A mum has been praised for coming up with a brilliant solution to getting all the Christmas cards signed within minutes, meaning you won’t get a sore hand and you won’t make any spelling mistakes!
A smart mum has taken to Facebook to share her handy solution on how to get the Christmas cards signed at superspeed.
The woman explained that her six-year-old daughter wanted to write out her Christmas cards, but due to hypermobile joints in her hands, she gets fatigued quickly. Knowing she had to write over 80 Christmas cards for family and friends was therefore becoming a worry.
To make it easier for her daughter, the mum ordered a personalised Christmas stamp, which would sign the cards in her daughter’s handwriting.
The clever mum wrote: “Christmas card writing hack for kids.
“I got my daughter to write the following, scanned it and made a stamp from it. Will make the Christmas card writing task so much easier.”
The woman said that to follow this tip, all you have to do is get a piece of paper and have your child write their message on it.
Then you simply scan it into the computer to make sure that you remove all the background – this can be achieved with the help of Photoshop.
The mum then went onto Vistaprint to make her stamp and then she was able to get her daughter’s Christmas cards complete at a quick speed.
She added: “They write so much at school that at home her tolerance is low.
“Last year she wrote all her cards in stages, maybe 4 per day but I wanted something easier this year as time is flying and there’s so much school stuff to do before the end of the year.
“She will still be writing the To Name on the card and the Name on the envelope. She writes about 80+ cards between friends, teachers and family.”
Many parents were left impressed by the hack and took to the comments to the praise the useful idea – which doesn’t have to be used for just Christmas cards.
One mum wrote: “What a fantastic idea! Well done Mumma and thank you for sharing!!”
Another added: “Oh how I wish this was around when my 4 were in primary giving cards. Time saver lol.”
