Mother’s Day Gift Ideas for Kids of All Ages: From Toddlers to Elementary School Children

With Mother’s Day quickly approaching, it’s time to start thinking about how to make this day extra special for the amazing moms in our lives. At Montessori House for Children and Elementary School, we understand the importance of celebrating moms and showing our appreciation for all that they do.  In this article we’ll share some great Mother’s Day gift ideas for kids of all ages.

From our toddler program to our early childhood and elementary school programs, we incorporate activities and lessons that emphasize the value of this special day. Our students of all ages prepare for Mother’s Day by creating hand-made gifts and cards, planning special activities, and learning about the history and cultural traditions of the holiday. 

Getting young children involved in preparing for Mother’s Day is a wonderful way to teach them about appreciation and love.

Even the littlest kids can participate in creating unique gifts or gestures to show Mom how much she’s loved.

Handmade Cards           
Encourage your child to create a personalized card. Draw pictures, use stickers, and write a heartfelt message inside.

Flower Bouquet
Collect flowers from your garden or go for a walk and gather wildflowers to create a beautiful bouquet.

Homemade Treats
Bake cookies, muffins or cupcakes with your child. This is an excellent opportunity to spend quality time together and create a sweet treat for Mom.

Let your child’s creativity flow and have them create a painting or drawing. They can use watercolors, crayons or colored pencils to make a masterpiece.

Coupon Book
Help your child create a coupon book with special offers for Mom, such as “Free Hugs,” “Breakfast in Bed,” “Help with Chores,” or “Movie Night.”

As children grow older, they become more adept at creating gifts that reflect their appreciation for their mothers. Here are some meaningful gift ideas from children ages 6-12 that will make any mom feel loved and appreciated.

Photo Album
Create a photo album with pictures of special moments shared with Mom. Add captions and decorate the album to make it extra special.

Personalized Jewelry
Design a custom piece of jewelry for Mom, such as a necklace or bracelet with her name or initials.

Spa Day
Plan a spa day, complete with a homemade facial mask, a foot soak, and a massage. Children can take on the role of spa technicians and pamper Mom.

Homemade Coupon Book
Similar to the coupon book for younger children, a coupon book with special offers such as “A Day Without Chores,” “A Night of Babysitting,” or “A Home-Cooked Meal” will be appreciated by any mom.

Handmade Home Décor
Create a piece of home decor, such as a painted vase, a decorated picture frame, or a hand-sewn pillow. 

The best of all Mother’s Day gift ideas is quality time with Mom. Creating special memories and enjoying each other’s company is the ultimate way to show love and appreciation for all that she does. So, from all of us here at Montessori House for Children and Elementary School, we wish you a Happy Mother’s Day!
