Looking for Mother’s Day gift ideas for a mother of preschoolers? Those are the ladies on the front lines of motherhood! Preschool Mother’s Day gift ideas need to come from two directions: the children’s appreciation of Mom, and Dad’s appreciation of Mom.
Preschool Mother’s Day Gifts from the Kids
For a little one in preschool, Mother’s Day gifts are all about something you do yourself. Little kids just want to be able to give something from their hearts and from their own little hands. Here are several ideas of easy things that kids can make (with just a little help) and give to Mom.
Jewelry — String Cheerios or Fruit Loops onto yarn to make a necklace for Mom.
Art — Let children have free range to make a work of art for mom. Get all different coloring mediums (markers, colored pencils, crayons) and allow them to create their art. Then ask them about what they have done. (Don’t try to guess. Let them tell you about their creation.)
A Letter or Video Message for Mom — Allow child to dictate a letter to you, or use your smartphone to make a video of the child telling Mom how much he loves and appreciates her.
A Book for Mom — Using construction paper, a three-hole punch, and yarn, put together a book for Mom. Ask your child these questions:
- What does your mom like to do?
- What does your mom like to wear?
- What does your mom like to eat?
- Where does your mom like to go shopping?
- Where does your mom like to go for dinner?
- What is your mom’s favorite ice cream?
- Who is your mom’s best friend?
Put one question, with the child’s answer, on each page. Let the child draw a picture for each page, or take a picture of mom and attach to each page. (Check her phone, Facebook, and Instagram for pictures you can use.)
