Kid friendly motivational banner

Motivational banners are really fashionable at the moment. I made a cute little one at Blogtacular last weekend and thought this would be a fun craft to try at home with the children.

How to make a kid friendly motivational banner:

With Sports Day coming up I wanted to make something easy to read and to the point. I found some brilliant faux leather silver letters in The Works and knew these would work perfectly.

I chose a brightly coloured card and cut out my banner shape. I drew lines in pencil to use as a guide for lining up my letters.

Once I had the letters in the right place I rubbed out the lines. I used a punch to make holes at the top of the banner and added a length of bakers twine to hang it.

I made one for my son with the words “Try Your Best’ as I say this to him a lot. I made one for my kitchen too which says “Mother Knows Best”, influenced by watching Tangled one too many times with my daughter.

The finished motivational banners are fun and form a great display alongside the little banner I made last week. easy kid friendly motivational banner

    “Mother Knows Best” is my favorite! I don’t think my kids would agree though haha. #LetKidsBeKids
