Easy Christmas Card Craft for Kids

Holiday Card craft for kids

This weekend we have been getting into the holiday spirit listening to Christmas music, baking Christmas treats and making holiday cards to give to the grandparents and other family members along with their Christmas gifts.  I believe that there is nothing better than giving a gift that has been made by you and that is specially true for my kids and their grandparents.

Holiday Card craft for kids

We decided to make some last minute cards and we used materials we already had around the house:  black card stock, green foamy, white felt, glitter glue, self adhesive jewels , goggly eyes, christmas themed ribbons, a snowflake stamp and toothpicks.

The kids came up with the idea of what they wanted to include in the card. My daughter wanted a snow man and my little man wanted a Christmas tree and he wanted to make it a pop-up card as he had received one recently and loves doing new things when making crafts.

Wishing everyone a wonderful Holiday Season and a Merry Christmas. May 2014 bring you all wonderful things!

    This is such a cute craft idea. I like it when people give instructions for kids crafts that kids can actually do and enjoy doing.
