Knotted Fleece Blanket:
You can purchase the kits at Jo-Anne Fabrics very reasonably, if you get them on sale with a coupon. Bonus!
The Photo Book:
Who doesn’t love to recieve pictures? I am the photo book queen of our family. I usually use Shutterfly for gifts, because they will last forever. Love the quality!
Window Picture Frame:
I love this old window! If you have one bumpin’ around in your attic, use it for a fantastic home-made gift. You could put pictures in the inserts and then modge-podge them. Or, you could do what I did, print off some cute printables and attach them with a cute washi tape (easy to change around when you get tired of it!)
How cute are these? I have these pictures hanging on my wall in our lower level. They are huge, but hard to tell from the photo. They made these by tracing their shoes (begin with a pencil, when the picture is to their liking, then trace with a black Sharpie. They traced their hands, then, they drew the rest of their body keeping the shapes very simple. To make it interesting, they have to draw the bottom of their shoes exactly how the shoe looks on the bottom. (My perfectionist son almost lost his mind making all the little circles 🙂 Then, watercolor paint the bodies. Frame them and you’ve got some great modern art for the grands!
