Mother’s Day Cards – Kindergarten Style


….there were plenty of gifts made for moms in the kindergarten classes last week

I wanted to come up with a nice piece of art to put on a card that the children would be excited to give to their moms. I decided to to teach the children how to draw simple hearts and flower line drawings using paint. When the paint dried they could add more interesting detail using black (or coloured) markers.

When the children were happy with their creation they could use the entire piece and glue it down onto a sheet of card stock or they could have their favourite section trimmed to fit onto a card. Some of them took it a step further and actually cut up their shapes and then glued them down individually.

We wrote a message on the board for the children to copy in their own hand to add to their cards to create their original Mother’s Day Card. What do you think? Of course I’m biased but I think they’re fabulous.

  1. You are right that they are fabulous. The paint with the added black marker, a super idea, really pops off the page. These make me smile and are definitely donning a few fridges of proud mamas! The children must just love you! ❤
