Looking for a mother’s day Bible craft? This fun Mother’s day craft your kids will want to make comes with printable templates and a verse from Proverbs 31.
Our family reads a chapter of Proverbs or Psalms together every night after dinner. I love Proverbs–it’s so blunt, sometimes!
Proverbs 31:10-31 is a great passage for us moms, isn’t it? There’s lots of speculation about the Proverbs 31 woman, but we know for sure that this admirable wife loves her family and cares for them without complaint. That’s the kind of mom I want to be, don’t you?
I especially love the following verses:
Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come.
She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.
She looks well to the ways of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.
Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her…
Proverbs 31:25-28, ESV
Now, I used to feel bad about not always living up to being the woman described. But, as I’ve grown in the Lord and sought him in his Word, I sometimes feel like I can see myself becoming the kind of woman this passage describes.
Your children love you, and one day they will rise up and call their God-fearing mama blessed. How cool is that?
Mother’s Day Craft for Kids

Tips for Art Projects with Kids
Doing art projects with kids can be a challenge. For that reason, many parents forgo this valuable time altogether. As an art major and a parent who has done frequent art projects with my four children, I have a few suggestions for you.
- Cover your space. Use painting drop cloths and plastic to keep your furniture and flooring protected.
- Cover your kids. Grab a couple of your old T-shirts and throw them over your kids, buy them painting aprons, or designate clothes specifically for crafting.
- Do the prep work in advance. Do as much prep work for a project as you can before you get the kids involved. Not everything on the page needs to be their work. It’s OK to help.
- Schedule several short sessions for one project. Children need several days to be able to create larger projects. Art is time-consuming and requires energy.
- Encourage your kids. Children are likely to be frustrated by the disconnect in the artwork they envision and the art they actually create. Remind your kids that they improve every time they create, and tell them how much you love their work (even if you don’t know what it is!). Also, stick figures are fabulous.
- Operate the hot glue gun. Hot glue burns are terrible. Until your kids are old enough to cook, I’d advise you do the hot gluing.

1) Print your Mother’s Day craft template, instructions, and verse. Prepare your paper.
Prepare a background for the garden craft by cutting your sheet of cardstock to 8 1/2″ high. That will make your background a perfect square.
Print your craft templates, and cut them all out.
2) Make the grass.
Glue the grass cutouts along the bottom and sides.
Place the longer grass on the background paper, aligning the bottom side of the grass with the bottom side of the background paper. Then place the shorter grass on top, also aligning the bottom side with the background paper.
3) Make your flowers.
4) Attach your flowers to stems and glue them to the paper.
Note: For use with a classroom, you may wish to construct the flowers ahead of time.
5) Add your Bible verse (in ESV or KJV) to your Mother’s Day card.
Help Your Kids Learn and Love the Bible
You want your kids to learn and love the Bible.
You want to teach the Bible…
As parents, we deeply desire the best for our kids. We look for the right schools, we make them eat right and exercise, and we get them involved in extracurricular activities. We take our job as parents seriously.
But are we also putting our time and energy into
teaching them the Bible? Giving them the life-changing, soul-nourishing words of Scripture is not only doable, it’s an essential part of parenting kids for Jesus. And the good news is, studying God’s Word as a family doesn’t have to be difficult!
2 Timothy 2:15, ESV, says:
Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved,
a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.
Our job, as parents who love Jesus, is to help our kids become approved workers, unashamed and rightly handling the word of truth.
The good news? Teaching the Bible isn’t hard. Your family can learn the Bible together.
…and you can!
