Mother's Day Bookmark
A Mother's Day bookmark is an easy craft that makes a lovely homemade gift. In the one pictured here it reads: You have a golden heart.
All you need to make this is construction paper and crayons. If younger kids are creating this, they can simply draw pictures of their mother and hearts. If the kids know how to write, they can include the saying.

Mother's Day Handprint Crafts
Handprint crafts are popular for Mother's Day. They are generally easy to make. Take the one in the photograph. It was made with a child's hand covered in paint and placed on a paper doily.
A particular favorite of mine is to use paint to put handprints on a plain white coffee mug.
I have additional craft ideas below. I think there is something so special about handprint crafts. It's something moms can forever treasure.

Mother's Day Frame
Kids can make a colorful Mother's Day frame. Just print this out and supply coloring crayons and pencils. To make it more sturdy, I suggest gluing it onto a piece of cardboard.
Now, decide how you want to use the frame. Kids can write a letter or a poem. They could also put in a picture or a collage of pictures. It's all up to one's imagination.

Children's Mother's Day Poems
A sweet Mother's Day poem is a beautiful way to let a mother know how much her child loves her. If you're interested in this, feel free to click on the stationary and print out this page as it makes for a pretty background.
As far as poems go, if it's a young child who isn't yet ready for writing a poem, you can always make a heading saying: 5 Reasons I Love My Mom, then have the child write down the reasons.
If you prefer, I have a list of poems below that can be printed out for free and used.

Personalized Recipe Box
Even with a wealth of recipes on the internet, a lot of moms still use recipe boxes. Perhaps they contain special family recipes passed down or maybe some are recipes clipped out of magazines. I know mine has a combination of both along with recipes friends have given me.
