Color your own cards (for the kids):

We're still finishing up our Christmas thank you's around here.  I like my kids to participate in some way so they will (hopefully) start the habit of saying thank you from a young age.

Ellie had so much fun painting her own cards last year, that we decided to do it again.

I made a few simple-as-can-be designs and printed them out for the girls to color and paint. 

As soon as the papers were dry, I turned them over and wrote a few words of thanks.  I plan to send them off in pretty vellum envelopes.

If you'd like to print a few off for your own kids, you can find the file here

Happy card making!


  1. Oh this is perfect. I've been wanting something like this so my three year old could participate in "making" thank you's. Thank you for sharing again Randi!


  2. That's a neat idea -- to have the kid make the card that includes your writing inside.

  3. I had my 3 and 5 year old make cards too. I like how yours actually say "Thank you" on the front. I think the recipients will appreciate that the boys were involved in the process.


  4. These are perfect! Thank you for sharing them!
