There’s no better gift to give our moms than a hug and kiss, so why not make this moment last a little longer with a HUG card? Of course, this hug may not give the warmth that a real hug could give, still, it’s a great gift to give!

What you will need

  • Cardboard paper
  • Bond paper
  • Paint
  • Yarn
  • Tape
  • Print out of child’s picture
  • Crayons or other coloring materials

Step 1: Decorate the card by pasting or drawing. We decided to make the kids draw to make it more personal

Step 2: Paint the child’s hand and let him/her make hand prints on a separate piece of paper

Step 3: Cut out the hand prints

Step 4: Paste the child’s picture on the card

Step 5: Tape the hand prints to a piece of yarn and tape the middle part of the yarn to the card. Remember to close the card properly with the hand prints tucked inside before giving it to mommy so that when she opens it, the two hands will fly out as if giving her a big big hug!

Happy Mothers’ Day!
