Handmade Christmas Card Activity

Christmas15

Christmas idea’s

Encourage your children to get involved with this activity, as mentioned yesterday making a Christmas card for others says to them you are loved and valued enough for me to take the time to make this special card for you.

You’ll Need…

  • Coloured A5 card
  • Glitter
  • Glue
  • Christmas stickers / Christmas wrapping paper / last years recycled Christmas cards
  • Cotton wool
  • Scissors

What To Do…

Fold you A5 piece of card in half (you can use the card horizontal or vertical). Have your child cut out the pictures from the wrapping paper or recycled Christmas cards; if you have really young children then it may be easier for them to use the stickers. Place the pictures onto the card and once you’ve made a nice design glue them down.

Next put random spots of glue onto the card and stick small pieces of cotton wool onto the glue leaving some glue spots and then shake some glitter over the card, leave to dry.

Once dry depending how old your child is, help them to write the card.

Check in with us on Friday for instructions on making Gift Tags with kids.

Here’s a Christmas Elves Working Colouring printable.
