How to make Herdy Christmas Jumper cards

1. Print off some Herdy ‘Yan’ characters and paint their bodies with coloured paint. You could also use coloured pens, pencils, or crayons if you prefer.

2. With scissors (maybe ask a grown up to help!) cut out the Herdy characters.

3. Take your coloured card and fold in half to form the card shape.

4. With a glue stick, glue the Herdy character to the front of your card.

5. With the glue bottle, use the nozzle to make the shapes you would like onto the body then cover with glitter as shown.

6. Take a spare piece of card and tap off the excess glitter. You can tip this excess back into the glitter pot.

7. Put some more dots of glue on the character to stick on some sequins or decorations.

8. With a small brush add some dots or shapes of colour.

9. As shown you can then use different colours of glitter or paint to customise your jumpers.

So get creative and make up your own Herdy Christmas jumper designs!
