Hey there, Pizzazzerie readers! It’s Cara from One Swell Studio here! Growing up, I remember making cards for anybody & everybody who would take them. I loved plopping down on our living room floor, dumping out all of my crayons, and going to town scribbling to my heart’s content.
I was so incredibly excited when my boys got to the age when they enjoyed coloring (instead of eating the crayons!). I think I’ve probably saved entirely too many of their little scrawled “masterpieces,” but when they present me with a picture that they created with their chubby little hands, my heart melts a little bit. I’m eagerly awaiting the day when they enter the card-making phase. Then I’ll really be running out of room for saving their papers. I think every mom loves to receive a handmade gift from her kiddo–no matter how old they get!
Mother’s Day is coming up on May 10th this year– just a few short weeks away! Somehow, this day always seems to sneak up on me. May is a busy, busy month around here with the end of school, summer planning & finally getting to spend some (much-needed!) time outside. But we can’t forget about those mommas!
I created a sweet, simple little printable that’s perfect for little hands to color in. The card features the cutest little teapot, cup, & spoon with the phrase “You are beau-TEA-ful!” Eeeep! You can’t get much sweeter than that–and what momma *doesn’t* need some caffeine in her life?! The back of the card has an illustration of a cute little mama– and a heart & spot for the little artist to sign his or her name. The inside is blank to allow for creative minds to draw their very own picture for a special Mother’s Day surprise.
All you’ll need to do to get started is download the file, print it out (white cardstock or plain paper both work fine) and let your little one make it beautiful with crayons or markers. My little guy had a blast coloring this card– and you better believe it’s already hanging on our fridge for all to see!
This little card would be adorable all on it’s own or presented along with a yummy breakfast in bed– and maybe some flowers. Hint, hint to all the daddies out there who are hoping to impress this year! ;)
Here’s wishing you a Mother’s Day filled with love, sweetness and some very keep-able crayon artwork. Enjoy!
