My grandparents are always telling me that really all they want for birthdays or Mother’s day are lots of pictures to show off. So this year, J made a photo-filled birthday card for his great-grandma. This would be a great art project for toddlers to give at Christmas time.
All you really need is a stack of ziploc bags, photos and a stapler and/or duct tape. To make this activity last longer, I added construction paper and various art supplies to the materials. I set out the materials and J chose how to decorate each page (stamps, stickers, dot markers, crayons, rolling stamps, … hmmm that’s all I remember). He then chose which picture he wanted to place with each page and placed both his art piece and his photo into the ziploc bag. I stapled all the opened end of the bags together and covered it with fun green duct tape.
Older kids could write their own story, draw their own pictures and give their first published piece to grandpa or grandma.
