Handmade children’s Christmas cards

I love making Christmas cards with the kids but it’s hard to find quick and easy ideas which the kids won’t get fed up with making after producing just two. These fingerprints cards are beautiful, I have seen lots of examples of how fingerprints can be used for cards including fairy lights, choir singers and robins. We chose to turn Harvey’s fingerprints into these  gorgeous Reindeer.
