Top 5 Handmade Gifts to Make with Kids!

We all love to create in one way or another and we know kids really love getting their hands dirty whether it be in paint, markers or dough. Even the odd pot of Sudocream and chocolate spread has been known to be thrown in to the ‘artistic’ mix (Yes, yes you have to watch the video!).

Considering you don’t want to be cleaning that kind of mess up this Christmas, why not have a bit of fun with the kids and make some cute and quirky Christmas gifts for your friends and family!

Below is a list of my top 5 favourites. Click the heading of each one to find out more on each project and how to DIY!!

Fabric Pillows

Easy to create and so adorable! There are few cuter things than a child’s hand written words and what better way to preserve the memory!

Wind Chimes

Practically anything can be used to make a gorgeous display of wind chimes. Stick collected on a nature walk, old keys you no longer use, painted plastic bottle and even nuts a bolts from the garage!
