Don’t panic; there’s still time! If your children are looking for a great card to make for Mom, here’s one that just requires paper, scissors, glue and their imagination. The extent of your involvement depends upon their ability to use scissors safely.
Have children draw large, simple shapes on colored paper—ideally archival—and cut them out. Then have them paste the pieces onto the front of a piece of cardstock paper that has been folded in half like a traditional card. Once glued, they can add decorative touches to the front and personalize the inside of the card.
The finished card is a wonderful sample of their creativity (and your caring assistance) that Mom will cherish.
Happy Mother’s Day!
