Craft Gifts every mother will love

Give a Gift from the Heart - Mothers days Gifts

Mother’s Day crafts ideas don’t have to be elaborate they just have to be made from the heart. These crafts also take Mother Nature to heart and are made with one of more recycled material like scrap paper, old books, even those little plugs from milk and juice cartons.

One of the best parts of creating with your child is the time you spend together. Parent and tot projects like this Beach Shell DIY Craft Picture Frame  are a special time to not only work together on something but also to practice taking turns something that can never be done too much .

Gather your materials. You will need some cardboard ( 2x as large as you want the frame to be) , a large magnet , crayons, shells, hot glue gun and glue, scissors , tape and a picture.

Start by cutting your cardboard in half, then cutting an opening in one piece for the frame.

Tape your picture ( I trimmed mine) on the other half  of the cardboard. Trim the cardboard so that it’s no larger than the frame piece , you don’t want it peeking out from underneath.

Have your child decorate the frame with crayons.

Heat up the glue gun. Glue shells on, Glue the magnet on the back of the piece with the picture. Glue the two pieces together and let cool.

Gather your materials. You will need some milk carton plugs, hot glue gun, hot glue, seed beads, and a small dish that won’t stick to the glue. I used a 2nd dish for the ring to cool in but that was just my preference.

  1. Pour a mixture of seed beads into a small dish. You don’t want to use too big a dish because you want the beads to be close together .
  2. Turn the plug inside out , so when you slide it on your finger the solid part stands up against your finger.
  3. Add hot glue to the solid part that will be facing out. You want a lot of glue.
  4. Quickly dip it into the beads, gently press it into them.
  5. Let dry! It’s that easy. Just remember to let it dry completely before wearing it.

Shop from the comfort of your own home

Building Blocks

Are you looking for unusual baby gifts? Something creative and educational but fun at the same time. I found these fabulous interlocking blocks on The Travelling Souk, their bright colours caught my eye so I decided to read up about them. They make impressive unique gifts due to their quality and hone basic motor skills and promotes creativity. The child can build castles and towers, make flowers and gardens and even put together letters and words.

I was so intrigued by the products on The Travelling Souk I spent hours looking at some of their unique gift ideas, there are gifts for everyone, any age group and gender, from household gifts, toys, clothing, jewellery to wedding gifts, gifts for men and gardening.

The best part about shopping on their on line store is the convenience of shopping in the comfort of your own home without having to walk the high street for hours. You can do all your shopping under ‘one roof’.

Start Christmas shopping early!

Start your Christmas shopping early and avoid the stress and rush of last minute shopping. Are you looking for unusual ideas for your little one or your niece or nephew? Tired of giving them the same gifts as everyone else gives? Perhaps you are looking for something fun and educational for a friend’s child.

I have sourced some fabulous gifts for babies on The Travelling Souk and online boutique also having exceptional unique baby gifts. They have some super gift ideas such as this Pull along rabbit  which is just the cutest toy for little ones to enjoy!

Thanks to its big rear wheels and small front ones, this rabbit really looks as if it’s hopping along as it follows you. With its very large bright pink ears, cute face and white button tail, it’s very happy chasing the attached carrot as you pull it behind you. It even has a little bell so you don’t lose it in the cabbage patch. Best of all, you never have to clean out its hutch! This wooden pull along rabbit measures 14cm long, 12cm high and 8cm wide
