Our Cat Mother’s Day Card is literally the “purr-fect” kid-made surprise for Mom!
“Purr-fect” Cat MOM Card
We love puns in our family, and this cat-shaped card for Mother’s Day is absolutely purr-fect for kids to make! (See what I did there? Pun intended!)
The entire card spells out the word “MOM” and it has the purr-fect Mother’s Day message inside! (Ok…no more puns I promise!)
You can customize with mom’s favorite colors and your own designs, using our free printable card template as the base.
While our example is geared towards Mother’s Day, you could easily tailor the greeting to make a super cute birthday card for mom too!

How to Make this “Purr-fect” Cat Shaped Card for Mom
First, watch our quick video tutorials to see how the finished card looks. Then keep reading for full step-by-step photo instructions.

Print both templates — click here for this and all of our free printable kids craft templates. We recommend using white card stock for the “MOM” template, but you can use regular white printer paper for the circle template.
Cut out both templates.
Glue the greeting your printed to pink paper and trim around the edge, leaving a bit of the pink showing. Fold it in half so it looks like a single circle.
To make a cat’s ears, cut two triangles from pink paper and glue on top two smaller triangles from white paper. Glue these to the back of the circle.
Use black and pink markers to add eyes, nose, mouth and whiskers to your cat’s face.
Now grab the MOM template and fold at the top. Trim around the edge, making sure not to cut through the folds at the top. These folds keep your card together.
Use markers or paint markers to color in the “MOM” template. You can use our example or get creative and make your own patterns.
Finally, glue the cat’s head on the MOM template in place of the O. Your cat Mother’s Day Card is complete!
