Personalised Handbag for Mother’s Day

This craft is an excellent way to get a toddler to explore their senses with different material and make a lovely gift of a personalised handbag for Mother’s day.

You will need:

  • Different coloured paper and card
  • Paint and brushes
  • Felt tip pens
  • Buttons, glitter, sequences, jewel and star stickers
  • Children’s safety scissor
  • Glue and sellotape


  • Pick the colour you would like your handbag to be. On the large colour sheet of card draw you handbag shape and include a handle.
  • Draw a mirror image of the handbag underneath and cut out the shape.
  • Fold the cut out shape in half so the two handles match on top of one another.
  • Tape along the two sides, to close the edges of the bag and glue the handles to on another leaving the top of the bag open.
  • Cut out and oval of paper and fold over the top of the bag and stick a coloured button as shown in the picture above.
  • Decorate the handle of the bag with the sticker, glitter and jewels.
  • Draw a design similar to the circles in the picture and use paint or felt tip pen to colour in.
  • Leave a personal message inside your bag for your Mum.

Have fun with this activity and we recommend adult supervision at all times.
