photo-gifts-for-mothers-dayClear off the tables, set out the glue, roll out the ribbons—Mother’s Day is arriving soon! It’s time to make gifts for mom. One way to make this year’s Mother’s Day DIY project a hit with kids and mothers is to make a photo gift featuring your child’s image.

We found a couple craft projects that do just that. Gather up your favorite photos and start planning the perfect personalized gift for mom this Mother’s Day. This is a great way to use wallet size Teddy Bear portraits from us. Be sure to have at least 5-10 images to ensure a variety to choose from.

  1. Photo Accordion Card

    These cards are darling and the variations are endless. Here’s a sweet example we found for Mother’s Day that can be used for Father’s Day or Grandparent’s Day. Kids learn to fold, glue, and decorate.

  2. Photo Bookmark

    Mom will love the surprise on the back of this bookmark! It involves photographing kids full-body front and back, so your center staff will need to be handy with a camera and desktop printer. Kids have fun posing for the photos and then glue together the project. Why not add ribbons or yarn and laminate?

  3. Popsicle Stick Frames

    Turn those Instagram photos and candid images into a gift that mom is sure to cherish. For this project, you’ll need regular or jumbo popsicle sticks, washi tape, glue, and magnets. Kids can embellish the frames with stickers, wood chips or ribbons.

These photo gifts are all keepers, sure to bring a smile to any mom regardless of errant glue, snafus, bent corners, or other endearing signs of tiny hands at work.
