Mother’s day is this Sunday 22nd March and we have put together some ideas to help your children create a lovely homemade card. Be as creative as possible and use any materials you have handy.

I love you because… flower

What you will need;

  • Card, or piece of paper
  • A variety of colour paper or card
  • Scissors
  • Pen

Step 1 – Fold your piece of paper or card in half

Step 2 – Draw a flower on your coloured paper… daisies are easy and pretty

Step 3 – Cut out the flowers individual pieces and cut out some leaves and a stem

Step 4 – Stick down your flower onto your card

Step 5 – Write down on each petal, and the middle of the flower all the reasons why you love your mum, or grandma, or that special person in your life that you want to give a mother’s day card too.

Finger print heart tree

What you will need; 

  • 2 sheets of white paper
  • ink pads or finger paints of any colour
  • black pen
  • scissors
  • pencil

Step 1 – Draw your heart shape, or cut it out a heart stencil

To create a heat stencil simply fold a sheet of paper in half and draw a half-heart shape

Step 2 – Place the sheet of paper with the heart outline on top of a regular sheet of white paper.

Step 3 – With a black marker, draw a tree within the heart shape

Step 4 – Dab your fingers (thumbs and fingertips to get different shapes) in the ink pads or finger paints and “stamp” them all over the heart shape. Do this until you are happy with how thick the leaves on the tree are. Draw the rest of the tree trunk, if necessary.

Step 5 – Remove the sheet of paper with the heart outline and then stick it on your card. Or if you have drawn this straight on to your card simply finish your card off with a lovely message.
