Okay, so it is now February and your desk is filled with beautiful holiday cards (Christmas, New Year, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah) that have cute pictures of friends and family members.  Don't throw out these precious memories!  Work with your kids to create fun, beautiful artwork with the photos from old holiday cards.  UltimateMama has a few ideas of easy projects with holiday cards that you can do with babies, toddlers, and kids of any age:

– Scrapbooking:  Buy an inexpensive scrapbook and cut out pictures and names from the holiday cards and glue them into the book.  UltimateMama purchased a 12 inch by 12 inch scrapbook from a friend's school fair a few years ago and every year she helps her children decorate one page after each holiday season.  UltimateMama and her kids look forward to adding to their "friend photo scrapbook" every year and watching friends grow up! 

– Poster:  Buy poster board and loosely cut out pictures from the holiday cards and have fun decorating a poster for your child's bedroom wall or playroom.  Use markers, stickers, and glitter to add an extra special touch to your "friend photo collage"!

– Books: Punch a hole in the left corner of each card and attach all the cards together with a key chain ring so your child can flip through their "friend photo book" anytime and anywhere!
