Hi Friends! Today I have a super easy way for little ones to make a Mother’s Day card or gift. Moms love getting art from their kiddos and especially love the toddler and preschool Mother’s Day cards they receive! If you are teaching a bunch of littles at daycare, preschool, or church, this would be a fun little project for them to do and only requires a few supplies.
Materials for Preschool Mother’s Day Cards:

- cardstock – any color. I used 8×11
- stamps and stamp pads
- temporary glue dots
- paint and paint blotters (optional)
- dot markers (optional)
- MOM file – Download FREE PNG here or PDF here
First thing you’ll need to do is cut the word MOM out of cardstock. I used my Cricut Explore to cut out 65! If you’d love to know more about a Cricut and all that it can do click here! If you have a cutting machine, download the PNG file listed above and upload it to CDS. I cut mine about 3″x7″. If you don’t have an electronic cutting machine, no problem! Download the PDF file above and cut it out by hand.
I love these glue dots! They are easy to apply and came up super easy off the cardstock. Win Win when working with littles! Put a couple of dots on the back side of the MOM cut out and put it on the paper wherever you want the word to go.
There are a variety of ways you can have the kiddos decorate the card. We used stamps and markers. We made some easy stamps out of foam and corks for Valentine’s Day and used those. This is another fun activity for kiddos! Click here to read full tutorial on how to make your own stamps!
Just have them stamp on the edges of the MOM cut out. You’ll want the full outline filled in with something. They can use markers or dot stamp markers would work great too. Paint brushes probably wouldn’t work great with littles because they’d probably brush up the edges pretty easily. If you want to use paint, I’d suggest using daubers where they can just dab it. When using markers, have them start from on top of the MOM and brush outwards so they don’t lift up the cut-out.
They can stamp or paint the rest of the page as they like. Once they are done, simply remove the MOM and peel off the glue dots.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a creative day!
