Thank-You Cards

Make Note

Turning your thank-you card into a mini art project is a great way to get your kids in the spirit. Pick supplies from this clip-and-save list, check out our ideas, and let your kids create a fridge-worthy card.

Grab These Supplies

  • note cards or colorful paper
  • crayons, markers, or colored pencils
  • paints and paintbrushes
  • stickers

  • decorative stamps and washable ink
  • glitter
  • glue
  • safety scissors
  • envelopes and stamps

Steal These Ideas

  • Take a photo of your child with the gift, print it out, and glue it to the note.
  • No camera? No problem. For a personal touch, your child can draw a picture of himself using his gift.
  • If your kid's penmanship isn't the best, give him letter stickers to spell out important words.
  • In a time crunch? Use some of your child's old artwork (we know you have plenty). Just fold in half and let him write on the blank side.
