Cardboard prints are a great way to make several cards that should look (almost) the same. They are quick and easy to make and printing is always great fun for kids!
30 minutes for the first card, 10-15 for the following
What you need:
1. Draw a tree onto a piece of cardboard and cut it out.
2. Stick a larger piece of cardboard onto the back of the tree.
3. Cover the tree with a generous amount of green paint.
4. Print it onto the white card.
5. Stick it onto your red card - fold it in half before you do as this will be your Christmas card.
6. Using the black felt-tip pen write "Merry Christmas" onto your card.
You can make several cards using the same cardboard tree - none of them will look quite the same which makes them all unique!
