Artsy Postcard for Kids

Make something crafty with your child today with the Artsy Postcard for Kids project! Christine and her daughter Angelique made this postcard as a way of showing their creative side. They enjoy spending time together making crafts and bonding and this free craft project can help you and your child do the same! We love the rich Plum Krylon spray paint color they used in this paper craft project.
