Craft activities for Mother's Day

06 March 2019 By Amelia Clutton, Category Buyer - Arts, Crafts and Creative Textiles


Getting children to make take home gifts to coincide with key events is a great way to build relationships with parents. If you wanted to, you could even use this as a fundraising activity and ask parents to buy their child’s creation. With Mother’s Day coming up soon, we’ve provided a couple of fun craft activities you could do with children for this.
