I’ve used this Mother’s Day Card idea for kinders for years and I’m still surprised at how nice they turn out, especially when colored with bright patterns.
• White construction paper, 12″ x 18″ size
• Black Sharpie marker’
• Oil pastels
PREP: Cut large white construction paper (12″ x 18″) in half to make panels of 6″ x 18″. Fold the panels into thirds to make a card that measures 6″ x 6″. Arrange folds so that the card makes a “Z”. Cut lots of poster board “M” and “O” block letters for the students to trace. To save time, I left the “O” without the center cut out so students could just draw their own.
1. The students are to center the letters in each panel, trace with a pencil, and then with a black marker.
2. The students colored in a different pattern inside each letter, and then different colors for the background.
