Cards For Kids

Good Morning!

Mandy and I are in the process of working on some Cards for Kids. I came across this very worthy project on Jennifer McGuire Ink. This is the third Card drive that she is doing, and these cards will go to some very sick kids in Children's Hospital, and their families.

I can't tell you how much fun I had looking for cute papers to use. Here are the first few cards we made. These have a froggy theme:

The jokes on these are:
Why are frogs so happy? They eat whatever bugs them!
What happens when two frogs collide? They get tongue tied!
What does a frog say when he sees something great? Toadly awesome!
What is a frog's favorite game? Leap frog!

The insides are done as well. We ran off some mazes, word searches, and dot to dot games to include inside.

Mandy made some really cute 4 X 4 cards. These would be perfect for little hands!

Here's a closer look at the mermaid card. The inside says, 'because they live in schools."

The question on this one was, "What is the most valuable fish?"

We are truly having a blast making these simple cards. We hope you'll go to Jennifer McGuire Ink and check out the information on these card drives!!

If you can get some cards sent to her by August 31st, there are quite a few prizes that you can win as well, but really...that's an afterthought. What a wonderful thing to be able to bless some kids that are struggling every day just to live, and who really need the encouragement!

Thank you for visiting!!
