In the run up to the festive season we like to share a lot of Christmas cards for kids to make and this fun Christmas pudding card has to be one of my favorites – it’s just so instantly recognisable as what it’s meant to be and feels so Christmassy!
I love that this Christmas card design doesn’t need to many expensive materials either. You’ll need some cardstock to make the card itself but even the white cardstock could be swapped for white printer paper if you needed.
As well as this design I’m also sharing some of my favorite Christmas card ideas for kids to make so you can create fun personalised cards for everyone in your family, your kids teachers or any friends you think would appreciate a bit of Christmas cheer.

Christmas Pudding Card
To make this cute Christmas pudding card you’ll need to start off with some brown cardstock, mine was part of a big pack of colored card I bought in Lidl (if you ever see it, grab it, it’s brilliant) but you can also buy packs of card online which is great if you want to make these with a group – I’m hugely regretting that we can only make one at the moment. Fold your card in half to make the main shape of the Christmas card design.
Next you’ll need some cream or white card to make the white sauce on top of your Christmas pudding.
Ideally, square your card up onto the cream colored card so that it will be flush against the edges and then cut down so that you will have three sides all flat against the edges of the card, however if you are making this card with younger kids then don’t worry too much about getting your card ‘Pinterest perfect’ – anything made with love is the best thing to receive after all.
Once the three straight sides are cut, cut a wobbly line for the edge of the cream and stick the ‘cream’ onto the top of your card using glue.
Next cut out holly leaves and holly berries from red and green card or paper. If this is too tricky for your child (particularly if you are making this with a toddler or preschooler) you might want to cut out the holly shape for them as it can be a bit tricky.
Another alternative for making this Christmas card is to draw the holly on, I love these pens as they will normally show over any color that I draw them on to.
Finally add your raisins onto the brown part of the card, I’ve again used these pens as they show really well on darker cards (felt tips sadly often don’t). If you don’t have chalk pens like these then a marker pen like a Sharpie might be a good alternative.
With that your card is done, all to decide now is who to send it to!
