Mommy’s Khimar by Jamilah Tompkins-Bigelow, illustrations by Ebony Glenn

and

Activity Ideas

A simple and colourful flower card

I love this Mother’s Day Card craft!  You just need lots of different coloured construction paper, glue, and some good kid scissors!  If you need help, get your Dad or an older sibling to help you if you need help so that Mom doesn’t find out!
