A girl uses Sphero littleBits to create a gift idea for her mom.

Mom. Mommy. Mama. Whatever name you call her, she’s truly a special woman. This Mother’s Day we know you want to make her feel extra loved. Why not show her with an awesome and unique Mother’s Day gift idea that you invent? It’s genuine, personal, and engineered with love, specifically by you.

Sphero and littleBits to Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Here are three ideas for inventions and crafts that let mom know you love her, and you’re super grateful for everything she does for you.

1.) Program your BOLT to display a Mother’s Day message

Matrix animations on Sphero BOLT are a fun way to create a personalized gift for anyone, including Moms on Mother's Day.

This invention not only puts your BOLT’s LED matrix to the test, but it gives you the opportunity to uniquely showcase your love for your Mom with endless creativity. Light up her day with a heart, rose, or smiley face. Get creative and show off your coding skills!

2.) Make handmade flowers with littleBits

Store-bought flowers are beautiful, but they eventually die, and they might make her sneeze! Try making your own flowers, spinning hearts, and blinking lights for an ultra-awesome Mother’s Day bouquet that she will never forget. Pair basic craft materials and a few littleBits and voila! A colorful garden for mom. The best part? These won’t wilt after a few days. She can enjoy them for several weeks. 

3.) Design unique Mother’s Day artwork

Putting your love to paper sometimes is all you need to make your mom’s day. With this crazy cool spirograph invention you can create amazing spiral shapes to make crafts that are “fridge showcase” worthy. 

Sphero Spirograph artwork is a unique gift idea for Mother's Day.

There are countless ways to celebrate your mom and show her how much you appreciate everything she does for you. We know that 24 hours isn’t enough time to truly express what she means to you, but as long as you make sure to put mom #1 on your priority list that day, we know she will feel celebrated.

From all of us at Sphero, thank you, moms, for everything you do for your kids. We wouldn't be doing what we do to inspire without you raising the creators of tomorrow.
