Fun & Easy Mother’s Day Flower Craft (free printable template)

Mother's Day Flower Craft Card from That Homeschool Family

Looking for an fun & easy craft the kids can put together as a Mother’s Day gift for mom? Or Grandma? My free Mother’s Day flower craft has you covered! Not only can it serve as a meaningful gift, but it can also help to encourage fine motor skill development, handwriting skills, spelling, and more!

Having been a mom for longer than I can believe (how am I old enough to be raising tweens?!), I can honestly tell you that I totally love receiving gifts that come from the heart more than gifts that come from a store. A new purse or pair of shoes are always welcome in my closet, but it’s the handmade gifts that have really tugged at the heartstrings.

When my kids were in public school, they’d always come home with some handmade gift for the various holidays throughout the year. I’d get a handmade ornament for Christmas, grown-from-seed flowers at Mother’s Day…and I totally looked forward to those gifts made with love.

Now that we’re a homeschool family, though? We gotta take over the task of providing the materials & time for producing such tear-inducing gifts.

Can we just send them back so they can make the gifts?

I’m just kidding.

When May is on the horizon, we just have to remember that Mother’s Day is coming up! The free printable template I’m sharing with you today makes for a great Mother’s Day gift or mom, grandma, an aunt…you name it!

This is one flower craft template you’re going to love having in your ever-expanding Google drive of free templates!

About this Mother’s Day Flower Craft

After you download the free PDF template, you’ll get all the directions and such, but, just in case you’re wondering “how much time is this gonna take out of our day?,” keep on reading!

1 PDF, 4 Possibilities!

I am not about to leave anyone in the dark with this craft! Within the PDF, you’ll have the option to make a card or make a full-page craft…or make both! Both the card & full page crafts also come with two options: with the name “mom” included or blank, no name.

Y’all. I don’t know if your kids call you Mother, Mommy, Mom, Mama, or Murgatroyd…probably not that, but…I don’t know! I also don’t know if you want to use this flower craft to make a sweet project for Grandma, Grammy, Glam-ma, Aunt Liz, Uncle Sam, Cousin Grace, or your next door neighbor.

Everyone deserves a sweet, handmade gift and that, ladies & gentlemen, is why I’ve provided you with a “no-name” option, m’kay?

Supplies Needed

This printable flower craft is going to be super easy on your wallet! Not only am I providing the template to you for free fifty free, but you likely already have all of the materials needed to complete the project:

  • a printer (or someone/place to print for you)
  • paper (I used cardstock, but feel free to use printer paper if that’s whatcha got)
  • scissors
  • glue or tape…something adhesive
  • crayons or colored pencils (could use markers, but I don’t like how they tend to bleed through the paper)
  • pencil or pen

2 Parts Per Project

Ok, so, to complete the project, the kids will need to have a total of 2 pages printed per project. Each completed project will have a “top” page and a “bottom” page.

The top page is all coloring. On this page, the kids will color the center and each petal of the flower for the craft. Each petal has a sentence starter that will be completed on the bottom page. The sentence starters included are:

  • Thank you for always
  • I love when you
  • You make me happy when
  • You’re the best
  • You make me laugh when
  • I love when we

The bottom page is some coloring and some writing. Each flower petal on the bottom page has 4 lines so the kids can write the ending to the sentence starter that’s on the top flower petal. When the top flower petal is flipped, the recipient will be able to see the end of the sentence underneath.

(I swear it’s not as complex as I’m making it sound)

Time Needed

The amount of time needed to complete this craft is totally going to depend on your children – their attention level, their love (or hate) of coloring, etc. My kids, ages 10 & 12, each took around 20 minutes to complete their projects from start to finish.

Since this Mother’s Day flower craft has 2 main parts, coloring & writing, you could always split the activity into 2 sessions (or more, depending on your child’s needs).

If you really want to extend the Mother’s Day fun past the 20 minutes, or if the kids need some movement breaks, you could totally try playing some of these Mother’s Day themed Minute to Win it games from my friend Aquita over at Fun Party Tips! The games are played with common household items and are sure to result in a ton of laughs and memory making!
