With teacher appreciation week, Mother’s Day, birthdays, and Father’s Day coming up it seems like we are in need of a card every other week! I decided we should make our own cards to give! It is a super simple craft and makes a real personal touch when sending someone a card!
All you need is paint, paintbrush (or hands), paper, and card stock. Painting Hack: I always lay down a Dollar Store table cloth so the mess is easy to clean up! I used colored construction paper to paint on. I put a few dots of different color paint on the paper then let Millie brush away. We made one with pinks and purples and one with greens a blues. You can do any colors you want! It is endless.
Once the paint dries all we did was cut out designs. I did hearts for Teacher Appreciation and Mother’s Day, and stars for our Uncle and for Father’s Day! Cut out whatever shape, Letter, or design you want and glue it onto the card stock that is folded in half like a card. I did all of ours where it opens like a book, but you could do it opening bottom to top too!
After the glue dried we wrote our notes on the inside. Simple as that. Millie had a blast making it and I know her teachers and our family will love the personal touch of her art work!
