12 Gifts Kids Can Make for all Occassions

Oh we do love this time of year… as the days get darker and Autumn draws on in, we hit the BIRTHDAY season in our family.. with Christmas following in the not so distant future. If you, like us, love for the kids to make gifts, be thoughtful about what they are giving and put some effort into their gifts.. steering them AWAY from the commercialism all around us – it isn’t about the VALUE of a gift, but the THOUGHT that went into it, then you will hopefully love these 12 Gifts Kids Can Make. Of course ANYTHING a child makes, will be loved and appreciated.. so to be honest, when it comes to gifts kids can make “anything goes”. However, here are some examples of practical or fun gifts, that have a specific purpose – be it wonderful beauty products such as bath bombs for kids to make or body scrubs or accessories such as necklaces and key chains, hopefully you will find something to make for everyone in the family.

Here is a great post btw, specifically thinking about the MEN in our lives – with 40 Gift Ideas for Him and a further fun and quirky 17 Father’s Gift Ideas here.
