children’s christmas cards

We always make our own Christmas cards.. this year we continued the tradition we started last year of using drawings by Oliver and Cyan. They drew their seasonal characters which I scanned and made up into cards..

Cyan drew Santa.. a snowman.. and two Christmas trees, one with legs?!

Oliver’s featured a penguin.. a Christmas tree.. and a robin..

Cyan had copied this Christmas message reading ‘Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year’ from a Christmas card we had been given, so I scanned it in for the inside of her cards, she had also written her name beautifully with lovely curly letters, I just had to add this to the back of her cards, along with the harp-playing angel from the top of one of her trees..

I asked Oliver to write a greeting to go inside his cards, he came up with
‘Ho Ho Ho Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!’

They have both been very busy colouring all their cards, and writing them out to all their friends and teachers..

By the way, Oliver is 7 and Cyan is 5.

Here are their card designs from last year.. Cyan’s with an angel..

and Oliver’s.. a penguin.. yes, the boy has a thing for penguins!

  8. What a great idea! The perfect eco solution and less likely to go in the trash. This is the first year we did not do cards. Can't do it all as a temp. single mom I guess. Happy Holidays and wishes of health, abundance, time to create and joy for 2011, mymommymakesit
