5 Easy Christmas Gift Ideas Kids Can Make

As you may have already noticed, Christmas is just around the corner! Beat the Christmas crowds and gift something more personal to loved ones this year. Whether it be for Grandma or Pop, Mum, Dad or a sibling, these homemade craft-inspired gift suggestions are sure to please (and save you some money too!)


1. Christmas Tree Slime

Any slime loving children in your home? If yes, then this is the perfect gift to make for them, with a Christmas twist! Homemade slime is all the rage right now, and this slime recipe from The Best Ideas for Kids website would make the perfect present for a brother or sister. Just add to a cute little jar or container and voila, hours of slime fun!


2. Gingerbread Men and Houses

Love to cook? Then this would be a perfect project to do with your children leading up to Christmas. Most kids love helping out in the kitchen, making Gingerbread Men baking a fun activity to do together. If you're not too keen on having the kids in the kitchen just yet, have them help out simply by decorating the cookies (doesn't have to be perfect! That's the fun of it!). Wrap the finished cookies in some cellophane tied with ribbons and they are ready to go! Even if you don't want to cook, you can cheat by buying a Gingerbread House kit and helping the kids put it together and decorate it. Still personal, just using a shortcut ;)


3. Reindeer Nose Mason Jars

For a super easy gift idea, with no baking and minimal craft work, try these Reindeer Nose Mason Jars. All you need is a mason jar, some Christmas ribbon, chenille sticks for antlers, brown cardboard, a red pom pom and craft eyes, all put together with a bit of a glue. Fill with some Maltesers and a red bubble gum ball and you're done! Not only do they look cute but who doesn't like chocolate?


4. Framed Handprint Art

For a handmade gift that will last the years and have sentimental value, a Christmas tree artwork made up of your children's handprints is definitely a winner. Either painted on a good quality canvas, or on paper and framed, this is a gift that will be used as decoration for many Christmas' to come.


We hope we have inspired you to get crafty and give a gift that is created with love this Christmas.
