Hello, this is Jeanette Conner, and today I'm going to teach you how to make Christmas cards for kids for parents. For this project we're going to need a bright green sheet of card stock paper, lots of glitter glue and a red crayon, color pencil or marker, whatever you have around for your kids. So, you're going to fold the paper in half. Then, on the front, using your green glitter glue, you're going to make the outline of a tree. We're going to take the stopper out first. Using washable glitter glue is good 'cause if your kids get it somewhere they can clean it up. So, we're just going to make the outline of Christmas tree using glitter glue, near; I love using glitter glue with kids because no matter what you're drawing, even if they can't draw all that well yet, glitter glue looks fun and beautiful and exciting. The more fun they're having, the better. And I'm going to use some blue glitter glue for snow. I just make squiggly snow down here, and maybe some drops of snowflakes coming down. And then on the inside, using your other colors, make ornaments and lights. So, I'm just going to do big red dots, maybe some hanging off that branches like that. Just have fun. And then of course, you don't want to forget the star up at the top. And then on the inside, just have your kids write whatever special message they want. You might want to spell it out for them on a separate piece of paper so they can copy it down. I'm just going to say, "Happy Christmas Mom and Dad". And there is your card. This is Jeanette Conner, and today, we learned how to make Christmas cards for kids for parents.
