"Super Mom" Pop Up Card

For this pop up card, you will need cardstock of any color, scissors, markers or crayons, tape or glue.

First, cut a 6 by 12 inch of cardstock and fold in half for the card.
Next, cut a "support" piece of cardstock that is 1 1/2 by 3 inches. Fold in half and then fold a small tab at the top and bottom.

Next, let them draw a picture of the person to whom they will give the card. Have them draw a cape extending from both sides of their figure. Draw a big medal on the front with an "S" on it for "Super Mom" (Grandma, or Godmother). Color it in with markers or crayons and cut it out. (I added wiggle eyes to mine since I had them on hand.)

Let the kids decorate the front with any picture that want to draw, or use punches if you have them. They can also write the person's name on the front.

From the side, the support will look like a little "chair" with the top and bottom tabs attached to the top and bottom of the card. Tape or glue the figure's feet(only) to the bottom part of the support. When the card is closed, the figure is lying flat inside the card. When the card is opened, the tab with have the figure pop up and stand upright.

Finish by writing "Super Mom" on the top portion of the card and a sentiment at the bottom. Let your child give this to Grandma, Godmother, or any other special lady in their lives for Mother's Day.
