I encouraged all the kids to make their own gifts for people on their lists this year. James made up little Lego family postcards, which was a ton of fun for him. If you go to this link, you can customize your own cards by adding mini-figures, pets, a background, and a greeting. I downloaded the finished postcards and re-sized them with Picasa before printing them out. We put the finished postcards in inexpensive 3 x 5 acrylic frames. The recipients were thrilled.
I meant to put this up before Christmas in case anyone out there needed a
last-minute gift idea for a kiddo to give. Alas, I never got around to
it, but it would work equally well for a birthday or any occasion where
you need a quick gift. Or just for your own family. Ours is my new favorite decoration.
Till next time!
