Each child draws or paints a picture on an A4 sheet of paper. For very young children this could simply be a handprint or finger painting. The pictures are sent to a company who will turn the drawings into packs of Christmas cards. You then sell the Christmas cards and the profits go to your organisation. A way to make money which also leaves the children feeling very pleased and proud that they have created their own packs of Christmas cards. And if you are feeling artistic, you can join in too and create your own cards. There are several companies who will turn your pictures into cards. We have used and can recommend the Kids' Card Factory.
