12 Days of Christmas – Christmas Cards

xmas05-01

My girls love to make cards. Angie likes to dictate the message she wants inside which leads to random but sweet cards.

Materials:
As many A5 pieces of cardboard as you need
Pink and yellow paint
Small scraps of fabric/scrapbooking paper
Some black/brown wool
A black marker
Pencil crayons
Glue

I folded the cardboard in half and got Angie to make a pink thumbprint on the front cover of each card. Then we stuck a piece of felt onto the card, just below the thumbprint, to make the body of the baby.

Then I drew in eyes, a nose, and a mouth, and drew a manger.

We frayed the wool and glued a tiny bit on top of the baby’s head. Then we made fingerprint stars with the yellow paint.

I wrote Matthew 1:23 on a piece of cardboard and glued it inside the card.

While making the cards, I spoke to the girls about Jesus’ birth. We sang songs like “The Virgin Mary had a baby boy” and “Away in a Manger”.

Look! The virgin will conceive a child! She will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel, which means ‘God is with us’. – Matthew 1:23
