This year, I decided to spend a little more time doing homemade Christmas gifts for my children. I feel like it makes things more meaningful, plus it saves a lot of money. I have seen so many cute ideas online of things that I am considering making. I don’t have time to do it all!!! Here are some of the fun things I am working on:
Homemade Barbie clothes. I started doing these today & they are really simple to make. I found this amazing website with so many great ideas & tutorials of how to make barbie clothes.
Homemade lip gloss– Super simple with vaseline and kool-aid. Can’t wait to try this out!
Bath Fizzies– I think both of my kids would have fun with this…
A Fort Kit– my son really loves making forts. I think this will be perfect for him. It includes clothes pins, clamps, rope, 2 flat sheets, a flash light, some suction cups, and a carrying bag. How fun is this?
Treasure Soap: Make soap in little molds and drop toys into it. They eventually get the toys out if they wash their hands really well! I am thinking of getting one of those little bags of mini animals at the dollar store to put into the soap. I can also do this for my daughter with little rings or bracelets or something.
Homemade Hopscotch & Tic-Tac Toe mats. I love this idea with a double sided mat.
A taggie blankie– I have been wanting to make one of these for a long time. So sweet!
A hollow book for my son to hide treasures in.
A few other tings I am thinking about:
Photo albums- we never print our pictures, so I am going to make a photo album for each of my kids.
Fleece blankets, scarves & hats
A little sewing kit for my daughter
Hope this helps some of you!
I am still deciding & would love any fabulous ideas that you may have. What are you making for your kids this year??
