Do your kids send thank you cards? The MiniMad’s send thank you cards they have made every year. Last year it was thumbprint Robin thank you cards, this year it is fingerprint monster thank you cards.
We love giving fingerprint monster cards as they encourage people to get creative and add their own monsters to the blank fingerprints. Plus these are easy to make, if you have smaller children they can just do the fingerprinting and you can add the rest.

- Ink pads or fingerpaint
- Blank cards
- Fine tipped felt pen
We use whatever card we have, this was A4 folded in half. Then the boys stick their fingerprints all over the card.
I am slowly learning to sit on my hands and let them so the crating directly less and letting them express their creativity. This might not make for perfect cards, but it does make for totally kid made ones that they are so proud of.
Them they turn some of their fingerprints into monsters, but you could turn them into pretty much anything.
Make sure that you leave some blank for the recipient to complete though!
As these are thank you cards, Maxi chose to write Many Thanks on the top, but this is where you can add your greeting.
