8 1/2-by-11-in. white paper
Ribbon or string
Cut a 9 1/2-by-6-inch rectangle from the cereal box and place it picture-side up. Fold it in half. Stack white paper, fold the sheets into quarters, cut along the top, and set the paper inside the cardboard. Punch three holes through the paper and cardboard and thread ribbon to bind. Now, brainstorm topics for both giver and recipient. If it says on the left page "My Favorite Animals," then print on the facing page, "Your Favorite Animals." Your child can draw or write in his answers, leaving the other side blank for the recipient. Other topics: favorite colors, special places, five things you love about the other person. The child can fill out the remainder with the recipient.
