Mother's Day Coupons

5.0 based on 1 rating

What You Need:

  • Two pieces of card stock, either plain or colored
  • Mom Coupon template (download ours here!)
  • Markers
  • Hole punch
  • ¼” wide ribbon

What You Do:

  1. Start with two pieces of card stock, either plain or colored, and use two of them to print out your coupon templates.  Cut each sheet into four cards.
  2. Now use your imagination: what can your kids do for mom that would really make her day—not just on the holiday but some other time, perhaps, too?  Classic favorites include vacuuming, doing dishes, and so on…but don’t forget that hugs can go on a coupon, too; or if you’re in on it, Dad, a family date to the movies or some other treat like that. 
  3. On each card, give your child some writing practice: write the coupon, decorate it…and on the back, write at least one sentence about why your child really wants to do this for Mom!  Let’s say, for example, that there’s a coupon for doing dishes.  Why?  This is a perfect time to thank mom, in vivid detail, for doing such excellent cooking.
  4. When your child has finished all eight cards with writing and decoration,  cut the remaining sheet of card stock into four sections.  Place one on the bottom of the stack of coupons, and place the other on top to make a cover.  Decorate the cover, and then put two holes along the side of the cards.  Tie pieces of ribbon through each set of holes, to make two bows. 
  5. Presto!  There’s nothing like a homemade gift of love to make Mom’s day—and to nurture your child’s learning while you’re at it!
