Like most moms, I’d love nothing more than extra time to myself for Mother’s Day, but I also look forward to the adorable crafts and handmade cards from the kids that come my way. Seeing their excitement over something they’ve made is beyond contagious and gets me happy every time. But wouldn’t it be icing on the cake if we did get something from the kids that is not only cute and crafty, but also something we’d use for ourselves around the home? Things like pretty painted bead necklaces, sparkly crystal bowls, or painted canvases to brighten up the room, to name a few. Here are 50+ fantastic ideas that combine cute + crafty with many functional, stylish and pretty handmade gifts from the kids.
