Send grandma and grandpa another cute gift from the kids by making a simple Fingerprint Wreath or Scrap Paper Christmas Tree!

When Leah was in Kindergarten (10 years ago!) she came home one day in December with a red-painted nose and a reindeer headband on. She simply said it was for a card she made with her class, but that’s all she told me. A couple of weeks later, she handed me and my husband a darling card with a picture of her dressed as a reindeer with the words “I love you Deerly” printed underneath.

Hard to believe that little face is now 15!!

Even after all these years, this is one of my very favorite cards – and it’s such a fun Christmas craft too!
