Simple craft makes a great gift for family
* Sheet of construction paper
* Stickers (craft stores have great varieties)
* Digital Camera
* Computer and printer
* Photo paper or nice card stock
* Crayons, markers (optional)
* Clip art (optional)
This is an easy craft for all ages and makes a great Halloween gift for the grandparents.
Take a sheet of construction paper (color of your choice) and fold it in half to make the card - the orientation is up to you.
Take a photo of your child in costume and then print on photo paper (you can also order prints if that's easier).
Let your child place stickers and clip art on the cover of the card. Craft stores such as Michaels have great foam stickers like the ones we used, which let the kids be a little more creative. But any Halloween stickers will be fine. You can find lots of free clip art on the internet and print it out, cut and paste.
An older child can use crayons or markers to write "Happy Halloween" or draw pumpkins or other decorations.
Glue the photo on the inside of the card and your child can decorate the rest of the inside with drawings or stickers. Let the glue dry and then it's ready to be delivered!
