DIY "Give Thanks" Accordion Cards
Our church takes Thanksgiving dinners to people who cannot get out to be with family for the Holiday and our Children always make cards, and these cards turned out to be the best yet. Really fun and easy and look really nice.

Not Worth the Money
The product came on flimsy paper and I should have made it myself instead of spending the extra money on it

Flimsy but clever
These are pretty flimsy so you have to be careful that the letters don't tear apart as the kids are coloring them. The shiny cardstock makes colored pencils or cheap crayons hard to use - I'd use markers. The clever design is so unique, though, that it worked perfectly for my project... It would take a LOT to make them look as colorful & nice as the sample - I'm having kids write what they're thankful for in various colors of markers on each letter, and if they want to outline the letters, fine - but coloring them all in, I'm afraid they'll all be torn apart.

Nice quick project
This was a great solution to the need for a quick project in children's church for a large number of students. Budget friendly, and a fun novelty for kids to take home, and depending on the embellishments used, an easy clean up. Quality was good enough to stand up to young children.

i was looking for a Thanksgiving craft that would be a nice addition to the family's holiday table. nothing could have been better! the kids can/will make it their own & the price was awesome!
we are a small church that is working on a budget.

Hope to use these with a grade school service club. Only drawback is that they should use permanent markers. Children tend to be messier and don't take their time with markers. Lefties will probably have a smear factor with these, too. I would prefer a cardstock that could be used with colored pencils or crayons for children.

We were so pleased with these last year that we used them again this year. We also decorated tables at our Pearl Harbor luncheon. we plan use them every year.

Great Way to say THANKS!
My 5 yr. old Sunday School class colored these foldable "Give THANKS" with the Porcupine Ring Painters. We used three Fall colors. We needed to let each color dry inbetween colores. We also added some punch out leaves. They looked so nice and quite 'professional'. Parents told me that they used them on their mantel, front window (facing out) and two parents used them for their table centerpiece. It was a total hit! Since I've purchased the DAD foldable also.
