How to Make a Mother’s Day Flower Pot
You will need:
Print off the Mother’s Day Flower Pot tags by clicking HERE. They print six tags to a page, so if you need more than one, or if the kids want to help cut them out and mess one up, you have back-up. I’d suggest printing these tags on heavy cardstock paper so they won’t bend and tear so easily.
Use a hole punch to punch a hole in the top of the tag where the small circle is printed. I looped a piece of yarn through the hole and tied it to a paper clip and pressed the paper clip into the soil to it stayed put, and it worked well.
Which plants are a good choice to use?
There are several different ways to choose which plants will be a good fit. Look at some of these ideas for inspiration:
- What is mom’s favorite flower? If it’s easily accessible, then maybe choose that as your plant of choice.
- Will the plant be kept indoors or out? If it’s indoors you will likely need to choose a shade, or part shade plant type (check the tags on the plants to find out before you buy).
- Does she like flowers? If she’s not a huge fan, maybe you can consider succulents or herbs instead?
- Does she have a green thumb? If not, then maybe get a hardy plant that can handle being mistreated or forgotten like a succulent, herb, or flowers like geraniums and gerbera daisies.

Which flowers grow well in a pot?
While there are tons of flowers that grow well in a pot, remember that all plants grow so will need plenty of room to expand. Don’t overfill your pots or you will need to move them soon.
