STEP 2: Prepare your Mother's Day card craft


To get started, print out the template with the MOM lettering on heavy cardstock and set to the side. 

Then, print the template with the circular messages on standard printer paper. Have your child choose which message they'd like to use and cut it out, making sure to leave the circles connected.

Alternatively, if making this craft with several children, each one can use a different message. This would be great for siblings each wanting to give a card to mom! (check out our unicorn card design too!)

Next, glue the circle template to orange construction paper and trim the edges while leaving a little room to give it a nice look. Fold it in half.

STEP 3: Make the cat ears and face


Now it's time to start making the cat! Cut two small triangles out of orange construction paper for the ears. Cut and glue two smaller white triangles for the inside of your cat's ears.

For the mouth, cut a small oval from white paper. Use some markers to draw a heart nose and smile.

STEP 4: Assemble the cat face


Start assembling the face of your cat Mother's Day card craft by gluing the ears to the back of the orange circle from earlier. Glue the white mouth oval in the centre and add some eyes and whiskers to finish off the face.

STEP 5: Finalize Mother's Day card craft


To finish up this printable Mother's Day card, grab the template with the MOM lettering and fold it to make a crease at the top of the letters. 

Trim around the word MOM, leaving the fold intact. This will allow the card to stand up.  Help younger toddlers or preschoolers to write a special message for mom inside!
