Card Making Basket


I recently set out a little basket of card-making supplies for the girls to make Halloween cards. I kept it simple with pre-folded card stock and a variety of stickers. Sticking stickers is always a popular activity with my girls, so I knew they would be excited to see the basket.


The girls had a great time and made quite a few adorable cards, which will soon be in the mail to surprise a few folks. They enjoyed this activity quite a bit and I plan on doing this for many more holidays in the future.


The card-making basket could be quite adaptable for any age of child or any occasion. Here are some other ideas for items that could be included.

Card Basket Supplies:
markers
crayons
scissors
glue
glitter glue
paper punches
construction paper, scrapbooking paper, etc.
ribbon
buttons

Have fun with the supplies and let your kids be creative. You never know what wonderful ideas they may come up with. Plus, think of all the people that would be thrilled to open up their mailbox and find a homemade card. I know I would be!
