Greeting Card Costume

Time: 1 hour

Effort: Easy – no sewing required

Materials:

  • Two pieces of poster board
  • Markers
  • Ribbon for shoulder straps
  • Hole punch
  • Dark-colored clothing

Instructions: Choose your theme. Draw a theme-related picture on the front of the poster board (a cake for a birthday, a pumpkin for Halloween, or a tree for Christmas).

On the other piece of poster board, write an appropriate greeting: "Happy Birthday,", "Happy Halloween," or "Merry Christmas." Then sign it "Love, _______" (your child's name).

Punch two holes at the top of each piece of poster board. Slide the ribbon through the holes, then tie it. Have your child dress in the dark clothes, and then hang the poster boards from his shoulders.
