Lawn Fawn Hearts Cards for Kids BLOG HOP



Hello and welcome to the Lawn Fawn Hearts Cards for Kids Blog Hop! We have all come together today to make cards for this wonderful cause, Cards for Kids! We hope to encourage you to also make cards for this great cause and have fun along the way, too! So please hop along with us, and make sure to leave comments as there will be prizes for commenters and participants! So let's get going! Also, if you are lost in the hop, you can start at the beginning HERE.

I always like to make cards for kids interactive like this one I made for today...The front of the card says, "Can you help Rocky the Raccoon find his friend?" and yes, I put some glossy accents on his mask to give him a little shine...The inside opens to reveal a maze! ...Get your kids involved in the card making process...I had my teenage step-son draw the maze for me. He is going to do mazes with different difficulty levels for each card depending on the child's age. :)

HERE and HERE and HERE are some more examples of interactive cards for kids.

I know that sweet Kelly is giving away prizes but I want to give out a prize too! :) Just leave a comment to this post telling me your favorite stops along the way of this blog hop that inspired you to create a card for Cards for Kids...and I will enter you to win this stamp that I used on today's card...I'll pick a winner tomorrow morning. (ETA: Extending it until Friday morning!) Happy Stamping!

NEXT STOP ON THE BLOG HOP: Jenn

I still have lots of hopping to do, and I am sure there will be others along the way. I do know that everyone has done an amazing job of making and sharing their cards and that deserves a round of applause. Thanks again.

I really liked the blogs with the children who participated (canyoupixelthis was one of them. It warms my heart to see children getting involved. I also liked the bookmarks that were made as they can be used over and over as the children read their books. Love the little raccoon and the maze you used also. Interactive cards will give them something to take their mind off their troubles for a short time. Thanks for sharing.

theCook said...

That raccoon is so cute! Very good idea to make a maze. Can't say which stop I liked the most. They were all so different!

Connie F. said...

I love the maze card. Kids love to do puzzles, etc. It is very appropriate for a kid who needs to occupy theirself on something other than being sick. I hope I'm not toooooooo late.
