If your kids run out of gift ideas, have them cut out some paper promises that the people they love can really use.

What You'll Need:

  • Old magazines
  • Scissors
  • Paper
  • Glue

How to Make Paper Promises:

Step 1: Do your kids have a hard time thinking of what to give their parents for their birthday? What about Grandma for Christmas? What about trying a promise on paper?
