Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and at Kenmore Hills Early Learning, we know there’s nothing quite like a gift created with little hands and big love. Forget store-bought trinkets! This year, let’s unleash the creativity of our adorable learners and whip up some fantastic DIY gifts.

Here are some great ideas to try:

  • “Mum’s Garden of Love” Planter: Grab a terracotta pot and paint it with vibrant colours. Let the little artists decorate it with handprints, flower patterns, or even their own self-portraits! Fill it with vibrant seedlings or colourful pebbles for an extra touch.

  • Pressed Flower Art: Take a walk in nature and collect beautiful fall leaves and wildflowers. Lay them flat between sheets of wax paper and let them dry under a heavy book. Then, let the kids cut out heart shapes or other fun designs and glue them onto cardboard or cardstock. Add a sweet message and voila, a one-of-a-kind masterpiece!
  • “Mum’s Morning Sunshine” Muffins: Baking is always a winner! With adult supervision, mix up a batch of delicious banana bread or blueberry muffins. Decorate them with sprinkles, edible flowers, or even faces made from raisins (think googly eyes and strawberry smiles!).

  • “Mum’s Super Smoothie Surprise”: Blend together Mum’s favourite fruits, yoghurt, and a touch of honey for a healthy and refreshing gift. Let the kids choose a cute jar and personalise it with colourful drawings or glitter.
  • “Mum’s Scented Spa Salts”: Combine Epsom salts with dried lavender or rose petals and let the kids mix in their favourite essential oils (lavender or chamomile for extra relaxation!). Package in a pretty jar and tie a ribbon for a touch of luxury.

Wishing you all a happy and love-filled Mother’s Day!
