Mother's & Father's Day Crafts
Mother's Day Crafts
It's a simple truth: you can buy your mum one-hundred boxes of chocolate, but nothing will put a smile on her face more than a handmade gift. If you're a dab hand at all things home made, you'll sure to have built up your own mini database of different mother's day craft ideas to draw inspiration from, but if you're struggling to get started, dive into the pages of Crafts Beautiful for a quick jolt of creativity. We make it our mission to include as many innovative, original and easy-to-make mother's day crafts for you to try, including simple tutorials on how to make mother's day cards, so everything from the present to the gift-tag is created completely by you. Now, that's got to be better than a shop-bought box of choccies – and calorie-free to boot!
Father's Day Crafts
As all women will attest, buying gifts for men is one of life's cruelties. So why not dodge the department stores this June, and instead go DIY and get stuck into father's day crafts? Crafts Beautiful magazine is your bible for all things handmade; flick through our countless father's day craft ideas, father's day cards to make and father's day crafts for kids – we've got it all covered! We even include handy guides on where to find the best father's day craft products, so you don't have to scour the high street to find exactly the right decoupage kit or chipboard motifs which will set your designs off beautifully. It's everything you've ever dreamed of – finding presents for men without the stress! And lots of our project ideas use up the materials lurking in the bottom of your stash, so there's no need to re-stock for a bout of father's day crafting.
Craft Ideas for Preschoolers
For parents everywhere, mother's and father's day isn't just when you show your own mum and dad how much you appreciate them; you've also got to organise your kids with presents to give to your other half. But instead of buying the same old tie or bath set, why not tear the sprogs away from the television and use the occasion as an opportunity to get creative? If the thought of a kiddie crafting session conjures up a dreadful montage of paint-strewn walls, clay-matted hair and PVA on every surface from your kitchen to Timbuktu, calm those first-timer nerves, for CB is at your service! Every year, we round up all the very best mother's day crafts for children, as well as father's day cards for kids to make and everything else in between. If this isn't your first venture into crafting with the kids, we also throw in a few more adventurous projects amidst the super easy father's and mother's day cards for children to make. But even if you're a veteran crafter with decades of experience, our three golden rules for kiddie crafting should always be obeyed: hair tied back, aprons on (use bin bags if you haven't got any!) and newspaper on every surface in a 15 metre radius!
