I always try and make the effort to send out homemade thank you cards from my son where he has had at least SOME involvement! When he was a toddler this usually meant cutting up pieces of random artwork and folding them into cards. We’ve also used tree-shaped cookie cutters as paint stamps for Christmas thank you cards – then decorated the trees with sequins.
My son recently had his 5th birthday party (Hot Wheels theme!) and he was lucky to receive so many gifts! I wanted to come up with a quick way of making a lot of thank you cards – and I remembered the letter stamps that he got in his Christmas stocking – perfect! To make these cards we used:
- White card cut in half, then folded in half
- Letter stamps *
- Ink pad *
- Glitter glue, stickers, and/or sequins
*This set from Melissa & Doug includes upper case and lower case stamps AND an ink pad!
I made one card in advance so that he would have something to copy. My son happily got stamping!
The next day I surprised him with one of his favorite craft materials – glitter glue!
He then covered the glue in sequins (these are from a Spangle Mix from craftprojectideas.com that we’ve literally had for years and the bag never seems to get any emptier!).
These aren’t Pinterest-perfect cards. These are genuine kid-made cards, splodges and all. Here are four of the cards he created:
