Printable Mother's Day Colouring In Cards, Bookmarks & Questionnaires

Mother's Day is coming up really quickly and may end up sneaking up on some of us, especially this year. If you're looking for a simple and easy Mother's Day gift then have a look through these printable Mother's Day colouring in cards, bookmarks, questionnaires and booklet templates

Whether you're looking for something easy for the kids to do with little preparation, or just need a last minute card or gift option for mum, you're sure to find something in this list. The best part is they can all be printed off and decorated at home with minimal supplies and add a personal touch to mum's special day. 

Child holding crayons for colouring in

Colouring in is a great activity for little kids, especially those who can't write yet. It gives them lots of pencil grip practice as they grasp the crayons, pencils or pens and it doesn't matter if they don't stay within the lines. There's no right or wrong way to colour these designs and each piece will be 100% unique.

For older children who are learning to write, or already know how to write, the questionnaire templates provide lots of opportunities to practice letters while writing special messages for mum. They'll also make great keepsakes for mum to look back on with fond memories.


Before you download the following printable Mother's Day cards, bookmarks or templates, make sure you have printer paper on hand and art supplies to colour them in like pencils, pens, crayons or paint. If your supplies are dwindling down to a few broken crayons and some dried out pens {because for some reason kids never put the lids back on properly} then you can easily pick up most items quite cheap at dollar stores, stationary stores, department stores like Kmart and Target and most supermarkets have a stationary aisle. You can also find many art supplies online at places like Etsy, Catch, Riot or in my Amazon store.


Colouring in cards are probably the next best thing to completely hand drawn cards. Simply print off the templates and let the kids colour them in however they like and you'll have a unique piece of artwork and card in one. They're much easier, cheaper and quicker to make than wandering around the shops trying to find the perfect Mother's Day card. I've put together our favourite free printable Mother's Day cards below.

Most mum's love to hold onto anything sentimental, and it doesn't get much more sentimental than a Mother's Day questionnaire or poem from the kids.
