I'm always looking for ways to involve my kids in the gift-giving process. So, when it came time for us to deliver Christmas gifts to our neighbours, I had the boys make these Christmas tree gift bags.
I love how they turned out, don't you? Want to make your own?
You'll need: plain brown gift bags from the Dollar Store, strips of construction paper in various colors, scissors, glue, and yellow buttons. Then:
1) Cut strips of construction paper into various lengths... from larger to smaller... and arrange them on the bag. Secure them with white glue.
2) Cut a short strip of brown paper for the tree trunk, and secure with glue.
3) Glue a yellow button onto the top of the tree.
4) Allow glue to dry completely.
That's it! You are ready to fill the bag with lots of Christmas goodies. My boys had a great time delivering their homemade gift bags to our neighbours.
How do you get your children involved in the gift-giving process?
