Looking for a really sweet way to say Happy Mother’s Day? Our Mother’s Day Sloth Card with Free Printable Template is the perfect way to say hey Mom, we love you! Take it slow and enjoy your day!
I have to say, I quite adore sloths. They are just so cute, with their easygoing nature. If ever there’s a day where mom should be able to take it slow and just hang around with her kids, it’s Mother’s Day. Whether that actually happens or not is another story. But at least mom will know that you love her “slow” much with our Mother’s Day Sloth Card.
Speaking of, for the mama sloth you will need cardstock in brown as well as a light yellow. The child sloth uses the same light yellow cardstock, but we used red and dark orange colors for our main color. Purple would be a nice child sloth color, too. The rest of the supplies include blue cardstock for the card, a fine tip black sharpie, scissors, glue or glue stick, and a heart paper punch.
