Today's tip is all about getting children involved in gift giving by having them make their own cards.
I always have a bunch of blank cards and envelopes around, so when there is an occasion to do so, I have the kids make their own birthday and thank you cards.
It is a simple exercise, but I think it is important for children to learn about giving and gratitude, and this is a simple way for them to do it. Just give them a blank card, some stickers, and some crayons, and watch them create meaningful cards for teachers, family, and friends.
Don't you think a handmade card is more special than one that comes from a store?
