9. Digital DIY Valentine’s Day Card
This card was created by my 8-year-old Jay. He designed this using MS Paint with the idea of selling it. He’s a real entrepreneur, I’d say! Anyone wants to support his little card designing business, please let me know! 🙂
MS Paint is an easy too to use for kids to design cards. Just choose the fonts, shapes and colours and they can create almost anything they want. Most computers have MS Paint installed, so you can easily get your kids to try it.
