I love doing crafts with my little one and the holiday season is the perfect time for making special crafts to be given as gifts! I believe that it’s important to give my little one the opportunity to give presents she has helped create. During the holidays we make a homemade gift to give to our family members. Here are a few gifts we’ve made.
Make a Treat:
Holiday cookies, fudge, or even peppermint bark. Let your little one choose which treat to make and have him or her help cerate these yummy treats.
Homemade Soap: You can find lots of recipes for making homemade soap online. This one from
is a favorite of mine. Use a small reindeer or a little Christmas tree to put in each soap! Baby Center
Cloth Napkins: Use white linen napkins for your kiddo to stamp a cute winter shape or holiday symbol with fabric paint!
Cookie or Brownie Mix in a Jar: Kids can help measure out dry ingredients and pour them into the jar. Then tie a cute ribbon around the jar and a piece of paper with the rest of the ingredients and cooking directions. I like to let my little one decorate the tag. Allrecipes has some great recipe ideas for “Cookie Mix in a Jar”!
