Activity Description

SERVE at Home is a way for your family to spread kindness and help our community on your own, anytime, anywhere! We want to keep Houston volunteering all week long!

Let’s get crafty and make handmade cards for ERJCC Meals on Wheels clients to send to them on their birthday to let them know someone is thinking about them on their special day!

Activity Requirements

  • This activity is great for all ages. 
  • Our program is designed to be a family experience. We want parents and caregivers to work alongside their child(ren) for all our Family Volunteering activities.

You will need to provide the supplies for this activity. You can complete this activity on your own anytime during the month.

Activity Directions

Supplies needed:

  • Construction paper or blank cards
  • Markers or crayons
  • Stickers, stamps, or other art supplies you may have at home
  • A mailing envelope and postage

To start, make fun and colorful designs on the front of your cards. You can include drawings, stickers, stamps and more. Please avoid glitter as it can rub off.

On the inside of your cards, include a drawing and a birthday message such as:

Wishing you a happy birthday and a wonderful year!

Hope your day is filled with happiness!

I wish for all of your wishes to come true. Happy birthday!

Any other fun, positive, and/or uplifting birthday message! You can also write a joke or riddle. The ERJCC will match your card with one of their clients. Please sign the cards with your first name, age, and where you are from.

If you would like, you can also include free printable crossword or sudoku puzzles in your cards.

Please try to make 3-5 cards and mail or hand deliver them directly to:
