As our preschool school year drew to a close, lessons for the letters Y and Z were left to complete. Z is for Zoo was the theme of choice for the last day of school but I was still struggling with what to do for Y… then I came up with a plan!
Mother’s Day was right around the corner. Y week? Z week? I elected to combine Mother’s Day and Y and do the Letter Y is for Yellow. We studied the primary colors and learned what secondary colors were formed when we combined them. There was time in the lesson to fit in a nice craft so we also made this adorable cupcake liner card for the moms.

I love how the paper cupcake liner stands out a little bit for a 3-D effect.
DIY Cupcake Liner Mother’s Day Card
- Print the words “Happy Mother’s Day” and an outline of stem & leaves on cardstock on the right side of the paper.
- Fold the paper in half so that the words and image are on the front of the card.
- Color the stem and foliage.
- Turn two cupcake liners inside out.
- Clip the acordion outsides of the liners so that they separate a bit to form petals.
- Gluestick the centers of the liners.
- One goes on top of the stem on the front.
- The second one goes inside the card on the right.
- On the front, gluestick the yellow circle into the center of the cupcake liner.
- Squeeze some dots of Elmer’s glue on the circle and attach a few “seeds” (blackbeans)
- Allow the seeds to dry for a few minutes.
- Inside the card, glue the child’s picture in the center of the other cupcakeliner.
- Have the child to use crayons to write a message to mom and sign it.
There you have it … a work of art!
