Mother’s Day card – for your child to make

Step-by-step instructions to create a lovely card for Sunday 14 March


What you’ll need

  • Glue
  • Pencil
  • Scissors*
  • Coloured paper
  • White paper or card

*Adult supervision required


Step 1

Draw a flower with three petals on a piece of thick coloured paper, and then carefully cut out the shape you have drawn.


Step 2

Fold down the middle of each petal neatly along the dotted lines, as shown here.


Step 3

Then, make another fold between each petal to make a flower shape, like this.


Step 4

Fold a long piece of green paper in half and cut a thin leaf shape against the fold. Remeber to keep the paper folded as you cut.


Step 5

Cut a stem from green paper. Then, from the orange paper, cut three small strips with points at one end to make the flower’s stamens.


Step 6

Fold a sheet of white A4 paper or card in half. Glue on your stem, leaf, and stamens, then stick the flower on top.

And there you are – all done!
