Any great Christmas card photo ideas?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I usually send out Christmas cards with a photo of my children on it. They have gotten cuter each year, but now I am out of ideas. Does anyone have any great ideas for Christmas photo cards?

I have done:

The kids in PJs in front of the fireplace holding cookies and milk for Santa and carrots for the reindeer.
A collage of photos of them baking cookies (stirring the batter, rolling out the gingerbread men, putting on sprinkles, eating them).
And the best - last year - an "I Spy" Christmas photo. I filled the area around the Christmas tree with various toys and took a picture of the children in the crowed space with a caption "I Spy: Four teddy bears, three dinosaurs, six toy horses, two drums, etc."

So now I need an idea for this years photo. Help, please!

How about a picture of them in a hot tub or pool?

Have you spelled out your last name with them yet?

Nativity scene?

Santa's workshop?

Snowman building?

Stocking stuffing?

Candy making?

Wrapping presents? Wrapping themselves?

Hope that helps a bit.

I think I remember seeing puzzle cards a few years ago and I'm betting you could find a puzzle template online. You print your cards on heavier than normal paper, then send the pieces in the envelope. The receiver puts it together and you can have a quote about a pieceful/peaceful holiday season or piece/peace on earth.

You could take a picture or two of each of the kids with their favorite things (favorite toy, book, people, pet, food, etc.), and then say something like "Wishing you a holiday season full of your favorite things..." on the card

Or if you're good at capturing candid pictures, you could try to get some shots of your kids with different expressions (laughing, daydreaming, etc.) and do a card with a caption under each photo like "Wonder," "Joy," "Laughter." Then you could put under that..."Wishing you a holiday season filled with all of the above..." or something like that. (Hope that made sense...!?)

Good luck! I'm trying to some up with some new ideas myself.
