It’s almost the Holidays. Our families are expecting us to come home and be with them during this very special season. It’s wonderful to give them assuring greetings to promise that you will remain in their hearts despite the possible distance.

We prepared an easy way to make a Presentation Animation just to do that kind of greeting.  Hope you'll like it..

Step 1: Open the powerpoint software. On the upper right you can see the word DESIGN. Click it and you can see different themes. Choose a theme by clicking on one of the choices.

Step 2: Insert a RACE CAR clip art
After choosing your theme, you can now insert a clip art. You can do this by clicking on the word INSERT and then clicking the icon CLIP ART located lower to the word INSERT. A slide will appear which makes you choose which Clip Art you want. 

Step 3: Animating the Clip Art
To add animation to your Clip art, click the word ANIMATIONS on the upper pane and click CUSTOM ANIMATIONS. You can now see the animations panel on the right side. Click ADD EFFECTS to add an animation. Click Entrance + Motion Paths. Choose the LINE path and draw a line to the left.

Step 4: The Greetings
Write the words “I promise.. I will drive a race car..” and then put an animation to this line. The THREAD entrance animation would be great for this but it is up to you if you want another animation.

Do this with the other words like “Just so I can make it in time.. to be with you this Christmas”.

Step 5: Merry Christmas Greeting
For the Final Greeting, Use the DESCEND Animation for your Merry Christmas Greeting. Always make sure the font size coincides with Design of the Slide.

Step 6: Adding Quirkiness
It’s always nice to add a quirky feeling to the greeting to make in a little playful. To do this, write down the words “make that for the New Year, too..” and “Happy New Year!!” and use the BOMERANG or FLOAT entrance animation. 
It will surely make your greeting fun and lively!

Step 7: Save and Send
Save your work by clicking SAVE AS + OTHER FORMATS. Use the Powerpoint Show with an extension (.ppsx).

Send the Powerpoint Show file via email or Uploading it to your favorite social network group and it will play as soon as it’s clicked or open.
Below you can see other Christmas Greetings articles that would also be usefull.
Merry Christmas Greetings for Love ones

There are numerous campaigns on Saving Earth. It’s nice to keep reminding ourselves that we should do this. This is the reason why I made a simple presentation you can INSERT on the last slides of your presentation just to remind people on minute gestures we can do to save the earth.
