I think you will go a long way to find anything better than a kid-made Christmas card, so I am delighted to be sharing with you a month’s worth of fantastic Christmas cards all made by children, along with full instructions for making them with your own children. These DIY Christmas card ideas are perfect for doing with a group of children especially KS! and preschoolers. Although there is something for kids of all ages here.
I am delighted to be sharing these Christmas crafts from a host of amazing bloggers who will be sharing with you their best ideas for kid-made Christmas cards. We are hoping to inspire you to get creative with your children over the festive season. There is something for everyone and ideas for kids from toddlers to older kids. Grandparents love receiving handmade Christmas cards and Christmas gifts and I even have the first Christmas cards both my boys made (so do a lot of moms)!
Why not put together a simple Christmas craft pack for making all the cards

Homemade Christmas Cards
We demonstrate that kid made Christmas cards do not have to be complicated to be delightful and fun to make, they take very little time and we have some fun ideas for every capability. These really are my favourite projects and what I love as a mom.
My boys have been making Christmas cards each year since they were toddlers and they are now tweens. People love receiving them and always comment on them. They have become an integral part of our advent traditions. Make sure you click through and follow the links as you will find step by step instructions by each blogger for the greeting cards.
My boys also always leave a card for Father Christmas with his mince Pies and I make sure that it has gone before they come down on Christmas Day.
