To begin, place the children in several small groups at a table supplied with a folded piece of white poster board for each child. Crayons, precut hearts and glue will also be needed for each group.
To simplify this craft, you may wish to add prewritten messages. On the front (top portion) of the card, write “Happy Mother's Day." On the precut hearts, you may write a variety of messages, such as “I Love You," “You Are Special, Mom," “Thanks for Everything," “#1 Mom" or “Hugs & Kisses For You Mom."
Read the messages to the children. Allow the children to choose their own messages. Each child should select a heart with a pre-written message. Next, have the children color the heart. The children should fold the heart in half with the message on the outside. The inside and outside of this Mother's Day card may be colored or decorated as each child desires.
Next, fold the outside edges of the heart forward. The folded edges of the heart need to be glued to the inside of the card. Center the fold on the heart with the fold on the card. The heart will “pop out" when opened.
