Step 1: Gather Holiday Cards & Packaging
Have your children collect all of the holiday cards that are displayed on your mantle and the gift packaging that’s stacked in the garage or left lingering under the Christmas tree.
Step 2: Gather Your Supplies
To create the gift tags you’ll also need: A hole punch, scissors, a paper cutter, and twine.
Step 3: Find the Best Parts
Have your children help you remove the colorful, decorative fronts of the holiday cards from the backs and cut off the parts of the gift packaging that you want to use.
Step 4: Create Tags
Using your paper cutter, scissors, and a hole punch, your children can help you transform the front of the holiday cards and decorative parts of the gift packing into tag shapes.
Step 5: Add Finishing Touches
You and your child can write “To:” and “From:” on each tag, along with a holiday greeting. Then thread twine through the punched holes of each tag. Then, admire your work and pack them away in a safe spot until next year.
