Every Christmas, I’ll have Alex make a few cards for those special people in his life. Although he grumbles and complains about the actual work, I know that ultimately, it gives him immense satisfaction to know that he makes the recipients extremely happy. I purchase blank cards from art supply or craft stores (5″x7″ is a good size) and Alex’s favorite medium for this purpose is Crayola washable markers which is essentially mess-free (love the vibrant color as well). All our art ideas come from our favorite art blog – Art Projects for Kids. It has great step-by-step how to draw tutorials, and that’s what Alex uses to draw freehand on the blank cards. These handmade cards simply make a delightful and thoughtful gift. Don’t you think so?
