First make a hand print of your child’s hand and set aside to allow time to dry. While you’re waiting you can cut the card to the size. I used a size that I knew I had an envelope for 5×7. Then once it’s dry it’s time to make a card.
On the inside left write your greeting, we wrote “Blowing you Kisses.” Cut your child’s photograph to hide under the hand print and attach to the right side.
Attach the folded hand card to larger card. Then on the side write the occasion you’re sending it for. We wrote Happy Grandparent’s Day Love, (Child’s Name). Since my little one is only 9 months old I didn’t have her write but when my 5 years makes this card she will be writing the text herself and I would suggest anywhere from ages 1 years old up to have them make their own marks on the card to personalize it more for their Grandparents. It teaches your little one the that text has meaning.
When my Five year old got home from school she found her sisters card and had to make her own version! Thought you might enjoy! It’s so neat to see how one project can change into many different ideas. She chose the design and layout. She also came up with the idea to join the two hands for other Grandparents.
