#9 Flower Wreath

Felt, pom-poms, and the secret ingredient — egg cartons! — are transformed into a beautiful wreath you can display all spring and summer long. Making the flowers and letting them dry, then gluing them to the wreath and adding the pom-pom centers is a multi-step process, so this is better for older (and more patient) crafters.

#10 Thumbprint Planter

The petals on this planter are also made from a child's thumbprint. The end result is both pretty enough to display in the garden, and a meaningful snapshot of how small their little hands can be.

#11 Picture-Frame Vase

Acrylic paint can turn any jar into a planter that Mom would love to put on a table or a shelf. But leave a heart-shaped opening for a baby picture (clear contact paper helps you from accidentally painting in the heart area), and the project becomes extra special.

A personalized, one-of-a kind monogram that's also easy to make? A win for everyone involved. Hint: If your little artist is messy with the glue, craft glue dots are basically made for this type of project.

#15 DIY Herb Garden

The secret to this project is finding chalkboard paint in fun colors, like pink or purple, so you can label the herbs and still have a pretty pot to put them all in. Then, tending the herb garden with the kids is a fun activity the family can do together all summer long.
