Something Fun to Entertain the Kids

Dec 4, 2013

When I was a lit­tle girl around the age of 3 or 4 my mom would go to an elder­ly lady’s house to do her hair. This lady had an awe­some album filled with greet­ing cards she put togeth­er for lit­tle ones to flip through. I remem­ber sit­ting on the floor look­ing at page after page in this album. I LOVED it so I thought of a fun idea for young kids dur­ing hol­i­day gath­er­ings.


Find some old Christ­mas cards and if you are like me you have lots. I found this one that works per­fect­ly for this type of project. You will want one that you can cut the face out of (snow­man, gin­ger­bread man, San­ta, Elf, Rein­deer even ani­mals will work great).

Card 2

Using a craft knife cut out the face on your card just as I did in the pho­to above. I was real­ly wish­ing I had some tinier pho­tos for the two small­er gin­ger­bread men but I did­n’t… total bum­mer!

Card 3

Now using a pho­to that the head size is sim­i­lar in size as the card, sim­ply tape it to the back of the cutout. It’s as sim­ple as that and how enter­tain­ing for kids to see them­selves as Hol­i­day char­ac­ters. I think a sim­ple pho­to album filled with cards altered with kids and adults would be very enter­tain­ing for the lit­tle ones dur­ing par­ties and fam­i­ly gath­er­ings.

Card 4

This would also be a cute idea to use as gift tags. I think the recip­i­ent would find it most enter­tain­ing see­ing them­selves in char­ac­ter. If you cre­ate some­things with this idea I would love for you to share a pho­to or two with me. I think it would be a fun post to see how oth­ers inter­pret this con­cept. Have fun!
