Card Craft for Kids


There are many great card crafts for kids. One is called the Cards of Wonder, which are to be sent to favorite authors.

What You'll Need:

A good book is like a good friend. Reading about people in other countries can make you feel like you're actually in that place. Make a homemade thank-you card to send to a favorite author of a story set in another place or about people of a nationality different from yours.

Fold a piece of construction paper into quarters to make a greeting card shape. With markers, draw characters and scenes from the story on the outside of the card.

Inside the card, write down all the things you liked about the story and how glad you are that the author wrote it. You can send your card to the author in care of the company that published the book.

Did the book surprise you? Teach you something new? Let the author know!
