In case you don't realise it yet, it is Mother's Day this coming Sunday!
I don't usually give fanciful gifts to my mum but it has somehow become a tradition to give an ang pow together with something handmade. Last year, we made DIY felt tulips and the year before, we made paper carnations. Yeah yeah, guess it's hard to run away from flowers when it comes to this special occasion.
This year, I wanted to keep it simple yet and let the girls be able to join in the creation process. So, we decided to do something easy and fun - handmade cards with fingerprint flowers!
1) Finger paint
8) Thick white paper (A4 size)
10) Printed messages
Ta-dah! We were all done within a couple of hours! Our message was kept simple "全世界的康乃馨不如一颗感恩的心. 祝您2015年母亲节快乐." Yes, I came up with it myself and the rough translation would be "All the carnations in the world can't be compared to a grateful heart. Wishing you a Happy Mother's Day 2015."
Yes, I really wanted to make use of this chance to teach my girls that we should feel thankful in our hearts towards our parents who brought us into the world and raised us. That gratitude is best shown through respect and appreciation, and is something that money and presents can never buy.
How are you planning to celebrate this Mother's Day?
