What you will need:
Christmas decorated tissue
This is a fun and special ornament that your child can make with your help and it is very simple. First, take a piece of Christmas decorated tissue paper and fill it with plain tissue paper or even toilet paper the size of an orange. Next, you will want to find a free clip art that you can import into word and type the following saying.
This is a very special gift that you can never see.
The reason it’s so special is it’s just for you from me.
Whenever you are lonely or feeling blue,
You only have to hold this gift and know I think of you.
Please leave the ribbon tied and hang it on your tree,
Know in your heart it’s filled with love inside from me.
Next, print out this saying with your special clip art and place a hole punch on the top of the paper and tie it around the top of the tissue paper in a knot leaving extra ribbon to make a hanger to hang on the tree.
