Mother’s Day will be here soon and there is no better gift to give than a handmade one from the heart.

If your little one is in need of a gift for Mom this holiday, Home Depot locations are offering a free, hands-on workshop called “Blooming Art” from 9 a.m. – noon on Saturday, May 4. You and your children can build and decorate a flowery craft together.

All workshop attendees must be accompanied by a parent or adult at all times and must sign up in advance. To attend, just go to Home Depot’s website, enter your zip code, select your local store, then scroll down to register.

All kids get to keep their craft, so they can gift it or display it. They’ll also receive a free certificate of achievement, a workshop apron and a commemorative pin, while supplies last.

If you’d rather stay home with your little one to create a Mother’s Day craft this year, you can make some pretty adorable artwork by simply painting the bottom of your child’s feet. Press feet onto a canvas to create flowers or a bunny shape. Or use them on a pot and turn the image into a butterfly. The possibilities are endless and it’s all incredibly easy — though you may have a bit of a mess to clean up.

Another gift perfect for moms is a bouquet of flowers. But if you want them to last longer and keep your kids busy for a while, try these DIY flowers made out of coffee filters. This project is quick, cheap and fun. And, if you drink coffee, chances are you already have most of the materials you’ll need. If you don’t have coffee filters, you can also use tissue paper for a similar look.

The holiday is coming soon, but there’s still time to think about what Mom wants. Would this be a good gift from your kid on Mother’s Day?
