Looking for a unique way to celebrate Grandmother's day? An activity that not only involves the little ones but also results in a special, sentimental gift? You've come to the right place. In this article, we detail a number of wonderful and easy-to-follow craft ideas that will add a touch of love to the special day.
Handmade Cardboard Art
One of the most delightful ways to show your grandmother how much you cherish her is through a handmade cardboard art piece. You'll need cardboard, natural materials such as leaves, flowers, green herbs, a black marker, scissors, and craft glue. Following simple instructions, cut animal figures from the cardboard, outline these shapes with the marker, and apply the natural elements on the figures. The end result will be truly unique and heartwarming.
Mini Garden Craft
Another engaging and simple craft is creating a mini garden. The materials required are wooden skewers, floral cupcake molds, photos of grandchildren, craft glue, a flower pot, moss or fake moss, adhesive sticker, a black marker, scissors, and floral foam. The process involves cutting photos into circle shapes, folding and cutting cupcake molds to create flower petals, assembling with skewers, and arranging in the flower pot.
Handprint Jewelry Plate
Why not create a handmade sentiment that she can use every day, like a jewelry dish in the shape of a grandchild's handprint? Gather air-dry clay, a cutting mat, a rolling pin, washable paint, a heart-shaped cookie cutter, a pencil, an X-Acto knife, parchment paper, a water bowl, a cotton swab, and a small glass bowl. Roll out the clay, trace the handprint, cut it out, and smooth any imperfections. Cut out a heart from extra clay and attach it to the handprint. Shape the fingers using the glass bowl and allow it to dry.
Easy Grandmother Drawing
Drawing a portrait of grandmother might be a fun activity for kids. All it takes is outlining the face, drawing the hair and glasses, the mouth and nose, the blouse, adding hands, a skirt and feet, and finally adding color. It's easy and enjoyable!
Pop-Up Card for Grandmother’s Day
Let's not forget the traditional grandmother's day card. This can be easily crafted by folding a sheet of paper, tracing half of a preferred shape (a heart, for example), cutting along the shape, folding along the uncut part to create a pop-up effect, and decorating it.
Personalized Flower Pot
A personalized flower pot can also be a great gift idea. You will need a child-friendly washable paint kit, terracotta pots, craft glue, a foam brush, and embellishments such as mini pom poms and plush wire sticks. Paint the pot, glue on the pom poms and create a rainbow design with the colorful wire sticks.
