Homemade Christmas Cards
Help your students make greeting cards for their loved ones this holiday season with these inspiring ideas from Disney's FamilyFun! The kids will love crafting them and their families will enjoy the handmade sentiment. Here are a few of our favorite designs!
Nothing makes a card (or any art project for that matter!) more special than a handprint! These cards are sure to become instant keepsakes. Your students will need to cut Santa's hat from a piece of red crafting paper and attach two small wiggle eyes, but the rest of the card is created using assorted colors of kids craft paint and hands - a white handprint beard, two rosy fingerprint cheeks, a red fingerprint nose, a black fingerprint mouth, and fluffy white fingerprint trimming on Santa's hat!
If you're in a pinch, nothing is simpler than this gingerbread house card! Not only does it make use of recycled cartons (e.g. orange juice, half and half creamer, whipping cream, milk, etc.), "decorating" is a snap with packages of stickers found at your local office supply store or online teacher supplies store!
You can use:
- Name badges for the gingerbread house door
- Assorted circle labels (both large and small) for decoration
- Hole reinforcement labels for decoration
