Holiday Greeting Card Creators for Kids

It is the time of the year for sending greeting cards. This is a great opportunity to have students practice letter writing (yes, some people still like letters) and to practice design skills. Here are two good services that your students could use to design and print holiday greeting cards.

One of the "hidden" features of Storyboard That is a collection of templates for creating holiday greeting cards. In this video embedded below I demonstrate how to create greeting cards on Storyboard That.

Canva is a free graphic creation tool that I use to create a lot of the graphics that appear in my blog posts and Facebook posts. Canva makes it easy for anyone to create great looking graphics in all kinds of shapes and sizes. Canva offers free templates for creating holiday greetings. In this video embedded below I demonstrate how to use Canva to create greeting cards.

On a personal note, over the weekend we made some hilariously bad attempts at taking a photo for our Christmas card (you try getting a 16 month old, a 6 week old, and two dogs to cooperate). Eventually, we decided to embrace the chaos and just use the outtakes in a collage-style Christmas card.
