Homemade Birthday Cards

Homemade Birthday Cards

What we found was that buying cards was very expensive and my kids have many, many relatives and they all wanted to see pictures of the children as they grew because, unfortunately we didn't live close to these relatives. 

So when it came time for Birthdays, Christmas, Mother's Day or Grandparents Day, my kids would select from the most recent photos a picture that they really like and incorporate it into a card with construction paper and other art supplies. 

The kids enjoyed making them and it gave them time to think about the person receiving the card. They could also so their creativity by writing a poem or a note in the card!
