Mother’s Day craft ideas for kids

Mother’s Day is just around the corner and kids always love to create something unique for their mothers. Your toddlers must also be preparing something to surprise you on Mother’s Day. Montessori San Dimas, CA, the team believes there is nothing like a homemade/handmade Mother’s Day gift to show their love for you. So, before the D-day, teachers are keeping their pre-schoolers busy in different art and craft activities. Below they are sharing some of the fun and easy craft activities your kids can indulge in while they are at home.
