My daughter loves to send mail and give presents, so we use any excuse (usually seasonal) to send out some cards to people. It’s a great activity to do with kids and really helps to build the excitement of a holiday. I love how it teaches her about giving to other people. It is better to give then receive, let’s drill that into them now!
- Packets of seeds
- Printable for cards
- Scrap paper
- Envelopes (if mailing)
I cut out all the printables and had my daughter pick out the scrap book paper and type of seeds to go with each person. We glued the printable on the front and the seeds on the back. Then she decorated some with markers and stickers, depending on her mood.
We had a blast and it took up over half an hour of the dreaded “witching hour” as we were waiting for daddy to come home on Friday afternoon and have dinner. She asked to make some for her Nursery School teachers too and loved handing them out to family, teachers, and a few friends. Plus of course dropping some off in the mailbox.Celebrate Spring by mailing your friends & family #greetingcards Click To Tweet
