Get well soon card supply list
- 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ blank matte white note cards (8315)
- Black permanent marker for drawing
- Color markers, crayons or colored pencils
- Adhesive bandage
- Sticky googly eyes
- Optional: regular googly eyes + glue
Step 1: Start your get well card with a bandage
Layout a blank notecard vertically so that your get well soon card will open like a book. Stick an adhesive bandage right in the middle of your notecard.
Step 2: Add googly eyes to bring it life
Stick on 2 adhesive googly eyes near the top of the bandage to show where the “face” will be. Or you can use glue stick or school glue to stick on regular googly eyes.
Step 3: Add personality to your get well card
Use a permanent marker to draw on a smile just below the googly eyes. Give your bandage person hair or accessories to add personality.
Pro Tip: Make sure you use permanent marker when drawing on adhesive bandages because regular markers won’t work as well.
Step 4: Add arms and legs
Use a marker, crayon or colored pencil to draw arms and legs for your bandage person. Simple stick arms and legs will do, but feel free to get creative!
Step 5: Decorate your get well soon card
Use markers, colored pencils or crayons to decorate your get will soon card with whatever you like best. You can create a background for your bandage person or just draw fun things like hearts, stars and other fun shapes.
Don’t forget to write a get well soon message inside!
