Mother’s Day Card

MOM-1024x536
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.

MATERIALS
• White construction paper, 12″ x 18″ size
• Black Sharpie marker’
• Oil pastels

DIRECTIONS
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.

    I have used my texture sheets with this project also. 🙂

    I did this with my Grade 2 class. It went well. I also made “I love you” in gothic lettering for them to glue on the back of the card.

    I also used student grade watercolour paper which made for sturdier card and a nice effect.

    Thanks for the idea.

    This sample was done with oil pastels, which are a little messy but oh, so colorful. Crayons are fine too though if that is what you have.

    This is a really colorful card and a great idea for a quick project for my 3rd grade cub scouts. Thanks!
