The holidays are a wonderful time for your kids to say "You're special to me" to the great teachers in their lives. Kids love to make things; they just need supplies and guidance from a patient adult. Here are some creative ideas for gifts that will bring treasured holiday memories simply because they came directly from little hands.

You can also create marbleized stationary by purchasing fine-quality resume paper and blank note cards. Pour droplets of tempura paint into a metal pan containing a mixture of water and a cup of laundry starch. Use a plastic fork to “comb” the color of the paint lightly across the water’s surface. Place a sheet of paper on top of the water’s surface for a few seconds, lift the paper up and place it on newspaper to dry. Then cut a panel of the marbleized paper and rubber cement it to one of the note cards. On the back of the card, you can copyright the child’s name and the year.
