Never heard of a REINDRAGON?  Well, neither had I until my webmaster, Alex May, created one.  I hope you'll enjoy the video he made to go along with a poem I wrote.

You'll be able to save money and create "one of a kind" greeting cards and wrapping paper with these ideas.

Wrapping Paper 
With tissue paper, paper plates, paint, and cookie cutters you’ll be all set to create your own wrapping paper.  First, fold a paper towel and place it on a paper plate.  Pour paint on the paper towel.  Let children dip the cookie cutters in the paint and print on the tissue paper.

*Recycle paper grocery sacks to use as wrapping paper.

*Let children paint with pine boughs on newspaper to create wrapping paper.

*Use fruits or vegetable prints to create one of a kind wrapping paper.

Gift Tags
You’ll need card stock, an ink pad, fine tip markers, and ribbon to make these gift cards.  Cut cardstock into 2” x 5” rectangles.  Fold in half.  Children press their thumb on the ink pad and then print on the front of the card.   Let them add details 
with markers.  Punch a hole and tie on a ribbon.

Greeting Cards 
Let children use fingerprints or handprints to make “one of a kind” holiday cards.  They can also make a colorful collage by gluing bits of wrapping paper to a blank card.
