How to Make a Simple Homemade Mother’s Day Card for Kids

Fold a piece of construction paper in half vertically and cut along the line. Each half will make an individual Mother’s Day card. Have your child dip his or her thumb into a chosen paint color. I found it best to pour out a few paint colors onto a disposable paper plate so that the kids could easily grab colors with their thumbs.

Help your child press his or her thumb onto the construction paper in a circular pattern, creating flower petals. Your child may need to dip his thumb into the paint more than once before completing the flower.

Next, cut out a small piece of green construction paper to make the stem. Glue the stem beneath the flower petals.

If your child knows how to write, let him or her write a message above the flower. Otherwise, write a short message such as “Happy Mother’s Day!” to finalize your simple homemade Mother’s Day card!
