Mother’s Day is just around the corner! Kids can make mom, grandma, or their motherly role-model feel special with a simple hand-made card. This easy mother’s day card idea uses basic craft supplies and recycled materials. Perfect for caring, eco-savvy kids!
Easy Mother’s Day Card Idea
Every week, my family tosses vitamin bottles, medicine bottles, and milk and juice jugs into the recycling bin. The colorful caps from those bottles are often perfect for children’s crafts.
For our card, we decided to transform our collection of bottle caps into sweet flowers for Mom!
These handmade cards are so easy peasy to make and a better way to reuse items we typically throw away. This fun idea will make mom’s special day even better! Older kids and younger kids can make this with very little help! What a great idea for a homemade mothers day card.

Supplies Needed To Make An Easy Happy Mother’s Day Card:
How To Make A Wonderful and Easy Happy Mother’s Day Card:
First, instruct your child to fold the card stock in half.
Next, glue a bottle cap to the card stock. If your child wishes to create a bouquet of flowers, glue many bottle caps to the card stock. It’s fun to use a variety!
NOTE: Some bottle caps can be small. Please supervise small children around bottle caps.
Draw the shape of flower petals around the bottle cap. Kids love getting creative with this part!
Color in the flower petals. Make sure to add stems and leaves to the flowers.
Invite your child to add more detail to their picture. My child chose to add a sun and grass! Then of course, he wrote “Happy Mother’s Day” at the top of his card.
Simple, sweet, and made with love!
Other Happy Mother’s Day Card Ideas
If you have an older kid, they can write a heartfelt message inside or a poem. If they aren’t confident in their own message, write another sweet message like your favorite memory of mom!
Young children can do this too, but their little hands will probably need a little help. This DIY card is yours to design. Write your own special message, or just add more pictures! I bet some paper tulips would look great with your bottle cap flower. Maybe put the flower in a flower pot. There should be enough room on this gorgeous card to add whatever you want.
Or you can follow the step by step tutorials we have. Either way, I’m sure this happy mother’s day card will make mom smile.
