DIY Christmas Gifts with Your Kids
The holidays are here! Have you been diligently whittling away at your list of gifts to buy or are you waiting until the last minute?! This year, consider making your own! Homemade gifts are always a favorite and this is a wonderful way to spend some time with your little ones. Teaching your kids how to make their own special crafts can be a great start for any future entrepreneur! Here are a few ideas on things to make for your friends, family and loved ones this holiday season:
Shrinky Dink Key Chains or Charms
Handprints, artwork, monograms, notes… the sky is the limit. This project is simple and inexpensive, requiring only a few necessary materials and an oven. Whether you are making a one-of-a-kind piece of artwork or a memento to remember just how small they once were, these sentimental items will be cherished for years to come.
Photo Holders or Decorated Picture Frames
Pictures of you are grandma’s favorite! This year, make your loved ones a unique photo holder or frame to go with your favorite snapshots. From painted rocks, to carefully crafted creations with polymer clay, there are many great ways to create something special.
Bath Bombs, Soaps and Body Scrubs
What lady in your life wouldn’t like these?! Bath goodies are always a hit with teachers and other leading ladies in your life! Kids will love making fizzy bath bombs. It’s like a fun science project! And don’t forget about soaps and body scrubs, too. Let your imagination run wild! These products tend to use a few more materials to make, but the possibilities are endless with various colors, shapes, and fragrance options.
Decorative Coasters and Mugs
Your child’s art will make a lasting impression. With a few things that you probably have around the house already, like sharpies and rubbing alcohol, you can transform a simple white tile, or even a coffee mug, into something really special. Various techniques will produce dramatically different results!
