We love all getting crafty for the kids and we love sending friends and family homemade Christmas cards every year. As the number of the kids’ friends grow, I think it is nice to get THEM to make their own cards – that way it is personal and thoughtful, but also, they don’t get tempted to give cards to everyone “just because”. Hopefully these Christmas card ideas will set you up for the next few weeks!
We made our usual Christmas Card Ideas video, followed by the links and additional ideas:
Christmas Card Ideas for Preschoolers
Cotton Wool Pad Snowman Cards – this is such a sweet collage for kids to make. Mine made these at preschool and were so proud to give it to me when they got home. Isn’t it adorable?
We had lots of fun with these easy Gingerbread men cards! Use your own cookie cutters to make these fun little cards with the kids. There is an updated version of these in our New Paper Projects book too, that I think you will love!
Textured and tactile Gingerbread house collage. These Gingerbread houses are so fun to make and a great way to explore shapes! Love the different patterns and textures.
Oh these Santa Star Cards take me back to my own childhood. Happy memories!
Keeping things simple and fun with these Christmas Tree & Sequins Cards for tots! They make great cards OR you can string them up as a garland too!
We love combining ornaments with greeting cards to make “Ornament Cards” a gift and a card in one. These easy Button Snowflake would be just perfect for that!
