We’ve been teaching our two year old son some basic sign language these past few weeks. Watching him learn how to communicate in new ways has been a thrill… And it’s inspired me to create these adorable Grandparents Day cards!
Here’s what we used to create them: colorful cardstock, a pencil, scissors and glue!
First, find some colorful paper. You’ll need two different colors or patterns for each card.
Open up and print out our “I love you…” template. Click on the template you need from the options below:
- I love you Grandpa & Grandma!
- I love you Grandpa!
- I love you Grandma!
- I love you Nana!
- I love you Papa!
Cut your card out following the lines provided. Fold you card in half and decorate the inside.
Now trace your child’s handprint onto a different color of paper and cut out.
Glue the handprint onto the card. DO NOT glue down the middle- or ring-fingers!!
Put a dab of glue on the tips of the middle- and ring-fingers. Fold down and glue to the front of the handprint. (You may have to put a little pressure on them until they partially dry.)
Now let your child decorate or write a message inside each one and – viola! – you’re done!
For an added touch, we decorated the outside of our envelopes as well…
I also decorated the back of the envelope with “Happy Grandparents Day!” and two stick figures of my little ones.
