This Sunday is Mother’s Day, it’s a day when we show our mums and grandmothers just how special they are and how much we love and appreciate them often by giving them a gift, bunch of flowers and a card.

I always think that home-made is much more special, here is a quick and easy idea for a bright and colourful card that you can make at home or at school with children of all ages.

Mothers Day Card 2016

What you will need

  • White or coloured card
  • Brown wrapping paper
  • Different coloured paints
  • Paper plates
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Felt Tip

What you need to do

  1. Place each colour of paint onto a separate paper plate.
  2. Fold your card in half.
  3. Dip your hand into the green paint so that your palm and fingers are evenly covered.
  4. Press your hand onto your folded card to leave a hand print this will be the stems of your flower, then wash your hands.
  5. Dip your thumb into your chosen colour of paint and make a round thumb print at the top of your green finger prints this is the centre of your flower.
  6. Dip the tips of your fingers in a different colour of paint and make finger prints around your thumb print to form petals then wash your hands and allow the paint to dry.
  7. Using coloured card or brown paper cut out a plant pot shape and fold over the top to form the rim of the pot, write on your message and stick your pot onto your card.
