Greeting Card for Kids

Here's a greeting card for kids:
Tis the season for greetings--right?
Mother's Day, Father’s Day, Graduation, Congratulations, Good Luck, I Miss You, Thinking of You, Friendship, Veterans or Memorial Day...

Greeting card occasions go on and on.

Anniversary, Inspiration, Birthday, Thank You, Appreciation Day, Holidays, Get Well, Sympathy, First Day of School, Parent Orientation, Welcome, Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, New Years Day, Grandparents' Day, Valentine’s Day, Self-Esteem, Art Lesson and more...

Here is a simple Greeting Card for all Occasions printable.  Kids can fold it in half, color, and write a message inside.  I've included dozens of suggested greeting card messages including:
  • Let's reach for the stars!
  • Thank you for all you do!
  • You're beautiful inside and out! 
 Kids can glue tiny tissue paper balls on the front of the card like my kids did.  

They can also print the image on pastel, neon, or classic colored paper, or on card stock.  They can glue the top sheet onto a construction paper shell if they choose.
I've also added a printable insert with a lovely border for a picture, and the option of 3 or 7 writing lines.

This greeting card is a "beautiful hand," pop-art confection, with a universal image of love, friendship, hopes and dreams.
It's a good lesson in the etiquette of kindness.  In the age of texting, it's nice--and startling--to receive a personal note that someone took time and thought to create.

Kids love creating a card that's beautiful, no matter what their artistic skills.  It's all about the love.
