No matter what cards you choose to use (and perhaps reuse again!), the thought that you put into it is what will be most appreciated.  A personal card that has extra effort written on it is so special.

There are so many choices here to match the right card to the right person.  They will feel the care that was put into creating a beautiful, handmade card.

And, if your child is coloring a card for a friend or a sibling, they should absolutely pair it with this fun birthday present scavenger hunt.

I think this is an especially great idea for kids because it not only gives a personalized feel to the card, but the kids will also feel like they really had a big part in making the card.

You can encourage them to think about the person the card is for, what their favorite colors are, and how much they will appreciate their amazing artistic stylings.

This helps children work on their confidence as well as their artistic abilities.  At any rate, it is always good to be able to connect your children with doing kind things for others.

It is a bonus when they feel the joy that comes with doing something kind for a person they care about.  Enjoy these fun cards and as always, you’ve got this!
