It’s starting to feel more and more festive around here. We have our Christmas cake and pudding maturing in the cupboard. The kids Christmas Lists have been submitted to Santa. Our Advent Calendars are all set. And I have festive jumpers on standby!

Now it’s time to get serious about making our Christmas cards. We have already made a few Bubble Wrap Bauble Cards for family members, so it’s time to move onto making Christmas cards for their school friends.

Bella is starting to make good friends in Preschool, so making her friend’s a home-made Christmas Card, is a lovely way for her to show them how much she enjoys playing with them and learning from them. She loves messing around with sticky tape, so I decided to use some special Christmas Washi Tape, that I picked up for a discount supermarket recently, to make decorations for her cards.

Our Book  Green, Crafty & Creative: Natural & Recycled Activities for Kids. would make a great Christmas gift for a Crafty friend.

How to make Washi Tape Baubles Christmas Cards for Kids

Cut out circles of card ahead of the activity.

Help your preschooler to tear off strips of different coloured Christmas washi tape.

Encourage your child to wrap the strips of tape around the circle of card, until it is completely covered.washi tape christmas cards for kids making

Glue the bauble shape onto the front of a Christmas Card.

You or your child can then use a silver pen to add on a silver thread above the bauble, so that it looks like a bauble hanging on a Christmas Tree.
