Encourage your child to draw something now, that you can include on a future card. Once scanned or photographed, it can be used later for a birthday. A 16th, 18th, or 21st would be ideal. Perhaps even for a graduation or first day at work. Maybe you have lots of suitable 'works of art' already pinned to the fridge.
Give your child/ren some prompts. Ask them to draw:
- what they will be when they grow up
- favourite food/s
- their name (to include on the outside/back of the card)
- any advice for their future self (best for an older child).
For a more polished look, give the task to someone else. Two places I have used; Harvey Norman Photo Center and Moonpig. Alternatively DIY and print the card yourself using some thick paper.

I have used Harvey Norman online for cards, a large canvas and prints. The quality was great. Picking the item/s up in store saved me a few dollars. The turn around of ten days was often a worst case scenario and they were ready much sooner.
Hope you enjoy this fun idea. I shared this because I was inspired to do so. Although if Harvey Norman want to send me a cheque, I can start a 'Jeanie needs more fabulous shoes fund' for donations LOL.
