Receiving a card that’s handmade by your little one will put a huge smile on any family members face. They’re perfect for grandparents, aunts and uncles, and your child will love getting creative too.

You will need

  • A4 coloured card
  • Felt tips
  • Scissors (adult supervision required)
  • Glue stick
  • Christmas stencils, which you can download here

How to make your Christmas card

  1. Fold one piece of coloured card in half as the base of your toddler’s Christmas card.
  2. Using the scissors, cut out the Christmas stencils your little one wants to use – the more the merrier.
  3. Once the stencils are cut out, your toddler can draw around them onto the other pieces of coloured card.
  4. Next, cut around the outline of the shapes you’ve created using the stencils and stick them onto the card base.
  5. Now it’s the fun bit! Your child can get creative and decorate their Christmas card however they like – add more colour using felt tips or  decorate the shapes using glitter, stickers and sequins. If you’re decorating with a particularly small child, make sure you don’t use any small choke hazards.
  6. Once their work of art is complete, let your little one give it to their chosen recipient – they’ll love such a thoughtful gift!
