DIY Mother's Day Card For Preschoolers

By Sinea Pies

As our preschool school year drew to a close, I still had lessons for the letters Y and Z left to complete. Z is for Zoo was the theme of choice for the last day of school but I was still struggling with what to do for Y.

Mother's Day was right around the corner. Y week? Z week? I elected to combine Mother's Day and Y  and do the Letter Y is for Yellow.  We studied the primary colors and learned what secondary colors were formed when we combined them. There was time in the lesson to fit in a nice craft  so we also made this adorable cupcake liner card for the moms.

The card is printed on colored card stock. For my sample copy, I used yellow-green and green crayon to fill in the foliage. The flower is a bright colored cupcake liner, turned inside out so that the colorful part shows. The sides of the liners are clipped so the flower will spread out better.

In the center I glued a yellow circle and attached some dried blackbeans inside for seeds.

Inside the card is another liner with the child's photo in the center. (The SAMPLE I made for my students to see has a picture of me but our moms got to have their precious little child's picture inside of theirs.)

I love how the paper cupcake liner stands out a little bit for a 3-D effect.

  • Print the words "Happy Mother's Day" and an outline of stem & leaves on cardstock on the right side of the paper.
  • Fold the paper in half so that the words and image are on the front of the card.
  • Color the stem and foliage.
  • Turn two cupcake liners inside out.
  • Clip the acordion outsides of the liners so that they separate a bit to form petals.
  • Gluestick the centers of the liners.

    • One goes on top of the stem on the front.
    • The second one goes inside the card on the right.
  • On the front, gluestick the yellow circle into the center of the cupcake liner.
  • Squeeze some dots of Elmer's glue on the circle and attach a few "seeds" (blackbeans)
  • Allow the seeds to dry for a few minutes.
  • Inside the card, glue the child's picture in the center of the other cupcakeliner.
  • Have the child to use crayons to write a message to mom and sign it.

There you have it, a work of art!
