String Heart Yarn Cards
For a creative and different way of showing your love, these String Heart Yarn Cards are perfect to surprise and amaze on Mother’s Day.

Thank her for teaching you how to sew with this special way of showing it! Fill it with inside jokes or memorable moments and it will truly melt her heart. If the kids want to try it, make sure to supervise them and only allow them to use a needle if you’re comfortable with it.
Washi Tape Card
Thank your mom for getting you into the craft world and letting her know how much you love her by making this beautiful Washi Tape card. Add strips of colorful washi tape on the front of a basic card or cardstock paper and then add a paper heart to it. This lovely patterned card is the perfect idea for those who love to craft and it’s also a kid-friendly option that the little ones can have a fun time making.
Giant Mother’s Day Card
Go big or go home! If you want to truly surprise your mom this Mother’s Day, this option is perfect. It’s a lot of fun for the little ones because they’ll struggle a little to hold it! You can include a big print of a family picture inside which she can later hang on a wall and it also provides lots of room for a long and detailed message or a short and sweet one. You can also add trinkets, photos, and objects into the big envelope to remind her of some amazing moments you’ve had together!
