Hands-On Holiday: Making Thank-You Cards

The season of giving and receiving gifts is upon us, and as you gear up to give, don’t forget to give thanks! Making and writing a thank-you card doesn’t have to be hard or hard to get your little one to do. It’s a fun and easy project, and today we are here for more Hands-On Holiday fun to show you how easy it can be!

8-1/2″ x 11″ sheet of plain paper
8-1/2″ x 11″ sheet of craft paper
Decorating materials (scrap paper, artificial flowers, stickers, etc.)

1. The first step is to take your plain paper and craft paper and fold them together. Horizontal or vertical, whichever you like best!

2. If your craft paper is larger than 8-1/2″ x 11″, just trace around your plain paper to get the right size to cut out.

3. For this step, you are going to tape your plain sheet of paper to whatever craft paper you have chosen. Don’t forget: You can use recycled materials from the holidays (wrapping paper, tissue paper, bows), and if you don’t have craft papers, coloring is always a terrific idea and adds a personal touch!

4. You can use anything you have in your home for decorating your thank-you card. I always keep my scrap papers so I have some small accents to put here and there. Don’t forget to recycle things you have around the house, like artificial flowers, stickers, or even labels!

5. After you feel you have decorated to your heart’s content, make sure to write a memorable note. Don’t just say thank you—describe why you loved the gift so much; the more personal the note, the more memorable the thank-you card. After that, you are all done and ready to give your thank-you card!

Happy holidays!
