These cute ideas have been sourced from the pleasure-garden that is Pinterest. If you are already signed on you can follow Fundraising Mums here but for everyone else, I have collated some of the best ideas for you here, as inspiration for a Mothers’ Day stall or bazaar or something kids can make in-class. Where the original article can be found and credited, I have provided the appropriate links.
Sock Cupcakes: not only do they look cute but they are practical and calorie-free and are made with a pair of fluffy bed socks wrapped around a lipstick or bottle of nail polish.
Blow me a Kiss: take a photo of the children pretending to blow a kiss and then decorate a small canvas or piece of card with a sky blue background and little love hearts.
Mini terrariums: what mum wouldn’t love a little garden she can keep on her desk or window sill.
Abstract mugs: these are made with plain white mugs and some nail polish.
Cookies in a jar: Not only do these look beautiful when decorated with some pretty fabric and ribbons, but (hopefully) the kids can help mum later bake a batch of delicious biscuits.
Homemade sugar scrubs: easy to make and they smell delicious
Homemade bath bombs: anything that encourages kids to get in the bath is probably going to be appreciated by mums.
Photo Booth: if you are having a Mothers’ Day event at school, why not set up a photo booth with props such as giant hearts and signs that say ‘I love you Mum’ or ‘Happy Mothers Day’ and invite the kids and their mums to take photos together (or do it prior and turn the pictures into cards).
