Parent’s Day Glitter Cards

Parent's Day

You celebrated Mother’s Day. Then, you celebrated Father’s Day. Now it’s time for Parent’s Day! Held on the fourth Sunday of July, this day recognizes all parental figures in children’s lives. Mark Parent’s Day with a few fun (and crafty) cards. Kids can make one for mom and another for dad – both sparkling with a similar design, in glitter.

Materials:

  • Glitter
  • Card stock paper (8×10-inch, or letter, size)
  • Clear-drying school glue
  • A pencil
  • Scissors

Instructions:

  1. Position the paper vertically.
  2. Fold the paper from top to bottom, tent style.
  3. Repeat to make a second card.
  4. Optional: Use the scissors to cut the card, making it smaller or creating a different shape. If your child wants to cut a heart, circle or any other shape, make sure that she keeps at least a few inches of the top (the folded part) together. If not, the entire card will fall apart.
  5. Write “Mom” on one card and “Dad” on the other, using the pencil.
  6. Draw over the pencil lines with the glue. If your child is struggling with this, pour a small pool of glue onto a piece of wax paper. Dip a toothpick or paintbrush into the glue and ‘paint’ the letters.
  7. Sprinkle the glitter over top of the glue.
  8. Shake off the excess to reveal the letters.

After the glue dries, your child can write a special Parent’s Day message inside!
