Looking for a fun and easy Homemade Mother’s Day Gift that your kids can make? These bright and cheerful Painted Flower Pots will bring a smile to any mom’s face!

Painted Flower Pots

Every year it seems like a challenge to come up with a gift for my mom and for Keith’s mom for Mother’s Day. These are two ladies who never ask for anything and always say that there’s nothing they need. I do know, however, that each of these grandmothers would appreciate anything that is handmade by their grandsons. That’s why I put my boys to work this year!


I picked up some plain clay pots from Lowe’s, pulled out the acrylic paints, and let the kids do the rest.



They each put their special touches on the two pots before we left them to dry.





And the finishing touch: fresh flowers in each pot!



Happy Mother’s Day to all of the amazing moms (and grandmothers) out there!
