From cardboard or thick paper cut a rectangle 15 cm x 12 cm. Prepare: two white paper strips 1,5 cm broad and 30 cm long for two flowers: and two yellow strips 1 cm broad and 15 cm long — for the flower middles. Cut one red strip 1,5 cm broad and 15 cm long — it`s a bud. Glue yellow long strips with the red one so that their one long side can coincide. Make incisions across the strips not reaching the edges about 2 mm. For a kid it`s better to draw a line till which the incisions are made.

Using a toothpick or a skewer make rolls of all the strips. Gluing the strip ends, let them dry well. Straighten the flower petals, bending them down. The bud is left folded.

To make the stem take a green strip 3-4 mm. broad and 30 cm long, two strips 15 cm long. Twist them onto the toothpick like a spiral in turn. A stem and two twigs turn out.

For the leaves take 3 rectangles 2 x 5 cm. Fold them in half and cut the leaves. You may help your kid (if he can`t use a scissors well yet) make incisions on the edges of leaves at the intervals of 1,5-2 mm.

Now assemble the card. On a piece of cardboard place the stem, twigs, leaves and flowers and look what turns out. Then glue everything to the cardboard. The greeting card is made. You are to write down compliments and tell your mom how you love her.

HAPPY MOTHER`S DAY!

We made some interesting cards and will make this one too. It's simple for preschoolers, I think.
