The Vedas says “Matru Devo Bhava” which means Respect/Worship your Mother just like we worship God. In our Mother Tongue i.e. Marathi, “AAI” is the word for MOM. To me AAI means – Aa-Aatma, I-Ishwar (God) or Aa-Aarambh (beginning) and Ishwar. She nurtures her child putting her heart and soul into it and always keeping her child’s needs first before her. Just one more day to go for Mother’s Day so why not to make something special for your MOM. Summer break is almost going to begin and if you are lucky enough to have your Grand Parents visiting you then make this craft for your Grand Ma too.
It’s a very easy craft with cupcake liners. Yes, those printed cupcake liners that we all use for baking cupcakes or muffins. My Hindi Class students made this craft for their moms and along with it they wrote their Mother’s Day message in Hindi. I thought it would be a good idea to change a regular Hindi class into a Mother’s Day Hindi class keeping the Hindi learning concept intact. When I discussed about
this project with them, they were pretty excited. They decorated the cards as per their wish, imagination & creativity.
You will need:
- Card stock - of your choice
- Few cupcake liners
- pipe cleaners
- First fold the card stock into half & give it a greeting card look.
- Then arrange the cupcake liners according to your wish. Don’t over-fill the card. You can cut the edges of the liners using scissors or make small slits at equal distance. For that lightly fold the liner in half, and then open it.
- Once you are satisfied with your design then glue them on the greeting card. Add few leaves to the flowers. You can use pipe cleaner for making leaves or cut out leaves from green card stock.
