Christmas Cards to Colour
I recently bought a pack of the Usborne 20 Christmas Cards to Colour on impulse and have been so impressed with them, I thought I’d share them with you all. I bought them because it seemed a fairly effortless way of creating individual personalised Christmas cards from the kids, which they would enjoy doing, would require little input from me, and which would still hopefully look good. You may ask why I’m not making them from scratch with the kids this year as I usually do. The answer to that is that I do plan for us to make some, but I like to have some variety, there are lots of cards to send, and I’m more than usually pushed for time this year.
My overall impression on receiving them was that they were considerably better than I had expected them to be for the price. I was pleasantly surprised to see that far from being completely white, the cards were actually coloured, with only selected areas of the main subject left white for colouring in. The inside and the reverse was also coloured. The cards were also printed onto a good quality matt card, with each one different. All of this gave them a quality look and feel way beyond my expectations.
My 6 year old coloured them in beautifully with no input from me, and my 4 year old enjoyed the activity too, though his colouring skills are still a bit rudimentary. All in all, at just £4.89 for the pack (with free postage) I felt that these cards represented excellent value for money and can thoroughly recommend them if you want to send a variety of personalised cards created by your kids, with minimum effort, and of course no mess (if you’re bothered about that kind of thing).
