Christmas Crafts for Kids: Handmade Christmas Tree Cards

Handmade Christmas cards -

Christmas crafts for kids, handmade cards kids can make

It’s a family tradition.
We’re starting early
so it’s not an impossible mission.
It helps my daughter’s writing skills.
My craft addiction it fulfills.
Something different every year.
To bring a little Christmas Cheer.
This card only takes a few minutes to do.
It’s super simple too.

 

First, you will need these supplies, plus some tape would be wise.

Have your child pick a leaf.
Use two or more for a motif.
Tape them vein side down

Do you like to make Christmas crafts with your kids?

Would you like to buy these? I am taking bids.

Just kidding.  We had so much fun making our cards that my daughter wanted to make even more!  And that’s fine with me, then I don’t have to buy any.  The only problem you might have is keeping a creative kid in the house.  I did!  Audrey wanted to search for all different kinds of leaves to make different leaf patterns.  I think it would be fun to try pine needles or ferns.  You could even cover the card with your leaf patterns and place a festive holiday greeting over it.

Do you have any Christmas traditions?  I would love to hear about it. Please leave a comment below.
