Creative and adorable HOMEMADE CHRISTMAS CARDS FOR KIDS to make for friends and family this Christmas.
Today, I’m sharing some easy homemade Christmas cards your kids can make and give for Christmas this year. All of these cards are easy to make, and involve fun art techniques. Whatever you choose, your kids will be proud to give these cards this Christmas, and the recipients will be touched by these precious keepsakes.
A homemade Christmas card from a child is much more meaningful than a store-bought Christmas card could ever be. It’s an innocent expression of a child’s creativity, and a keepsake that can be treasured and displayed every Christmas for years to come.
My kids have always made their own Christmas cards for their grandparents, aunts and uncles and even their teachers. Not only is it much less expensive for them to make their Christmas cards than to buy them, making their own cards allows them to express their love and gratitude creatively, and the recipients always find them so heart-warming.
Every year, I have my daycare kids make homemade Christmas cards too, to go along with the homemade gifts they’ve made for their parents and grandparents.
We’ve made some pretty sweet Christmas cards over the years, so I thought I’d round up a few of our favourites for you.
All of these homemade cards are easy for kids to make with minimal supplies, and each one provides a fun, creative process for kids who enjoy getting crafty.
The materials used to make our Christmas cards are inexpensive, and likely things that you already have around the house.
Hopefully our kid-made Christmas cards will inspire you to make some with your kids or students this Christmas.
