How to make thumbprint gift tags

Thumbprint Christmas kids diy gift tags are a perfect way to include small children in the gift wrapping process. These are simple, easy and fun!

The season for gift-giving is arriving, and we are so excited!  We love the process of finding and giving gifts to the people we love.  It’s so much fun thinking up gift ideas and hunting for the perfect presents that will make people smile.  Having the kids join in on part of it, as with these kids diy gift tags, just makes it better!

 Sure, sometimes it can be a stressful process.  What do you get for that family member who seems to have everything?  Or the sister who always asks for personal defense weapons, like knives? (True story; she’s going to be a cop.  Should we be worried?!)  There’s only so many options there before you need to come up with something truly creative.  But even though it can be a challenge, we enjoy it.

 And for us, the actual present is only part of the gift.  The packaging is almost as important.  Think about it;  isn’t it more fun to receive a fancy gift with a giant bow and sparkly paper than a gift wrapped in a plastic bag?  We think so.

Enter adorable kids diy gift tags.

 These fun gift tags are just one of the many gift tag variations we use each year to jazz up our gifts.  We’re showing them to you because they are so simple and fast.  We know you can make them, you will love them, and the people receiving the gifts will love them even more.

 These are particularly great for kids to help create.  Even the smallest kids can put their thumbprints on the tags and feel like they had a special part in the gift-giving process.  And teaching your children how fun giving presents can be is a really great lesson for them to be learning.  No lectures necessary!
