Students and their families have been through a lot during the COVID-19 pandemic, so Mother’s Day and Father’s Day this year will provide a great opportunity to celebrate the connection and care of all types of families.
Our new Color Code Card is a quick activity that kid creators of all ages can use to recognize any mothers, fathers, caregivers, or guardians in their life. Just follow the steps below to share this special message with a side of STEAM!
- An Ozobot robot (Evo or Bit)
- Color Code markers (or any markers in the shades of red, green, blue, and black)
- A printer
- Glue or double-sided tape
Create Your Card

The printout has a card on page 1 and cutouts on page 2.
- On page 2, color in the hearts and the words “I” and “YOU.” (Tip: Don’t color in the heart on page 1).
- Ask an adult for scissors, then cut out your hearts and the words “I” and “YOU.”
- Fold the words at the dotted lines.
- Fold the card (page 1) at the fold line.
- Apply glue or double-sided tape to the bottom of “I” and “YOU”, matching the numbers to the numbers on your card.
- Using the Color Key provided, fill in the blank Color Code boxes on the heart.
- Decorate the front of your card with hearts (and your own drawings, if you’d like!).
