Magic Christmas Cards to Make with the Kids

My eldest charge had to make a Christmas card for school (back in October) as part of a competition so we did a wax resistant one. Unfortunately he didn’t win, even though his card was truly amazing. As it turned out so well back in October I thought it would be a good idea to make a few more to go with their Penguin footprint cards, that way they could choose which design they want to give to their friends.

While they were out at school and nursery I cut up some white paper and drew on the design using a white crayon. When it came to them painting the piece of paper the drawings appeared like magic.

To make your own wax resistant cards you will need:

  • White crayons
  • Water colours
  • Paint brushes
  • Card stock in white and any what ever colour you want for the card
  • Scissors
  • Glue


  1. Draw your picture on the white cardstock
  2. Using the water colours, paint over your drawing
  3. When the picture has dried cut it out and stick it onto your coloured card stock
