Kids Craft DIY Thank You Cards

This is the time of the year that I make resolutions, but it’s also the time of the year that I’m busy writing Thank You cards. Actually, let me be honest, in theory I should be doing that, but sometimes I’m bad about it. And, I know we’re living in an online era, but there’s really nothing that can ever compare to receiving something in the mail, especially a Thank You card, don’t you think? That being said, I find when I make a craft project out of something, it not only motivates me, but also motivates my children too!

My two oldest daughter (ages 5 and 7) are now at the age where they love writing letters to people. Together, we came up with this Thank You card design. It’s a little Kraft/Parcel paper wrapped gift and pom-pom on top. I think it’s works well because it can be used for any occasion!

To make these crafty Thank You cards, your child will need:


Blank White Index Cards
School Glue
Hot Glue Gun and Hot Glue Sticks (optional)
Small Squares cut out of Brown Kraft/Parcel paper
Small Pom-Poms of any color (one color or assorted colors)
Envelopes (Tip: choose some large enough to fit the cards once the pom-poms are affixed)

step 1 and 2step 3 and 4

Step 1
Write thank you letters on one side of the blank index cards.

Step 2
Once you’ve written your letter, flip your card over to the other side. Cut out small squares of brown Kraft/Parcel paper and apply glue to the back of the square.

Step 3
Affix the brown paper square and glue a pom-pom to the top of the square. You can glue the pom-pom with school glue or hot glue (your choice). The hot glue will provide a more secure hold and will dry faster.

Step 4
Write “Thank You” next to the Kraft/Parcel paper gift with marker.

Now you’re ready to mail! Slip the card inside an envelope large enough to fit the pom-pom (which are a tad bulky) and then mail your letter.
