Christmas Card Making For Kids: Holiday Card StARTers



This resource includes 10 different card “stARTer” ideas. They are designed to start the creative juices flowing in your students. Some of the starter designs are more intricate than others to help provide you with some differentiation options.

Each child is given a “stARTer” to their picture that will become the front of a greeting card. They will then write a nice message inside and give the card to someone special! Please encourage your students to be as creative as possible and dream up any design they can using the small portion of a picture that has been provided to them. This activity will allow your students to show their individuality and creativity and give them a place to start making their Holiday cards/Christmas cards!

There are 10 “StARTer” ideas included along with step-by-step instructions to use with your students. 


Easy for Teachers & Fun for Kids!

My students loved creating those holiday cards. I will use this activity with my classes again next year! Thank you!

The card starter was great for my students. They become confident and super creative after just a simple starter:-) We worked on the cards then sent them to a local nursing home to brighten up their holiday!
