Easy Mother's Day Card

Here's a quick and easy card you can make for Mother's Day. All you need to do is roll out a circle of paper clay ( sold at Michaels and Daiso). Push the child's hand in the clay. Let the hand print dry for a day. When dry, glue it to your choice of card stock. This would also look cute framed in a shadow box.

*Paper clay is very light so it won't way down the card at all. You can also paint paper clay.

Thank you for sharing-- we'll be making one for each Grandma and one for us... hope it actually goes well with the little toddler who loves to squish things!

A Report on the "Easy" Card Making with the Toddler

She squisheeeeeeeed the clay. A lot. It wasn't as much fun as I had hoped. I mean that it wasn't as much fun for me. She was having fun until I became over frustrated and pried the clay out of her clenched fists.

Not my greatest moment... lots of tears from her and lasting guilt from me.

Thanks for the great idea; maybe next year it'll be different.

Hi Pamela,

Sorry it didn't work out and you had such a lousy experience making this.

Here's what worked for me. I guided my two year old's hand when I did this. I told her she could not move her hand at all. I didn't let her make the hand print on her own. I also told her she could play with the clay after we were finished so she would be motivated to cooperate.

This is a good idea for a 3-year-old, but what about something a 10 year-old could make, because this idea is a little childish.
