Christmas Gift Tags made By Kids:
To start out, bend your paper tube into a triangle shape. Dip it into a plate of green poster paint. Stamp this onto the paper in rows.
Next, use the cotton swabs to stamp red paint onto the Christmas trees. You can dab ornaments onto the trees or paint garland with the red paint. …or color the whole tree red, like Little Guy did. It’s creative expression, here!
We used the brown paint to paint little trunks on each tree. This part of the craft is a great way to sneak in some fine motor skills. Work on pre-handwriting skills with the cotton swab by encouraging a tripod grasp, neutral or extended wrist, and pinkie and ring fingers tucked up into the palm for support. This is a fun way to encourage an appropriate grasp on writing utensils.
We used a variety of ribbon types to package up our gifts. The Gift tags made the presents!
