QUARTER ROLL CARD with free printable

05.06.09

quarter-roll-birthday-card-giftLately we’ve been looking for simple birthday surprises that my 6-year-old can help me make. Our latest was a twist on the old birthday standby, the roll of quarters. This was for a 6th birthday so we used one of my absolute favorite poems by A.A. Milne from his anthology Now We Are Six. (Which is, in itself, a fantastic birthday gift).

If you’d like to use the same template, I’ll post the file for download

Now We Are Six Card (798)

so wrapping each stack of quarters was a good outlet

for a grand birthday gift total of $5.25

I love this poem. My mother gave me this book for my sixth birthday and it’s on my shelf right now. I love the gift idea – it’s so simple and unique and NOT over-the-top. Very like Pooh. Thanks for posting!

This is a very cute idea. Hope I can remember this when my grandson turns 6. Wish they had something like this for 9 and also for 16.
