- Art Attack kit
Purchase an Art Attack card-making set. Art Attack is manufactured in the United Kingdom, so you may have to order the sets online if you don't live in that part of the world. Online retailers that sell Art Attack include www.craftsuperstore.co.uk and ebay.com.
Set up your child's work area on the kitchen table, or another spot in your home where he'll have plenty of room to make his custom birthday cards. Make sure to put newspapers or an old tablecloth over the work surface to protect it from paint, glue or glitter.
Review the greeting card layout ideas with your child that come with each Art Attack card-making kit to help her think of ideas for her own homemade cards. Depending on the age and ability of the child, you may want to supervise the card-creation process and assist with cutting, gluing and other tasks that some children may find difficult.
Assemble the embellishments that come in the Art Attack kit onto the outside of a blank card to create a birthday card layout. By experimenting with different design elements before permanently attaching anything to the blank card, your child will minimise mistakes and will have an opportunity to make the card as nice as possible. The contents of the kits vary, depending on the type of Art Attack kit you purchased, but embellishments often include a variety of coloured paper, sequins, glitter, shape cut-outs and wiggly eyes.
Adhere the design elements to the outside of the blank card and allow it to dry thoroughly. Once dry, your child can write a personalised message inside the card to complete the project.
