Homemade gift for Grandma


Gifts do not always have to be expensive. In fact, I prefer a homemade gift because you know a lot of thought, time and effort has gone into it. I love to receive gifts from my children that they have made themselves and they also enjoy making gifts for family members too. A few weeks ago it was my Mum's birthday and the children made her these lovely flower pictures. As today is Mother's Day, I thought these pictures would also make a wonderful Mother's Day gift.


A4 card or paper
small pieces of tissue paper
PVA glue


First, get some PVA glue and tissue paper. We used a pack of tissue paper that came cut up into small squares, but you can also use large sheets of tissue paper that you can cut up or rip into smaller pieces yourself.


Next, draw a picture on some card or paper. The children chose this bright yellow card for their pictures.


Then, the children can screw up the pieces of tissue paper and stick them on the card to build up a beautiful, colourful picutre.


Here they are getting stuck in!


R loves using glue to stick things. He really enjoyed screwing up the tissue paper too.


Here is D's finished picture. She has a great attention span now so was able to complete the picture.


R's masterpiece.

  1. How beautiful are these gifts for grandma, what a great idea!

  2. Wow D really does have a great attention span! x

    1. Yes her attention has improved so much since the last time we tried this activity last year. Back then, I don't think she managed to complete much at all.

  3. These are great gifts from the little ones. And so inexpensive but with so much thought and love put in! xx
