Whilst spoilt for choice with cards in the shops, an original creation from your little one is always a precious keepsake. Using colourful card, why not help your child create a collage using a few of your spare photographs which can be cut out, glued and decorated with whatever takes their fancy, from glitter to pompoms!
For those who love to paint, pictures and cards can be easily made using hand or finger prints and then detail added with paint and pens turning prints into beautiful creations. Handprints make great flowers, butterflies and animals with cute insects like ladybirds or bees easy to create with fingerprints – the possibilities are endless. For more craft ideas that even feature little ones favourite characters take a look at the CBeebies craft section which is sure to provide more inspiration.
However you spend this Mothering Sunday we hope you enjoy your special day.
