Caterpillar Cards

Christmas cards for schools - easy fundraising projects

How is works

Step One

Register your school's or nursery's participation in Caterpillar Cards Christmas Card Project. Full instructions and templates will be sent to the co-ordinator.

Step Two

The co-ordinator gives the templates and instructions to each class teacher. Each pupil completes an A5 sized design for a Christmas card. This can be done as part of a School or Nursery project or as a homework activity. The teacher fills in the class & child's name in the space provided and returns the templates to the co-ordinator, who returns them to Caterpillar Cards in the envelope provided.

Step Three

Caterpillar Cards produce a sample of each child's design with the child's details on the reverse. (Child's name, class and school details). The sample cards are returned to the school with the order forms.

Step Four

The parents are invited to purchase packs of 12 cards with matching envelopes. Cheques are made payable to the School or Nursery; for each pack of cards sold the School or Nursery retains a donation of £1.00.

Step Five

You email or post all the orders back to us, we process them returning the cards back to the School or Nursery by courier. All cards will be printed and returned within two weeks of receiving the order.

We aim to keep administration to a minimum.

During the summer, we send out a comprehensive administration pack - providing:


lesson plan ideas


order forms

suggested letters for teachers and parents

A4 posters to advertise the project

sample cards

return courier envelopes

downloadable letters to parents on our 'Support Documents' page and further artwork ideas in our gallery.
