Making a personalized birthday invitation for a party is a fun project for kids. Grade-schoolers can work with you to come up with a design for the card, pick out colorful images, and cut out pictures. Creating birthday party invitations lets kids express their artistic side and lets them flex those developing fine-motor skills as they cut and glue pictures to make their cards. Plus, making your own birthday invites can save money, which is a very good thing when you are trying to host a party on a budget.

To make this fun birthday party invite, you will need the following:

  • Colorful magazines or catalogs
  • Scissors
  • Construction paper or card stock paper
  • Glue
  • Fine-point marker
