Recycling Holiday Cards

Are the holiday cards stacking up at your house like they are at mine?  Here are a few fun activities to do with them after the holidays.

Cut the backs off of the cards and then cut the front of the cards in half (either horizontally or vertically.)  Now you have a fun matching game for your child.  I do this with a bunch and then put them in two piles and have my 2 year old find the matches. 

For older kids, cut the front of the cards (or let them cut their own) into puzzle pieces and have them put the “puzzle” back together.  They can glue the pieces together on a separate piece of paper to make their own card or reuse the pieces over and over again. 

Go over to Rocks in My Dryer for more Works For Me Wednesday  for more great ideas.
