Looking to give your Mothers Day card a pop?  Try this easy popup card that your kids will have a blast making and mom will be sure to keep.  By making a popup card, you turn a regular homemade card into something special.

Every mom loves a picture frame right?  This is the perfect frame to attach a magnet to and put on the refrigerator,  You can get puzzle pieces at any of the different dollar stores or use can use some of your old puzzle that are missing a few pieces.

Make a backdrop a few weeks before mothers day and you are ready to go.  You can either have them take a picture with a chalkboard saying why they love their mom, or use can record it and upload it to a private you tube page.   I suggest doing both!

2.  Fingerprint Flowers

Kids love any time you let them dip their fingers in paint and this project turns their fingerprints into beautiful flowers.   For a final touch, have the kids frame the picture with different designed card stock…..mom will love it for sure!

1.  Cupcake Coupon Book

This is my favorite idea for the year.   We will be doing this at our church this year.  The kids decorate a cupcake card that has little work coupons attached to it.  We will be giving this to each mom along with an actual cupcake.
