Kid's Art

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

Inspired by a child's drawings of snowmen, this card, from the Erickson family of Burbank, California, is a treat for both the sender and the receiver.

Materials

  • Sheets of plain paper
  • Sheets of patterned paper
  • Card stock
  • Pens or pencils
  • Color copy service
  • Glue stick
  • Scissors

Instructions

  1. To start, draw several 3- by 3 1/2-inch squares on a sheet of paper, and have your child draw a snowman in each square. Have color copies made and cut out the pictures.
  2. Cut an 8 1/2 by 11-inch sheet of card stock in half, then fold each in half to make two cards. With a glue stick, attach patterned paper from a scrapbook store to the front of the card and then a snowman to the patterned paper.

Tips:

Inside the card, use photo corners (available at craft stores) to affix a photo of your kids or family.
