I’m about a month early, but I thought I would get a start on Mothers Day.
This craft is a cute mothers day flower basket that any mom would be happy to receive.
You can also use this as a cup holder by inserting a small Styrofoam cup into the flower basket.
- Print the template. (Template)
- Color the flower basket.
- Cut out the flower basket.
- Fold on the two solid lines, creating two separate creases.
- Add glue to the tab on the basket and attach the tab on the other side of the basket.
- To finish the basket, add glue to the tab on the flower portion an attach the tab on the other side of the flower portion.
Activity sheets are a great way to end a Sunday School lesson. They can serve as a great take home activity. Or sometimes you just need to fill in those last five minutes before the end of class.

We should be thanking our mothers every day for all the hard work they do. And this craft is just that, a little extra dose of thank you.
The name of this craft includes the name Hide Away because once the kiddos finish making them and writing a little note of appreciation on the back, they can hide them around their house.
They can put one in the medicine cabinet, pin it to the fridge, they can place it in their moms briefcase or even in the vanity mirror in the car. This way every time mom finds one she can read a sweet reminder of how much they love her or a fond memory of time spent together and she will realize how special she is to those around her on her special day.
- Print out the border template and the thank you rectangles template onto colored card stock. (Template)
- Cut them out.
- Print the three designs pages. Let your kids pick and choose which ones they want to use.
- Color the design rectangles and then cut them out.
- Glue the design rectangles to the back of the thank you rectangles.
- Then glue the borders 0nto the design rectangles.
Your kids can then take them home and hide their thank you cards around the house.
Mothers Day. The day we celebrate how special our mothers are and thank them for the blessing that they are in our lives.
As I was coming up with craft ideas for mothers day I resorted first to cards. I can think back to my elementary school years and remember making dozens and dozens of cards. I’m sure you can do the same. Nothing compared to the feeling of working hard (or what seemed like hard work as a child 🙂 ) to create something beautiful and then rushing home to proudly give it to mom.
A couple of days ago I was reading a blog post and came upon the line mommy has my heart. Putting two and two together I came up with this cute heart shaped mothers day card. The kiddos will enjoy making this for their moms, grandmas or for any other mom in their lives they would like to show their love towards.
- Print out the big heart onto a piece of cardstock. (Template)
- Cut strips of different widths (preferably red and pink, but you can mix things up) and glue them onto the heart at a slight angle.
- Cut around the heart cutting off any overhanging strips.
- Next print out the smaller heart.
- Color in the little hearts around the rim of the heart. You can color in the inner heart if you choose.
- Glue the smaller heart onto the large heart.
- With glitter glue fill in the white border around the heart.
