Homemade Christmas Gifts that Kids Can Make!

Over the years, I've gotten a lot of Christmas presents and none were so awesome as the ones that were obviously made by hand. Some of my favorites include a crocheted scarf, a knitted hat, and a really neat "picture" made up of individual photos of naturally occuring letters to spell out our family's last name.

Because these gifts are so special to ME, I've been making more and more of our Christmas gifts as well! This year so far, I've made my daughter a sweater (you can see a pic of her modeling it here but I haven't officially given it to her yet, haha) and am in the process of making the youngest boy a sweater as well. For my older boys, I plan to make Perry the Platypus hats. Lol. But making gifts doesn't stop at my immediate family for me; I've made scarves for many of the ladies in our family as well. We've made ornaments. All sorts of things.

Today, I'd like to share a list of items that your kids could easily help you with to make Christmas a little more special. I think a homemade gift says, "I was thinking about you and I wanted to make a little extra effort on your gift this year."

Here's the link to the homemade gift ideas: http://familyfun.go.com/christmas/homemade-christmas-gifts/christmas-gifts-kids-can-make/

My favorites from the list? I'd definitely say the Candle Jars and the Cookie Cutter Candles are among my favorites! Candles are a fun present and a fun project too! :)

Anyone else planning on a homemade Christmas this year? What kinds of items will you be giving and making?
