Tis’ the season to be jolly, cheerful, happy and spread merriment. It calls for the lovely traditions that keep the spirit of Christmas alive in our hearts. One such beautiful way to kickstart the festivities is to snail mail thoughtful Christmas cards from you to yours. There is just something very special about sending and receiving Christmas greeting cards. While people no more make a big song and dance about sending Christmas cards, it is still a tradition that manages to touch the heart of everyone.
If the kids want to indulge in some Christmas card making this year instead of picking something up from the store, here are some great ideas that they can choose from:
Fingerprint reindeer Christmas cards – Children never have a problem getting their hands dirty and thus, fingerprint reindeer Christmas cards make for an extremely fun and entertaining activity. These cards need all the family members to press their fingerprints along an outline on card paper. After finishing all the fingerprinting, children can transform the same into unique reindeer prints.
Palmprint Santa Christmas cards – The most ideal Christmas cards from kids, this one too lets kids indulge in some messy fun. The little ones must dip their palms into any preferred color of paint before pressing the same against card paper. The Santa must be then designed around this palm print. These Christmas cards are great to make especially if the kids are very young and you are short on time. Moreover, grandparents and other family members are bound to cherish these cards as a memorable keepsake even when the kids grow up.
Pasta wreath Christmas cards – The pasta wreath Christmas cards prove to be the most beautiful creation. The activity costs very little and yet is very effective. All the kids have to do is paint some bow shaped dried pasta in green and paste them in a wreath shape on a bright colored paper. Sprinkle some glitter onto the pasta and finally finish it by adding a satin ribbon bow at the bottom of the wreath.
Sending out these cards that are handcrafted by the kids will be a wonderful thing and it is bound to put a smile on the face of everybody who receives them.
