It’s Not All Mary Poppins

Mother’s Day Card-Hug

When you’re working with toddlers, this will probably take two adults. Toddlers are wriggly, and they keep trying to sit up so as to see what you’re doing over there!! But with a bit of restraint cooperation and another set of hands, you can whip up a card that will bring a warm rush to whichever much-loved person receives it. Mothers, today, but the dads will be getting one next month for Father’s Day. We’ll probably make some for grandparents somewhere along the line…

A hand-crafted tin of home-made cookies, wrapped in a hug. Does it get any better?

I think not!

Happy early Mother’s Day!

  1. wow such a brilliant hug idea….i am totally going to do this with the kiddo today…one for myself and one for daddy! What kind of paper did you use for this?
    I happen to have a large roll of flimsy — tracing paper — given me by a friend who owns a design firm. I used it because it’s what I have, and I can cut it to any length I want. Any paper at all would do, even if it meant taping together enough pages of regular paper to get the length you needed.
