Tote Bag Mother’s Day Craft For Kids

Handprint Tote Bag

Right in time for Mother’s Day I made this Mother’s Day Craft For Kids with my kids so we could send it to my Mum in England. It’s a handprint tote bag and is light enough to send, personal and inexpensive. Sometimes I find that Grandmas are hard to buy for as they have everything but when I saw the tote I knew we had to personalize it with my kids handprints and footprints but I wanted something different which is when I decided on handprint under the sea ideas!

To me it’s a perfect Grandma gift for Mother’s Day or for a Dad to make with the kids! Homemade Mothers Day presents can range from really simple to extravagant but if your Mum is anything like mine something that the kids have made is always well appreciated. This Mothers Day craft for kids will run you way under $5. In fact you can get tote bags from the dollar store and paints for less than $1.
