Mother's Day Pieces Card

Mothers Day Card Front

DSC_8170

You will need:
White Card Stock
Colored Construction Paper
Black Marker
Glue
Scissors
Yarn

You [and your preschooler] will do:
Cut a piece of card stock down to 5 x 11 inches then fold it into a Zig Zag.
Have your preschooler cut a rectangle out of construction paper and rip a bunch of construction paper into pieces. Using your black marker write on the card as is shown in the picture, with a heart on the last square of the card. Write "I love you" onto the rectangle and have your preschooler glue it on. Your preschooler will then glue the pieces of construction paper on to the front of the card, and in the center of the heart. Fold up and tie yarn around it to keep it closed. Then... give to MOM!
*If your preschooler can write on their own, have them do all the writing:)

My daughter just had a great time making these cards for her grandpas and her dad for Father's Day. We just cut a piece of card stock in half so we could get two cards out of one paper. The measurements were then 4.25x11 and they looked great! Thank you for sharing this super cute idea!
