Last week it was daddy's birthday and as usual I made some home made cards with the girls. I had loads of coloured paper and lots of lentils in the craft cupboard but not much of anything else (I really need to get some bits before the next birthday, I keep forgetting).
We drew around a couple of stamps to create a car and plane template, I used these to cut out several of each on the coloured paper and allowed the girls to stick as many as they wanted on the inside of their card.
We then cut out a bit of white paper to make a road (I didn't have black) and added a couple of cars and a plane in the sky.
The girls then decorated their roads with macaroni and cars and planes with lentils and a bit of cotton wool for the clouds. They looked pretty good although would have looked better if I had had all the right colours of card etc. The girls were proud of their cards and wrote, or in Little 2's case, scribbled inside.

Do you make home made cards? What could we do next?
