Grandparent’s Day Cards

We’ve been teaching our two year old son some basic sign language these past few weeks. Watching him learn how to communicate in new ways has been a thrill… And it’s inspired me to create these adorable Grandparents Day cards!

Grandparents Day Cards 01

The hand symbol above means “I love you” in sign language. I can’t wait to send these out to our grandparents and great-grandparents! (This year Grandparents Day is on Sunday, September 8th.)

Here’s what we used to create them:  colorful cardstock, a pencil, scissors  and glue!

First, find some colorful paper. You’ll need two different colors or patterns for each card.

Now trace your child’s handprint onto a different color of paper and cut out.

Glue the handprint onto the card. DO NOT glue down the middle- or ring-fingers!!

Put a dab of glue on the tips of the middle- and ring-fingers. Fold down and glue to the front of the handprint. (You may have to put a little pressure on them until they partially dry.)

Now let your child decorate or write a message inside each one and – viola! – you’re done!

For an added touch, we decorated the outside of our envelopes as well…

I hand printed the addresses in fun patterns and wrote “Two wonderful grandparents live here” with arrows to the address.

I also decorated the back of the envelope with “Happy Grandparents Day!” and two stick figures of my little ones.
