Kid gifts are made with love and care, they brighten up parent’s day like nothing else. This card is a wonderful reminder of a special bond that exists between parents and children. No matter what happens in life, children will flourish with support from strong figures in their lives.
This card will definitely put a smile on mom’s, dad’s, grandpa’s, or grandma’s face. I included a couple of different versions of the card, but each carries this meaningful message – “Strong roots produce beautiful leaves”. I picked up this idea from an amazing teacher I used to work with. There are two black and white pages for a child to color in the tree using different pencils, paint, or make a craft using craft materials and decorate it according to their taste and artistic imagination, for example,
- paint with dot markers
- use round stickers
- paint using acrylic or watercolor paint applying large brush strokes
- make corks prints with paint
There is space for a child to draw his or her face and faces of their favorite people. Photos can be used instead. I suggest printing cards on cardstock or laminated in the desired format – as a card or gift tag. These are perfect for St. Valentine’s Day or Grandparents’ Day celebration.
