this holiday season.
You need a business-size envelope
crayons, markers, stickers or stamps.
index cards, hole punch, ribbon
First, mark off 2 3/8 inch from each corner of the flap
The pointed flaps are even better,
but I had this kind, and they work, too.
Let your child decorate the envelope using
whatever you prefer, markers,
crayons, stickers, anything will do!
Fold the edges of the envelope to the middle.
Decorate those flaps, too!
Punch a half-hole on each side,
about half-way down the length of
Thread a long piece of ribbon through the holes,
inside your flaps.
Cut the index cards in half.
Let your child decorate a message:
Baby Jesus is going to be born,
A heart for I love you,
Or whatever they want to share with
someone as a special message.
Slide the "message" inside the envelope
and fold and tie.
Now your child can deliver special
messages to those he loves
just like the angel brought
Mary a special message too!
