Message Box for the Frontliners (COVID19) - open gift box drawingEveryday, I give my children things to do like solve math problems, draw things, or play puzzle games. Today I gave my eldest the task of giving a simple message to our dear front liners which later on will be posted on my Facebook wall. This is his simple artwork. I took pictures of it so I could also share it here.



  • paper
  • colored pens (any coloring material works)
Message Box for the Frontliners (COVID19) - supplies


  1. Fold the paper horizontally. So you should pull down the top edge and then fold it back up again to form something like this on the photo.
  2. Message Box for the Frontliners (COVID19) - folding a sheet of lined paper
  3. Draw a box through the folded area. The edge of the box cover should be fit on the folded edge. See photo.

  5. Draw a ribbon around it.

  8. Message Box for the Frontliners (COVID19) - draw on a message tag on the front of the box

  9. Pull up the fold and then continue to draw the top edge of the box. Then draw a bunch of any character you like. My son drew pandas wearing face masks. He put some hearts around the pandas and wrote "keep safe and God bless".
