Friendship Gift Package Exchange

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here to help you get ready for a Friendship Gift Package Exchange.  With summer here, what better time to gather the kids and have them make up friendship gift packages.

Gather all your supplies and let the kids have fun creating gifts for their friends.  Then have them decorate gift bags so they can place their gifts inside.  All you need to do next is to arrange for a Friendship Gift Package Exchange so they can exchange their gifts.  Think how much fun they’ll have opening packages made by their friends.
