Day #48 – Polka Dot Thank You Cards

I like bold and graphic design.  I also like finding simple crafts that kids can do that yield cool looking results.  So, this is what I came up with as we were designing thank you cards for Grandma.

My dot paint fit in a 3/4″ x 3/4″ square, so I drew out the grid and cut off any excess.

Next, I just let the girls start polka-dotting their grid.  In the end, I cut out the size I wanted, put it on some brown paper and printed out the “Thank You!” in typewriter font.  Abby was able to write most of hers with spelling help, and I wrote things out for Kenzie.

    What an adorable idea! I LOVE making homemade cards (have ever since I was a little kid). Whenver we need to write a thank you, birthday, congrats, etc card my kids always make them! I think it’s way more special receiving a card specially crafted by them! :-)
