Getting Your Kiddos Involved in the Holidays: Gift Tags

Posted on
Categories Activities, DIY, Parenting, PreschoolersTags

Since my girls were two, I’ve gotten them as involved in the holiday festivities as possible.  One activity we have really come to enjoy is making gift tags.

Hard at work in their pj’s!

This year’s masterpieces feature fingerprint reindeer.  At soon-to-be five years old, the girls were able to do these all by themselves…the brown fingerprint was first; then the tip of a finger in the red ink…and then they used markers for the eyes and antlers.

I am so tickled with how they turned out…I can hardly wait to see them adorning our homemade goodies that we gift to our family and friends!

Our little deer!

Some of our family members like to save these tags and hang them on their tree as ornaments.  We’re developing quite the collection!

How do you get your kiddos involved in the holidays?

  1. Adorable! I love it! We did wrapping paper this year, which involved me opening up brown paper grocery bags and putting them out on the table and giving the boys red, green and white paint and them painting ‘wreaths’ all over the paper. They look like homemade wrapping paper by two 5 year olds :)

    1. I love it, Janna! We have been decorating brown paper for birthday presents for a while, and the girls will probably decorate brown gift bags in some form or fashion this holiday. I love getting the kiddos’ hands in the mix!
