This is a great idea for a Christmas gift. The plates are really reasonably priced at IKEA. All you need is brown, red and green paint. Use black, green and red Sharpies for the words and names.
The girls use the brown paint for the fingerprint reindeer. Use a paint brush or a pencil eraser to paint the dots around the circumference of the plate.
After everything is dry. The leaders should write the names of the scouts family members and Merry Christmas. Very simple to do and cute.
