The Easiest-Ever Way to Make Christmas Thank You Cards With Your Kids

(This post contains affiliate links.)

I always have the best intentions when it comes to thank you cards.  But I'll be darned if I don't have the hardest time actually getting them out the door.

(I swear, I'm working on it)

I really am trying hard to instill this habit in my kids.   (The actually sending them, not the not sending them).

Since my oldest is not quite at the age of completely writing them herself (at least not without asking me how to spell 'the' for the 387th time) I find myself wanting them to put a little DIY effort into the outside of the card even though they might not do much of the writing on the inside.

But like I said, I have a really hard time getting these suckers out the door.

The last thing I need is some sort of complicated DIY involving at least two craft stores, some kind of adhesive andGod forbidglitter.  So seriously, join me in keeping it simple this year and having your kid hand make the easiest-ever Christmas thank you cards.  Here's what you need:

  • Notecards
  • Stickers

That's it.  No, seriously.  And the kids will have fun with it and the grandparents will think it's adorable and you'll feel good about your parenting because you actually made your little one participate in the thank you note process.  And you'll feel EVEN BETTER that you didn't let lofty DIY dreams keep you from actually sending out those damn thank you notes.  You can even make them before Christmas if you want to be an over-achiever.

Have notecard.  Stick Stickers.  Life is good.  You can drink your coffee while they do this.

To make life even easier, I've compiled a few note card/sticker combos that would be perfect for this endeavor.  Just Amazon-prime that stuff to yourself and skip the stress of lugging your kids around in sub-zero temperatures.  Or crazy-ass long lines at Target.  Whatever it takes to save a few shreds of sanity this time of year.

Happy crafting!
