Xmas Card with Kids

Portland is snowing heavily. While the kids are staying home due to school closure, we made Xmas cards together for their cousins in east coast. They were so excited after finishing the cards. They mailed out the cards right away. One boy forgot the road was still icy. He ran too fast and slipped, and bumped his head.

Anyway, I started out by letting the kids choose window shapes: circle, oval, rectangle, or wonky window. They wanted circles at first, but as soon as they saw the wonky windows, they both wanted the wonky shape.  Next I showed them a couple of Xmas character stamps for them to choose from. They chose this cute moose from MFT (the little one was just following his brother).

I let them turned the handle of my die cutting machine to cut out the windows. I stamped the images for them and they colored everything themselves (well, the little one needed some helps with coloring the moose but he picked all the colors). The most exciting part for them is sprinkling shaved ice in the window. After I put all the window pieces together, they taped the moose in front of the window.

It was an easy card project, even for five and three year old boys :)
