You have to get hands-on with this card idea from Our Daily Obsessions. The butterfly wing card is made by drawing around their hands, cutting them out and shaping them like wings. It is so simple yet effective.

The card also includes a pretty patterned card with a beautiful butterfly poem:

This isn’t just a butterfly as you can plainly see.
I made it with my hand which is a part of me.
It comes with lots of love especially to say,
I hope you have a very Happy Mother’s Day!

#5. I Love You Because

Make this sweet flap book card using four strips of different coloured paper and a stapler. Your child can draw and write different things that they love about Mum. Find full instructions on the Wayward Girls’ Crafts website.

#6. You Are My Sunshine

Isn’t this card from Crafty Morning just darling? All you need to make this sweet sunshine card is some pasta, yellow paint, a piece of card and markers. Use a paper plate to hold the yellow paint and you can roll the pasta around in it with a paintbrush to coat the pasta thoroughly. Make your card with a bright yellow circle for the sun.

Then when the pasta is dry, stick it onto the card in a sun shape and write your message – don’t forget the smiley face!

#7. Picasso’s Hands

Drawing inspiration from the great Picasso, get your kids to these flower handprints, just as he did. This brilliant idea comes from the Splish Splash Splatter website.

To copy the card, follow two easy steps. First, draw and paint a lovely bunch of flowers. Then put your hand in paint and press it onto the bottom of the bunch on your card to make it look like the hand is holding the flowers.

#8. Mother’s Day Rosette

Isn’t this a nice idea? A special rosette for the best Grandma ever (or could be one for a Mum too!). You’ll find full instructions to make the best grandma ever rosette on the Chica Circle website.

A glue gun and the paper cutter will make the project go faster but you could improvise and do this by hand.
