Need help thinking outside of the box for gift ideas for Mothers Day ? With store closures and social distancing restrictions in place why not get creative and make Mum that special gift to say thankyou …

Here are 5 fun ideas to keep the kids entertained and create a meaningful gift for ‘Mum’

Shrink Art Charm Key Chain

Shrinkies are a way to capture a moment in time and create a sentimental gift for your special Mother. Use a permanent marker to trace around your childs hand and let them decorated inside the outline. Or try drawing a heart and decorating the inside of the heart. Cut out around the outside of the outline in an oval or circle shape, pop a quick hole into the top and bake in the oven. The Shink Art will shrink down 40% and become 9 times as thick! A great little (and durable) charm to create a special key ring for Mum to enjoy.

Magiclay Bracelet with Spaghetti String

Magiclay is a fantastic air drying product that children can use to create their very own beads by rolling small pieces and putting a hole through the centre with a skewer (or similar) . Left over night to air dry these beads are great for threading onto spaghetti String and can become a lovely bracelet or necklace for Mum

The great thing about Magiclay is that it can be moulded into any shape of any size … the options are endless . Why not make mum a hand made flower to with her hand made gift ? Feeling creative … Why not create a whole bouquet of flowers ?
