  • Leaves
  • Metallic gold pen
  • Hole punch (optional)

What You Do:

  1. Take your child on a walk around a neighborhood where there are an abundance of leaves. Try a nearby park if it is convenient.

Re-purposed Holiday Cards

Holiday cards are ideal to re-use as gift tags as many contain great images or words that can be cut out and affixed to the tags.

What You Need:

  • Assortment of old holiday cards
  • Scissors
  • Card stock paper
  • Glue
  • Pen

What You Do:

  1. Have your child look through the holiday cards to find pictures or phrases that can be used on the gift tags.
  2. Help him cut the images and phrases out.
  3. Cut the card stock into gift-tag size. (Some may need to be larger than others, depending upon the size of the images.)
  4. Have your child glue the images and words onto the card stock.
  5. Use a pen or metallic marker to write the "to" and "from" information onto the tag.

Holiday Sticker Gift Tag

What You Need:

  • Assortment of old stickers or scraps of wrapping paper
  • Scissors
  • Card stock paper
  • Glue
  • Pen

What You Do:

  1. Have your child cut out holiday images from the wrapping paper or a different source if you are not using stickers.
  2. Cut the card stock into gift-tag size. (Some may need to be larger than others, depending upon the size of the images.)
  3. Have your child glue the images and words onto the card stock.
  4. Use a pen to write the "to" and "from" information onto the tag.
