One of my favorite gifts to help the kids make for friends or family is bookmarks. Bookmarks are something people can use, don't clutter up your house and can remind the recipient of your child each time they read. A great gift for grandparents who don't need any more "things."
Start by cutting out the desired size of bookmarks.
Have your child color a picture on the bookmark.
Laminate the bookmarks. I got mine done at Kinko's. Then cut out with an x-acto knife.
And there you have it!
I made these ones for my sister McKenzie who loves to read and included a picture of the boys on the back.
