Great for new spellers!
What You’ll Need: Paper, craft foam, craft glue, 2-inch wooden block(s), stamp pad & notebooks
What To Do:
1. Write the recipient’s name in 1¼-inch-high block letters on a piece of paper (you can also use a stencil or print out the letters in a font you like at 100 points). Cut out each letter. You can get six characters onto a block, so if she has a short name, fill in any blank spaces with a fun design like a heart or a star; if she has a long name, use two blocks.
2. Trace two of each letter onto craft foam; cut out.
3. Stack the letters and glue them together. Then glue each letter to a side of the block backwards. Repeat for all letters.
4. If desired, package your blocks with a stamp pad and notebooks.

Wrap It Up: Use waxed cotton cord or twine to attach a card stock tag labeled "Painted Desert Terrarium."
Share good feelings and promote positive thinking with the help of a simple Smile Jar. Cut a piece of felt to fit the top of a canning jar and make a slit in the center as shown. Jot down a few happy thoughts, jokes, or silly notes on small slips of paper and place them in the jar. When someone's feeling down, she can pluck out a note for a quick pick-me-up.
