Mother's Day Cards

I saw these on Let's Explore and decided we should whip up a batch to give to Grandma for Mother's Day. To make these, I first taped down a piece of wax paper with masking tape, and then taped a square in the center of our wax paper. I had the kids paint a smooth layer of paint inside the square, and then use a Q-tip to make a drawing in the paint. I used a wet wipe to clean the edges of the square, so that the paint was only left in the inside of the square. The final step was to take a blank card (folded cardstock) and press it over the painted square. Once they dried, the kids used stamps to put sweet sayings inside the card, like joy, love and family.
