Before The Boy was born I used to spend hours looking for the perfect Christmas cards which would complement my chosen wrapping paper and the theme of the year. Then along came a perfect little being who looked incredibly cute dressed up in a Christmas costume, and he would be duely photographed and the image printed onto the front of personalised Christmas cards. This year he's going to be three and a half at Christmas and I just can't do it to him anymore; so in addition to traditional Hallmark cards, he's going to be making cards for family this year.
Here are some very simple cards that your pre-schooler can make within a few minutes.
- red and green card blanks
- blue card blanks
- white paint
- green felt
- sequins and stars
- bauble card blanks
- felt pens
I'm not going to do a ste-by-step guide because the photos really show how self-explanatory the cards are!
One tip: start making them now because pre-schoolers are not known for their ability to sit down for a few hours and make cards, then write them!
