I Love You Maaaa!


Mother’s Day Card

After working as a nanny for over 25-years it’s hard trying to find new ideas for Mother’s Days cards and gifts to make with my nanny kids for their mothers. But I found this adorable lamb idea at the craftymorning blog. It would be perfect to make with white paint on dark paper like the project on the blog. But we used white paper with my nanny kid’s mother’s and grandparents’ favorite color paint instead.

You Will Need:

Card Stock or Heavyweight Paper
Paint or Stamp Pad
Black Construction Paper
Goggle Eyes
Paper Plate for Paint (optional)
Paper Towels

What to Do:

1. Cover workspace. Fold cardstock paper in half to make a card.
2. Pour a little paint on a paper plate or use stamp pad. Put the child’s pointer finger in paint or ink and press it firmly on the center of card. Repeat putting fingerprints on card to make a circle.
3. Cut out the sheeps head and legs from the black felt or construction paper as the paint dries on the card.
4. Glue face and legs to the card. Add google eyes to the head.
5. Make a bow out of ribbon and glue under the face of the sheep.
6. Write “I Love You Maaa..” or “I Love You GrandMaaa..” on the card.
