Would you believe that it has been a full week since we started with Blank Christmas Cards Advent Countdown with Kids?
Today we had a bit more time and both of my girls enjoyed playing around with glue and ribbons! Ribbon Collage Christmas Baubles Card is sooo simple to make and great way to use up all those ribbon scraps we had laying around!
For today’s card we used mostly things we had at hand:
- colored cardstock for a card
- pieces of different ribbons (scraps)
- piece of cardboard for baubles (anything will do)
- glue and scissors
Give your child something to trace circles on the cardstock. We used a cup and piece of cardstock from recycle bin. If they are old enough, let them cut circles by themselves, if not, cut it for them. Apply layer of glue on circles and let kids arrange pieces of ribbons (cut them to be approximately as wide as widest part of a circle). When they cover the circle with ribbon, turn it around and cut off extras. Arrange and glue circles – “baubles” on card and add drawn hangers. And you’re done!
We love that our ribbons were with so many different textures, excellent practice for sensory skills and fine motor skills! My toddler girl applied glue and added ribbons by herself. Other parts of the process had to be prepared in advance (cutting circles from cardstock, cutting extra ribbons).
Here are few more ideas for Christmas cards you can try with your kids:

- Christmas tree collage cards from Creative Family Fun (age 2+)
