Taking the time to create a gift is always more personal than buying one. Kids can also learn the meaning behind the holiday tradition by making gifts for their loved ones. Many of the gift ideas can be made by children in a classroom, pre-school, or with their family. Hand-making crafts can become a part of every Christmas in your family.

Craft ideas range from a simple hand-print decorated to look like Santa to the more complicated sewing ideas such as a pocket scarf. Food gifts can also be a part of your DIY fun. Let your child choose from drink mixes, cookies, or candies. Plain candles can also be decorated with felt, foam, or sewing pins.

Many DIY craft ideas will take under an hour from preparation time to the finished product. Half the fun is in gathering the ingredients, supplies, or materials required. A cup filled with cocoa mix takes five minutes, while a hand-painted ornament might take 20 minutes.

Your children will be excited to see someone open their homemade gifts. It also teaches your children to welcome any gift no matter how simple it is, when it is given with love. DIY Christmas gifts honour the spirit of Christmas and friendship.

And make sure to check out the rest of our Christmas gift ideas on our Christmas hub.
