Simple Mother's Day Card

Here's a simple Mother's Day card that requires only a few supplies and can be graded to meet the needs of children of all skill levels!


  • construction paper
  • pencil
  • scissors
  • glue


1. Depending on your child's skill level, grade the first step appropriately:
  • Child draws and then cuts out shapes
  • Child traces and then cuts out shapes
  • Child cuts out shapes already drawn on paper
2. Your child can assemble and glue the shapes using a model as an example. This is great for working on executive function skills, like planning, organizing, and sequencing!

3. Add a message to the inside. This is a great way to sneak in some handwriting practice!
  • Child can write a message independently
  • Child can copy a message from another paper or from farther away
  • If you want to work on typing, type a message, print it and glue it to the inside

Skills addressed:

  • bilateral coordination
  • fine motor dexterity
  • eye hand coordination
  • scissor skills
  • handwriting
  • planning
  • organizing
  • sequencing

 Happy Mother's Day!
