Here is a fun idea for a Christmas greeting you can create and send to your loved ones!

My husband’s parents live out of state, so we plan to email this image to them on Christmas morning, but you could certainly print this off and mail it via snail mail too!

Creating this doesn’t get any easier:

Have an afternoon crafting with your child making a reindeer headband from construction paper.

Then, paint your child’s nose red with some washable paint and have them pose for a few pictures:

You can upload your favorite pictures to picmonkey.com (if you are Photoshop illiterate like I am) and add some text.

Then send it off and rest assured it will certainly make the recipient smile!

Happy Holidays everyone!
