20 Holiday Cards To Make With Kids

Like the tradition of writing letters by hand, I love making cards of my own. Sadly, this practice is dying rapidly, and may already be extinct in many places. In order to preserve this beautiful tradition, I hope to make at least a few handmade cards a year. The holiday season is a great time to bring out the art supplies, as Christmas offers many creative themes for handmade cards and gifts.

It's also a good way to get the kids involved. Besides, cards made by children are extra special and also serve as keepsakes. Close friends and family would love getting such cards, each of which would be unique and personal.

I've put together a list of twenty holiday card ideas, classified by theme, that you can help your kids make. In fact, they are so easy, the kids will be doing most of the work!

20 holiday or Christmas cards kids can make


Snowman handmade holiday cards

We made our own Textured Snowman Art which would make a lovely card with a pop-out effect.

Check out this Snowmen Outline Card with lots of stick-on accessories on Teach Me Mommy.

These Fingerprint Snowmen on Crafty Morning look great for a card with a personal touch.

An interesting painting technique has been used to make this Pointillism Snowman on Meaningful Mama.


Reindeer handmade holiday cards

There are some good ideas on handmade Christmas cards, especially this Reindeer Handprint Card on Be A Fun Mum.

An easy one is this Reindeer Pom Pom Card on Hodge Podge Craft, and there's a free printable template included!

Using thumbprints is another creative way to make a Reindeer Sleigh Card, on Crafty Morning.

Another simple idea is to make this Potato Print Reindeer Cardon Our Little House in the Country!

A creative and fun technique has been used to make these Bubble Wrap Christmas Cards on Learn With Play At Home.
