10 Minute Crafts – Easy Christmas Cards Children Can Make

My little ones are really into arts and crafts, and we love making cards together. We always try our very best to make our own Christmas cards and to have the whole family included one way or another.

This year, we went for painted Christmas trees and each card took no more than 5 or 6 minutes to put together. We made a few cards but after half an hour or so, the three girls had had enough. To avoid a meltdown, we made one large version of the tree that I scanned and printed onto card. Win, Win!

What you need:
