We spent 2 continous evenings on cards

My girls' school have handmade card competition in conjunction of Mother's Day, Teacher's Day and Father's Day every year. We always make use of this first semester school break to create those cards. This started since my elder was in Primary 1.

We need to do 6 cards, 2 cards for each day, as May is in Primary 1 this year. We spent some time browsing at the website to collect some craft ideas before we started to work on the card. We usually looked up for quick and easy handmade cards idea online. I didn't help them in the card creation, but I helped in giving lots of brilliant ideas. lol!

These are the Mother's Day cards, pink card is created by May and the yellow card is created by April.

Teacher's Day card by May. It is a document bag card.
Teacher's Day card by April. She was using finger prints on those flowers.
 
Father's Day card by April. "A bear hug to Dad" and DAD was written in dollar sign $. It means her dad worth every penny.

Father's Day card by May. This card is cute, and it can put a smile on every person who looks at it.
Things that we used are card stocks, scissors, double sided tape, glue, colourful and pattern tapes, water colour, ribbons, buttons and magic pens.

That's the only activity I did with them in this school break.

  7. oh great that you work on the card together with the two princesses.. this is a good thing to do to bond the relationships don't you think?? i guess many parents will just leave the kids doing all those on their own.. and they would just smile off when the kids show them the card..

  9. great ideas from those websites.. hmmm, i used to handmade a lot of birthday cards for my classmates and friends too when i was in high school.. i would say i was quite talented and skillful in doing that back then.. everyone loved those card i gave them, and some friends even still keep the cards till now!! of course now i don't do that anymore, instead do those electronically and sent over by FB or Whatsapp, hehe~~ :p

  10. So interesting to make cards! During my time, we didn't have such ideas. Either my teachers were lame or not creative or they needed to go for more trainings! But then we had no mothers or Father's Day when I was at your children's age la.

  11. I like all the cards and drawings, they are nice in their own ways with so much effort put in. I told you once that I drew birthday cards for my relatives before I went to school. One Aunty still kept the cards until now and she is almost 90 years old now!!!! She treasures them!

  12. Your kids are so blessed to have a creative mummy like you! You really take great interests in their well being and educational grooming. I wished my parents had done more but I am not complaining anyway as my childhood life was better than my friends.

  13. I must say this honestly that I envy that your kids are given the opportunity to attend the Buddhism classes at such tender age. When I seeked refuge in Buddhism in my 30s, I regretted that it was not when I was a kid. Anyway better later than never.

  14. You are such a patient mum! I don't think I have the patience to spend 2 consecutive evenings doing cards with my girls!

  15. Hi Sheoh Yan, wow! The cards are beautiful! And well made too. Somehow girls will always have these special touches doing something for their mom and dad.
    And your 2 dolls are not only creative, but artistic too.
    Love that beautiful flowers and her play on colours....Outstanding! And that 'hug to dad'...a work of art.
    Someday when they are grown up with kids, they will look into this blog of yours, and their children will say, "WOW"!

    Its really good you giving them all the help you can....and they in turn doing things not only for themselves but for you too, and with that special ingredient called 'love'.
    Have a fun weekend.
    I'm expecting my young, Penang lady visitor arriving this evening, our local time 7.15pm. We now Saturday 30th morning.
    It'll be your Sunday evening 7.15Am.
    You keep a song in your heart.
    Lee.
