mothersday.jpgMother's Day is this weekend and you know you've got to do something special to let your Mom know how much she means to you. I have searched high and low for a variety of fun crafts to share with you guys because moms always love something from the heart. We've got a nice list of links with free instructions for a variety of projects and a variety of age ranges. Even if you are the Mom, pick what you like and give the kids some serious hints. I'm thinking an activity station set up with a few of these crafts would be a fun way to get the kids started. Any of these crafts would be a great way to show how much you appreciate your Mom.

Free Kids Crafts always has a ton of great crafts. They've got a project for every age range on their Mother's Day Crafts page. There is definitely something for everyone here.

For older kids, these accordion albums would be a perfect crafty project. This could easily be done with younger kids with some help. They even have some sayings already created in PDF form to make it even easier on you! Great craft for scrapbooking enthusiasts and they are super cute!

This blog has some great gift ideas you can make for Mom's who enjoy gardening. Nice suggestions including a homemade garden kneeler and a decorated watering can.

I really like the step-by-step photos to guide you through this really nice handmade heart and flower themed Mother's Day card. This is a nice project for any age range.

If you have plans to do a little baking for Mom this year, these printable gift tags and cupcake decorations are super cute and perfect for making your treats even prettier.

The simplicity of this printable bookmark template is really nice. Any age can do this project and the results are cute and perfect for the Mom who loves reading.

These last two aren't crafts, but fun ways to get the kids excited about celebrating how great their Mom is!

This video on YouTube for The Mom Song is super cute and a really gets at what makes Moms so special!

Spelling City created a vocabulary list just for Mother's Day. Get the kids practicing words associated with the day with worksheets, flash cards, games, and a vocab test!

If you've got other ideas, activities, or crafts definitely share them in the comments section. Happy Mother's Day to all you amazing Moms, I hope you have a truly special day.
