40 Homemade Cards for Kids to Make

There are plenty of homemade card ideas out there, but how many of them are kid-friendly? We pulled this collection of homemade cards together for everyone who would like some inspiration for cards that kids can actually make themselves.

40 Handmade Cards for Kids to Make | TinkerLab


If you’re familiar with Tinkerlab, you probably know that we appreciate child-centered projects, experiments, and open-ended creativity. So, for the most part, the cards shared here today have that spirit in their soul. These projects will give you a seed of an idea to start with. Once you set these card-making activities up, you can let your child get into their creative zone as they add their own ideas to the mix.


For easy navigation, these homemade cards are broken down into five categories: All Occasion Cards, Thank You Cards, Valentine Cards, Christmas and Hanukkah Cards, and Birthday Cards. But don’t let these categories dissuade you from mixing them up, as a Valentine card could easily become a Christmas card by swapping a heart shape for a tree. Thank you to all the blogs who let me share their homemade card ideas with us today!
