I decided that it would be fun to make our own invitations for O's upcoming 2nd birthday party, and I involved O in the process as much as possible.
I bought a pack of cardstock, and O painted about 10 sheets (over several days) with her dot painters. She kept asking to "paint more intations." I added a few dots on several sheets because she said she was "done!" after putting only a few dots on a sheet :)
Then I cut each sheet in half and folded them. Notice her feet in the top right hand corner. She was VERY excited to see her feet in this picture!
Then I typed out the invite and printed it, glued it to blue construction paper (her favorite color), and glued the construction paper to the card. The next step is stapling the cards closed and addressing them. That's the hard part because we don't have a stapler, and I only have about half of the addresses that I need. We've had lots of fun with this project, and it was great to have O so involved in planning for her own birthday party!
