Mother’s Day Photo Frame


Easy Mother's Day crafts kids can make


  • Popsicle sticks– 2 large and 2 small – or you can use the same size
  • Puzzle pieces – if you have a puzzle missing pieces those are perfect to use. If not go to the dollar store for any puzzle
  • Glue
  • Picture of the child



  • Take the four popsicle sticks and glue them together in the corners.  If you use two size popsicle sticks then glue the smaller sticks an inch down from the top and about a half an inch up from the bottom.  This then puts the picture in the middle.
  • Then take the puzzle pieces and glue wherever you choose.
  • On one of the puzzle pieces write “I love you to pieces!”
  • Then take the picture and take to the back.
  • Ta-Dah!! A beautiful picture frame that mom will treasure.

  • Use the painters take to spell out letters on the canvas.  I did LOVE but you could do MOM as well.
  • Then paint over the tape with the color you choose.  If a younger child is painting I suggest only using one color, not four.
  • After painting one section with a certain color then continue to paint the other sections with the other paint colors.
  • Toddlers can use their fingers instead of a paintbrush.
  • When the paint is COMPLETELY dry then peel off the tape.
  • A beautiful painting that mom will display year after year.

    HI Rachel,
    I really like the crafts you suggested. I’m going to pass this along to my husband. I also really like that we have the same professional background. I was a special Ed teacher and worked for EI. The only reason I’m not doing it now, is because I became a SAHM.

    1. ExploreKidTalk says:

      I’m so glad you liked the crafts. Thank you. Definitely pass it along to your husband. Oh really, that’s so funny about our professional backgrounds. With EI I’m lucky enough to work part time.

      Thank you Brandy. Canvas painting are great as a decoration and as a gift. When you use tape on the canvas then even the little ones can make a fabulous piece of art work. Share this with a family member so maybe you can receive a canvas painting as a gift.

  3. These are so cute! I especially love the “love” one. 🙂
