Trick or treat thank you cards

Just a quick fly by post today. I have a lot of sewing and drawing and cutting out to do this afternoon! I've talked before about how we try to give something in return for the treats that we get at Halloween, just to offset the feeling of trick or treating being a grabathon. In past years we've taken cookies around with us to give to neighbours along our trick or treat route, but this year Carys wanted to make them a Happy Halloween card, so she drew this spooky picture and I scanned and shrunk it for her so that we could print out four little thank you cards to one sheet of paper.

They are just black and white so that you can print them easily and colour them if you want to. I think she's just going to write "thank you" on the inside of the cards and give one to whoever is handing out candy at the doors we knock on. She's very proud of them. If you'd like to print some too then just click on the thumbnail image below to get the full size image (which fits on US letter sized paper). Or if you have time let your kids draw their own.

Happy Halloween!

Love this idea, L! I'm printing some out right now!

Perhaps next year we'll draw our own; coloring them in is all we'll have time to do this afternoon. So thanks so much for making one available. And LOVE Carys's artwork!

Fantastic artwork, Carys! Our halloween went by in a flash, with nary a slow moment to do any crafts. Alas. The girls would've loved this. Want to draw something for Christmas? If I printed it out now, it might get coloured by then. Ahhhhhhh. I love your blog, Linds. I'd stay here and surf old posts forever, but I must force myself to go to bed. You have a good week!

Ah yes, a Christmas one would be fabulous! We don't do too much about Halloween over here in Aus but it is gaining momentum, kids love it.
