Every year, we try to add a little homemade creativity to our gifts and holiday decorations. This year, we decided to make our own gift tags. I love this activity because it's fun and frugal. The kids had a great time painting on a new material and proudly added their creations to their gifts for their teachers and grandparents. Even the little ones were able to make some neat designs!

How We Did It

Foil Print Gift Tags

Gather all materials. We used white construction paper for the prints and mounted our gift tags on red and green paper to coordinate with our gift bags, but you could use any color. I also used paper plates to put the paint on. (This keeps the kids from arguing over paint or getting upset if someone mixes the paint.)

I gave each of my kids a sheet of aluminum foil about the size of a piece of paper and let them paint on it.

I encouraged my older kids to paint Christmas scenes for our gift tags. They made snowmen, Christmas trees, ornaments, and presents. The snowmen didn't turn out very well, but I think they may have shown up better on blue paper. We tried black, but weren't happy with the results.

My four-year-old made lots of designs on his. Even though it didn't look like anything, we were able to cut circles out of his page and turn it into adorable ornaments.

My five-year-old girl decided to paint a picture of herself.

Once the kids were finished painting, they laid a piece of paper on top and pressed down to make a print of their image.

The younger kids thought it was like magic when we peeled the paper off the foil.

Once the papers dried, we cut out the different pictures and mounted them on construction paper to make our gift tags. With a little ribbon, they made the perfect handmade addition to our family and teacher gifts!
