"Mom, Thanks for Sticking by Me" Folding Craft Stick Mother's Day Card

Craft Stick Folding Mother's Day Card Craft www.daniellesplace.com

The craft sticks are taped together so that when the craft sticks are pushed together from the top and bottom of the stack they fan fold up into a compact stack of sticks.

What you will need:

Woodsies Mini Jumbo Craft Sticks - Use good quality craft sticks that lay flat. The 5/8" work perfect with the one-inch tape. *You can use the Woodsies Jumbo Craft Sticks with the 1.5 Inch - 3M Scotch Masking Tape for a bigger Canvas.

3M Scotch Masking Tape, 1-Inch- Other brands will work, but this tape works great! It is the exact color of the craft sticks. (Staple's Tape works better with the washable markers, but it is lighter than the stick and more transparent and doesn't cover the stick as well.)

Acrylic Paint

Permanent Markers

Crayons or Colored Pencils - (The washable markers don't work well because they smear.)

Ribbon

How to Make the Folding Craft Stick Canvas:

1. If you are using the mini-jumbo craft sticks, cut the one-inch masking into 4-inch pieces.

2. Place two sticks together, side by side, and tape them together covering both the sticks with the tape.

3. Turn the two sticks over so that they are diagonal to you.

Folding Craft Stick Diagram

4. Place another craft stick next to and below the two sticks that you taped together. Use another piece of tape to tape the bottom two sticks together.

5. Turn all three sticks over diagonally and place another stick at the bottom of the row and tape the last two sticks together. Keep going until you have a whole row of sticks.

6. You can also cover the first and last stick in the row by placing tape over the stick and then folding it back over the stick. It is easier to write on the tape than the craft stick. The ink soaks into the sticks and blurs.

Mother's Day Craft for Kids from www.daniellesplace.com

7. Draw out your design on the craft stick canvas with a pencil. If you make a mistake, you can erase it. When you are happy with your design paint it with the acrylic paint. When the acrylic paint is dry use a black marker to outline your shapes and write the words. You can use: "Mom, thanks for sticking up for me!" or "Mom, thanks for sticking by me!", or anything else you want.

You can make this craft even easier for younger children. Just have them place six or more crafts stick one on top of the other in a row and then glue two other craft stick perpendicular to the row of craft sticks. To keep the craft sticks together while they are gluing them you can place a piece of tape across the row of sticks. Attach a piece of yarn to to top so it can be hung up. You can also use the Colored Jumbo Craft Sticks or the regular-sized Colored Craft Sticks so they don't have to paint them.

Watch a video on how to make the folding craft stick canvas.

6. Fill in the image using the transparent paint. Don't make it too thick and make sure you don't leave any spaces.

7. You can add designs to the images by dropping different colors of paint onto the surface paint.

The "Mom" window cling on the right was made using this technique.

8. Let the image dry over night and then carefully peel it off the vinyl.

Comments from Subscribers:

I have just done the "Thank you Mother's Day Card" with our 7 year olds. It is a brilliant activity, though I did make one change. Instead of the coin for the "spending time with me", I drew a Mummy-sized arm that the children cut out and then glued on to show the child and Mum holding hands. It worked well. Thanks, Jackie Wheeler

Just wanted to say thank you for this craft. It went so well in Sunday School today. The 2-3 yrs olds loved it. (The kids are now 3-4 yrs but will be with me till Sept.). I printed out the card, had made a photo of them a few weeks ago, made slits inside the card so that their photo would stay in it. They colored the outside picture of the boy-girl & we wrote Happy Mother's Day on the front. Fixed their photo in side the card.
