Toddler Fun Series: Making Greeting Cards

Rhys' last day of daycare was a week or so ago and in preparation, he made cards for all of his teachers.  I was really surprised by how intently he worked on these, and for how long. This was a huge winner of an activity and I'm so glad . . . it means I'll always be able to come up with a meaningful, adorable card at a moment's notice!
Materials needed: Blank greeting cards (or folded over paper) and decorations.  We used: watercolors, markers and stickers.
Toddler time consumed: 45 minutes for 5 cards, in rotation: First he painted all 5, then he stickered them, then he drew with markers.
Toddler approval rating:  9 out of 10 stars.  He LOVED this project!
