DIY Halloween Greeting Cards

You can save money and still have lots of fun with your kids when you make your own Halloween greeting cards.

And it's not only the kids, because the adults and the entire extended family can bond together and build terrific memories when you work together and create those cards. Best of all, it's easy.

From example, you can simply surf the web and download various Halloween themed designs. Once you print out those designs, you can even place them on stiff paper cut out in the shape of standard greeting cards. Alternatively, you can head over to National Bookstore and get a set of all-white greeting cards (with envelopes).

You can also find coloring book templates online, which depict Halloween scenes and images. Your kids (okay, you can also do a bit of Crayola magic yourself) can color these images for that added creative touch.

If coloring is not exactly your thing, you can get a bunch of colored paper and have your children cut different shapes and produce a Halloween collage of sorts, or even a mosaic kind of image. There are many ideas you can draw from: spiders, ghouls and ghosts, spider webs, pumpkin patches, witches, the moon, a black cat... The sky is the limit when you let your imagination fly! And best of all, you won't even need a witch's broomstick. ;-)

Not feeling that artistic? No problem. Just dress up your kids in their Halloween costumes, grab a digital camera, and take lots of photos. You can then paste these Halloween photos onto black construction paper, and then send these via postal mail to relatives and grandparents.

Is the line quite long at the postal office due to the Halloween rush? Go ahead and scan your art work or photo collage, and then send it via email to friends and relatives. You can even do a bit of Photoshop editing for cool Halloween image effects.

As you can see, there are lots of fun activities you can share with your kids this Halloween. It's a great way to build memories (and add to your beautiful scrapbook), so go ahead, don your Hallow's Eve costumes and show your magic as you create those boo-tiful greeting cards.
