It’s Not All Mary Poppins

Every good gift needs a card

We did two Mother’s Day cards today. One, using construction paper, pipe cleaners and pastel-coloured muffin papers, for the older children.

Here, four-year-old Emily carefully traces over my lightly-pencilled “Happy Mother’s Day”.

Tyler’s finished product. Tyler, being two, doesn’t have the fine-motor control to trace letters. But he can glue! And tape! And splash stickers about!!

And for the babies, who can do none of the above? Baby hand-prints are always a favourite amongst mothers of babies, so why not turn a few into flowers?

Happy Mother’s Day!

  1. You’re so GOOD at that! I love these.

    Thank you. It comes from years of practice, and from a mother who viewed art as something you learned by doing, and that, in arts and crafts, there’s no such thing as a mistake, just a change of direction! It gave me a tonne of confidence to just start mucking about with things and seeing what happens. After a while, you find out more good things happen than not.
