Over the next couple of weeks I am going to try and post some ideas for Mothers Day cards and crafts. We have done quite a few different things over the years for my sister from her children, so I have lots of cute ideas for the kids to try! These ideas could also be adapted and used for extra special birthday cards!
One of our favourite Mothers Day card ideas is to use a hand print and finger prints to form a pretty flower. I first did this a few years ago and it is currently a very popular choice in schools and daycare settings, as it is super simple so even young kids and babies can do it with a little supervision.
To make your hand print card you will need – folded piece of card in your colour choice (we used orange), paint in different colours including green and yellow, and pretty paper / cellophane for the pot.
1 – Begin by painting your hand green, but leaving the fingertips and thumb tip. Paint the tips in yellow.
2 – Print down onto the front of your folded piece of card.
3 – Use your finger to print down petal shapes around each yellow circle print. You can use the same colour or different colours. These will be the petals of your flowers!
4 – Add a flower pot to the bottom of your plant using glue. We used a square cut from cellophane for ours.
5 – Now leave to dry, add a greeting inside and ta – da – one beautiful Mothers Day card ready to go to a very deserving lady!
A lovely simple card which Mum will love!
