Copy-Free Mother’s Day Card!

It’s been ages since I last posted on this blog, and as usual, I’m fashionably late to the Mother’s Day craft ideas – but in my defence, the last week or so has been absolutely CRAZY. There’s been so much going on, and finding the time to sit down and create something new for Mother’s Day had to take a back-seat.

But not this weekend!

I’ve filmed a tutorial for this fun, pop-up-like Mother’s Day card, which can do double duty as a thank you card or just a fun general purpose card that kids can make. I made a variation of this card with Grade 1/2 students earlier in the week and the best part is this is completely copy free. (That’s right, no arguments with the photocopier and coloured cardstock!)

Materials:

  • Coloured cardstock in a variety of colours
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Pencil
  • Markers (optional)

How to:

This is an easy-to-modify card that can be used in lots of different ways. I hope that it inspires you to create your own interpretations on the more traditional Mother’s Day cards.

Have a wonderful weekend (especially to all the mums out there)!
