Every Ostara, also known as the Spring Equinox, we take that as a chance to send our family and friends some happy mail. I use any excuse I can to send grandparents and great grandparents cute little gifts from the kids. I made up this Ostara Cards free printable template to make it easy for you to as well. Kids love to be involved, and sending mail is so much fun! Plus, maybe if they are lucky whoever they send mail to will reciprocate and send them back a surprise in the mail too!
My friends and family are used to my eccentricities. I am the only pagan in my family, but lots of pagan-friendly friends and family. I think even if people get cards that say Ostara on it, they don’t care as they take it in the spirit it was meant. It’s more fun for everyone as they get to learn something new, and not following the Pagan wheel of the year it’s a surprise when they may receive a random gift from us. Seriously, make friends who are part of a different spirituality, it makes things much more unexpected with extra holidays around and you learn so much!
Do you prefer to do things paperless? You like to save the environment? Or simply want to save time and resources by doing it all online? I have another option for you too, I got a sample at Paperless Post to try out their really cool site. It’s a great alternative to still send some fun cards to your family and friends, but a lot easier as you can do it all online. Some really fun ways to customize a card to send to someone. It’s easy to find individual cards for each person you want to send a fun surprise too, there are even free options so make sure you check it out!Want to #connect with friends & family?

Ostara Cards free printable template
- Scissors & tape
- Ostara Cards free printable template PDF (or use the graphic below)
- Packet of seeds for every person you want to send it to
- Glitter glue and other decorations
- Envelopes & stamps
Tip: Write the names in the “to” and “from” section BEFORE letting the kids destroy it with glitter glue, it’s REALLY hard after and not nearly as pretty.

I did a similar post last year, because I love sending seeds so much to my family I do it each year! Check it out below for different card ideas.
