Make Back to School Business Cards!

3.6 based on 19 ratings

What You Need:

  • 3" x 5" index cards
  • Fine-tipped markers
  • Stickers, stamps, and stamp pads
  • Thick paper (optional)

What You Do:

  1. If you or a family member has a business card, show it to your child. Talk about how and why the cards are used. Then break out the craft supplies! Tell your child that she'll be creating her own set of “business cards” for school. She will use them to label all of her materials, including her backpack, folders, notebooks and binders. She can also hand them out to her friends and teachers, so they'll know how to contact her.
  2. Ask your child how many cards she'd like. Cut 3x5 index cards in half to make a set of cards.
  3. On each card, your child should write all of her pertinent information with a fine-tipped marker. Brainstorm what sort of things she'd like to put on her cards. Important information may include name, school, grade, teacher, bus number, phone number and email address. When she's finished with the writing, encourage her to personalize her business cards with stickers, stamps, or hand-drawn designs.
  4. Assist your child in labeling all of her school materials, by attaching one business card to each item. Put the extras in a small plastic bag inside her backpack to pass out at school.
