DIY Toddler Thank You Cards / Art


After Maya’s birthday this year, I thought it would be a good idea for her to have a part in her thank you cards.  This is a super easy, relatively fast DIY that you can do with your toddler or…on your own 🙂  You could do these for thank you cards, or even frame them as art!Blog DIY Toddler Glitter Thank You Card Art-1What You’ll Need…

  • Blank Note Cards with Envelopes.  I got mine at Target on clearance, but you could get some at any craft store.
  • Glue
  • Glitter
  • Cookie sheet lined with tinfoil.  You could just lay out an old sheet/newspapers, but I like to collect all the unused excess glitter and save it :).

What to do…

  • Lay the blank cards out
  • Let your toddler drizzle the glue all over.  I had to rotate the cookie sheet a few times and guide her around so that there wasn’t just a big puddle haha, but she got the hang of it.  The best part is that it’s her design!Blog DIY Toddler Glitter Thank You Card Art-2 Blog DIY Toddler Glitter Thank You Card Art-3 Blog DIY Toddler Glitter Thank You Card Art-4
  • Sprinkle glitter over the top and then shake off excess.Blog DIY Toddler Glitter Thank You Card Art-5 Blog DIY Toddler Glitter Thank You Card Art-6 Blog DIY Toddler Glitter Thank You Card Art-7 Blog DIY Toddler Glitter Thank You Card Art-8
  • Let it sit until it dries.
  • You can write your thank you message on the back with a note “Handmade by…”

The above images are the 2nd set we made recently.  Here’s the ones she made for her birthday.  I love that she’s super proud of them, and that she has a part in the actual “Thank You” process 🙂Blog DIY Toddler Glitter Thank You Card Art-9 Blog DIY Toddler Glitter Thank You Card Art-10Have fun!dit-elle-Lauren
