“Funstuff: Celebrating Mothers,” Friend, May 2014, 12
Make this fun card for your mother or another important person for Mother’s Day. Be sure to get an adult’s help.
You will need:
2 pieces of thick colored paper
crayons or markers
Trace both of your hands on a piece of colored paper and cut them out.
Cut a 1-inch (2.5-cm) strip from the long side of a piece of paper and fold the strip accordion style.
Line up the paper hands and glue each end of the folded strip to the palm of each hand.
Write I love you … on the outside of one hand and this much! on the folded strip between the hands.
Write a nice note on the back of the other hand and give it to someone you love!
