Easter Cards Children Will Love

I make cards for my grandchildren for every birthday and holiday.   Sometimes I wonder why I bother because occasionally they barely look at them before they are off to the gift,  and other times, they seem to really appreciate the gesture.  I have found that the trick to making an appealing card for kids is to use an identifiable image (like a super hero, cartoon character, or an activity they enjoy).  Other types of cards kids love are just colorful, pretty or full of glitter, and lots of texture and interest.  In other words...the gaudier and busier the better.  When making cards for kids, throw all the latest card idea trends out the window, and simply make something you know they will love!

For my grandchildren's cards this year, I used lots of color, critters, and texture.


These adorable felt bunnies and eggs can be found in the Easter aisle of any craft store.  They have a fuzzy texture, and multiple layers of interest.  One of the eggs is covered in glitter.


The felt pieces have an adhesive back so I just peeled off the paper and stuck them to a blue card base.  I then hand cut some grass out of green card stock and glued it in front of the eggs.

The rainbow and clouds are made from an MFT die, but you could very easily hand cut your own rainbow and clouds too.  If I didn't have the die, I'd cut a rainbow out of white paper and use markers to create the different colors.

I finished the card with a sentiment stamp, but again, if you don't have stamps, just hand write it!


My next card is an example of how you can create a pretty card without stamps.  Tulips are the easiest flower to draw, so I just hand drew tulips onto white Cardstock, cut them out, and then glued the white flower panel to a blue card base.


Once again,  I added some felt critters I found in the Easter aisle of my local craft store.  I cut a circle for the sun out of yellow card stock.  The clouds were made with an MFT die.  I stamped the sentiment on a separate piece of paper, cut it out, and glued it to the card.  


The eggs are covered in glitter, making it appealing to any youngster.



I hope I have inspired to make some Easter cards for your own children or grandchildren this year.  I will put the cards I made for them into their Easter baskets.  Come back next week Tuesday to see what I else I made for their Easter Baskets.

Have A Great Day!  Amy

  3. I know what you mean. My son skipped opening the cards first when he started eyeing his birthday gifts. I had to ask him to open them first before the gifts. Even then, I could tell he was interested in what's in the "boxes." I love how these Easter cards are so colorful. The felt eggs and bunnies are perfect for texture and little hands. These are truly a work of heart Amy! I hope your week is going well so far and happy Tuesday!

    1. Thank you! I think it's important to teach kids to open and read cards first so they appreciate the meaning behind the gift.

  4. Amy, these cards are so cute! I like the attention to detail you put into preparing your cards—knowing that kids enjoy identifiable images—and the way you added texture with felt and glitter. My teenaged sons wouldn't enjoy these, but maybe when grandkids come along I'll be able to craft these. :)
