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.
