A few weeks ago we were challenged to make something using glue and I came up with a really clever faffy idea that I thought would be awesome. And….uhhhh….it was rubbish. I mean it took days to set, it was all clumpy, when it finally dried I didn’t even feel like showing it to the kids. That bad. Thankfully though I have my two little superheros on hand and they are always ready to save the day. “Mummy, can I make a card for my friend” so he did and we did and these simple Christmas cards kind of saved the day for us.
You will need:
Christmassy sellotape or washi tape
Star shaped stickers
Glue, we used Bostik Fine and Wide Gluestick
How to make your Christmas card:
From your green card cut out a large triangle, older kids can do this themselves while younger kids will need a hand. The tree triangles can now be decorated using festive washi tape or sellotape. Washi tape is often easier for kids to use as they can tear it while sellotape will need cutting. When the sellotape is in place wrap the ends around the back of the tree to neaten it up. At five years old my son was able to do most of this himself but at two my daughter needed the sellotape to be cut into small pieces for her otherwise it would get a bit screwed up which understandably upsets her, she likes the small bits though because this makes it like stickers for her.
Once your child has finished decorating their tree use your glue to stick it onto their card. My son added a glittery star onto the top of his to make it look more like our Christmas tree!
