The third card reads "Mom, you are LEGEN-DAIRY.  Happy Mother's Day!"  There is a picture of a bottle of milk, a cheese wedge and hearts.

Cards are a sweet and easy way to show someone you care. Why not invite kids to create a fun Mother’s Day card for their moms? These cards are extra fun because they have funny and silly word puns. I must admit, I love a good pun! 😉

These cards are also great because kids can color them in and write a short note on the inside and include a picture of their own for mom.

Need some ideas for short phrases young kids can write on the inside of the cards? Since they are new to writing and spelling, keep it simple! Let them write it out by sound, or ask them to share a few words they like to write. You can write it for them on another sheet, and they can copy it out.

Here are some ideas for simple phrases young kids can include :

  • I love you!
  • Happy Mother’s Day!
  • You are the best!
  • Best mom ever!
  • Thank you!
  • Love you lots!
