Kid Made Mother’s Day Cards

Don’t buy your Mother’s Day cards this year. Instead, put on some aprons and make your cards instead! This is such a super fun way to make kid made mother’s day cards that children will love to make and moms will love to get!  Part of what I love about projects like this is how excited my kids get when their grandmothers open these handmade creations.  They can’t wait to tell them all about it and these are the memories that they will carry with them long after they have their own kids.  Besides, it’s fun to play with paint (even if it gets messy).

Step 1

Cut out the flat part of the Styrofoam container.

Tip:

  • I cut mine on a regular cutting board to keep from messing up my table and table cloth.

Step 2

Next, cut that in half so that it is about the size of the front of your cards.

Tip:

  • If you want, you can trim up the edges to make them neater but it is not necessary.

Step 3

Give one piece of foam and one mechanical pencil to each child and let them go nuts designing whatever they want. 

Tips:

  • For my 2 year old, I took the lead out of the pencil because she kept clicking the lead out and you want to use a blunt edge on the foam.  
  • My oldest tried to write his name on the foam but since he’s 6, he doesn’t get the whole you have to write it backwards on a stamp concept.  But the prints turn out very artistic either way so don’t stress if this happens to you.

Step 5

Next, stamp it onto the front of the card.  Do this for as many cards as you need and then just rinse off with hot water.  The best part is that you can save it and reuse it as many times as you want.

Step 6

You can write a message on the inside of the card, or if your child is writing have him or her personalize it with their own message. Now just wait to see the delight on faces when this card is opened!

These will mean so much more to everyone involved than anything you’ll find on a store shelf! You can make as many cards as you need and mom or grandma can frame the unique artwork to hang on the wall. Kids will be so proud to be a part of the opening and excited to see it every time they visit. You will love that this is a much cheaper option than store bought especially if you have lots of grandparents to surprise on Mother’s Day!

I’m a nerdy, crafty mom of three adorable little kids. I love writing and creating, but in my non-existent free time I also love karaoke, taking my kids to the zoo, and reading. I got my degree in Science (no idea how that happened) but I took every English class I could get my hands on because, yeah, I’m that girl.
