Christmas Card Art Project for Kids

I love giving my son arts and crafts projects at home. This Christmas greeting card project is super easy.

You will need:

  • 10 blank fold-over cards
  • Black sharpie marker
  • Kids markers
  • Glue
  • Gold glitter
  • Embellishments/stickers of choice

Use a black sharpie marker to draw the outline of a tree, and write each card recipients name on a card. Then give each one to your child to color them in.

Let them be creative! Green trees, or blue trees, in the lines or out of the lines – just have fun and let them explore their creative spirit.

Then for the parents, use the glue and just draw a simple zig-zag on each tree. Then sprinkle with glitter.

Lay the out on the table and let them dry for an hour or so. This will make the next step less messy.

Then let your child use the embellishments/stickers as “ornaments” on the trees. We used holly and snowflakes, found at the local craft store.

Christina is an odd combination of a perfectionist that insists on things happening organically, or according to nature. She wants to have all the control, yet leave life up to chance, and it is a concept that she admittedly constantly struggles with. Her love for her family puts a spark in her eye that only happens with movie effects. She has three best friends from childhood and does not see a need for more. A self proclaimed hermit, she laughs at the hypocrisy of her love for party planning. Christina’s message is the importance of slowing down, and reclaiming joy by surrounding yourself with people and things you love. "I am going to make everything around me beautiful," she says, "that will be my life."
