  • Markers

  • Notepad cube

  • Ribbon


  1. Wrap a rubber band around a notepad cube and have kids write greetings and make drawings on two sides with a broad, pointy marker. (Fine tips will get caught between the pages.)

  2. Move band, and decorate the other two sides. Tie the notepad with a colorful ribbon. As an added gift, slide in a pen.
