Kids Can Make It! (Great gifts that kids can make!)

on December 21 | in Sewing With Kids | by | with 8 Comments

Most children are blessed with the ability to enjoy the magic of the holiday season without experiencing much of the stress. About this time of the month, however, my daughter starts to panic and realize that she doesn’t have anything to give her grandma! Or her sister! Or me! We’ll be crafting together for the rest of the week (and then when she is in bed, I’ll finish all my sewing. *yawn*)

If your kids still need to make gifts, try some of these fun projects. We culled them from our Handmade Holidays series. (There are, of course, lots of other ideas for gifts that kids can make to be found throughout the month–these are just a few!) With a little help from you, your children will be able to enjoy the pleasure of giving handmade this season.

    These are cute! I just had my kids sewing and stuffing felt stocking ornaments, but that was kind of an ordeal. Some of these look like they’d be a little lower maintenance for us! :)

    The glasses case is very nifty! I have written a tutorial on my blog for a glasses case for kids to make too. It uses felt and provides the grown up with step by step instructions on how to help their child make this lovely gift. http://www.sewtogether.com.au/1/post/2010/12/sew-together-with-children-part-2.html
