A Homemade Holiday: Gifts That Kids Can Make

Handcrafted gifts are a unique, sentimental, and heartwarming approach to the holidays; and gift giving, in general. There’s no quicker way to fill a parent, grandparent or friend’s heart with warm fuzzies than a useful and beautiful gift created by the hands of their favorite tiny humans.

We will be curating a series on homemade this holiday season. We will open our series with gifts that children can make! Some of the projects may require adult supervision and prep.
