Handmade Gifts for Kids


There are less than 11 weeks until Christmas! Can you believe it?!?! It seems like I was just putting away all of our Christmas stuff away a month or two ago…and now it’s almost here again! Although I love Christmastime, gift giving can sometimes stress me out (especially when it comes to making handmade gifts for kids). So like I’ve always resolved to do (but never really done), I’m starting early.

I REALLY LOVE to give handmade gifts. There is something about pouring yourself into a project that means so much more than picking up the latest gadget or gizmo at the store. But when I wait until the last minute, I don’t have the time or energy to pull off a handmade gift. So I’m left scouring Amazon for the latest and greatest “toy” to give the special little people in my life.

As I’m planning our gifts, I thought I would share with you a few ideas of handmade gifts we’ve given in the past. And there’s no excuse because you have a good 10 weeks to make these! :)

What is your favorite handmade gift to give to children???


  1. Jenae this is SO awesome! Thanks for gathering all of these ideas in one place! And I always love the pictures and instructions. So, you’re right, I have 10 weeks and no excuse! : )

  2. I hate throwing away things that I could used for projects. I finally got rid of the baby wipe containers (I only had 3), but I was so sure that I could use them. I couldn’t. Yesterday I threw them away, and today I see a cute idea that would be so darling for a gift to make and what does it require, baby wipe lids. Oy.
