These gorgeous DIY Christmas Cards are incredibly easy to make and are perfect for kids to make themselves.

We set up our own creative station at the dining table using  pre-made cards, buttons and scrap paper and turned our Christmas card making into an activity for the whole family.

It was great fun and if you intend to send multiple homemade Christmas Cards, then this might be the way forward.

While my elder daughter favoured simplicity, my preschooler preferred a colour and some random positioning, which highlights the beauty of this simple craft – it’s open-ended and inclusive!

And if you need any more convincing, our DIY Christmas Cards will give those little hands a fine motor work out!
