***If you’re not up to making your own envelopes (I promise, it’s easy!), you can also buy size A2 Envelopes that will fit all of my printable cards perfectly. Order once and keep a stash on hand for when you print a card. . Amazon sells them, as do other office supply stores. Amazon sells cute brown Kraft paper envelopes or white ones.

To get the kids involved, print one of these questionnaires out for each child, and have them (or you) fill them out for mom. Many times their answers are quite entertaining. 🙂

A little extra gift to match are these bookmarks. Print them out on cardstock instead of regular printer paper so they’ll be nice and thick. I like #65 cardstock as it works well in my printer. Then cut them out around the dotted lines. If you want to take them up a notch, you can purchase DIY laminating sheets to cover them with.

If your children would like to color something for mom, I’ve included a fun printable coloring page.

With all these choices you’re sure to please on Mother’s Day!
