Mother’s Day is this weekend! As it draws closer, I got to thinking about how people often refer to moms as superheroes. Though as I searched the web, I found only a few examples of Mother’s Day projects for kids to make that honor “superhero moms”. Finding a project with flowers and hearts is simple. Though superhero themed projects for moms are not so easy to find. Found many superhero dad projects; just not much for moms. So why is this the case when moms are called superheroes so often? Us geek moms like superhero stuff too!
Well, I searched and found a few options that are sure to make a superhero momma smile.
Create a Your Own Superhero Card
Found these card inspiration ideas on the Teachers Pay Teachers website. One card folds like a typical card and the other is a flat-front style. With some construction paper, scissors, google eyes, glue, and markers, kids can craft a heroic card for mom.
Superhero Chocolate Treat
My daughter made a teacher version of this craft for her teachers last year, and it was a huge hit. I Heart Crafty Things has created a sweet treat worthy of a superhero mom.
Superhero Shadow Box Messages
Saw these adorable Superhero Shadow boxes on Amazon.uk and fell in love with them. Unfortunately these handmade boxes are not currently being shipped stateside. Though a run to the craft store for a shadow box, letter tiles, and a few other supplies, a hero-themed box could be created in an afternoon. The superhero included doesn’t have to be a LEGO figure. Any small action figure will work. Once arranged and things glued into place, kids will have a heartfelt gift that may bring a tear to even the toughest superhero mom’s eye.
No time to make something?
Then check out these superhero Mother’s Day cards I found at Target.
