The Made for More Project is back with another round of easy STEAM projects. With Mother’s Day just a few weeks away we found 6 Lovely STEAM Gift Ideas just for Mom! So let’s get started!
First off if you are the mom reading this post, stop now and send it to your significant other (I promise you won’t want to spoil the surprise). Or better yet enjoy making some of these keepsake projects with your kids and you’ll have double the fun!
We find that the best way to treat mom on Mother’s Day begins before she even gets out of bed, so let her get those extra ZZZ’s, believe me, it’s what all moms want if they have little ones (or early birdies)! Then when she has risen from her beauty sleep bring joy to her special day with these Mother’s Day food ideas, for that breakfast in bed surprise! Let kids be culinary artists (with adult or teen supervision of course) while making these cute butterfly pancakes from Nate and Rachel. Then add in an easy and thoughtful snack or dessert idea too from Kiddie Foodies, to show just how much you “love her”!
Next, what mother doesn’t love flowers! We found these great STEAM flower projects that will bring a little crystal and shine to her special bouquet. With only a few ingredients and in 24 hours time your kids will be able to make a whole Crystal Flower Bouquet from Little Bins for Little Hands. Keeping with the flower theme check out this fantastic Circuit Flower arrangement from STEAM Powered Family, that uses all aspects of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math.
How else do you tell your mom you love her…with a card of course! This beautifully creative paper art crafts can make that perfect Mother’s Day card or cut to any shape to make gift tags for all the special gifts you’ll be making mom. This rainbow paper heart from Science Kiddo, is beautiful and easy for kids to make. Or take a gander at this creative Paint Glue Salt Paper from Nurture Store UK, there is so much science and art happening that you’ll find you’re learning and having fun all in one!
To round out our 6 Lovely STEAM Gift Ideas for Mother’s Day, we have a couple of great useable gift ideas. These swirly painted art rocks from Meri Cherry, work great as a paperweight mom can use to sprucin' up her office or make that pile of bills look fantastic (just kidding we know bills never look fantastic). Or why not make them with small rocks and hot glue some magnets on them and mom can use them to display all those fantastic school projects you make throughout the year! Finally, why not make her a special painting to hang and remind her of how much she is loved all year-round with this Tissue Paper Artwork from It's Always Autumn.
We are sure that with these 6 lovely STEAM Gift Ideas you will make your mom feel special and loved on Mother’s Day. So grab an adult, some supplies and get to crafting! Then share with us how you’re projects turned out we would love to hear from you!
