DIY Christmas Gifts by Kids for Kids

1) Here’s a cute gift for that American Girl Doll lover: a homemade doll sleep mask. And dare I say it’s one American Girl accessory that won’t cost a pretty penny?


2) These Velcro Dot Craft Sticks are incredibly easy to make, but would be a great gift for a toddler or preschooler. These are do-it-yourself building materials to keep little hands busy!

3) And oh… how adorable these DIY Baby Fabric Bows from Craftaholics Anonymous are! Admittedly the gift receiver (a infant) would probably not recognize the sheer cuteness of these, but they are an easy gift to make nonetheless for an excited big sister or cousin.


4) Speaking of popsicle sticks… how about creating a kids’ treasure box? Your child could paint it (as shown here in this post from Powerful Mothering) or add stickers or silk flowers for additional personalization.

5) Do you have a budding artist in your home? How about this super cute Kids Travel Art Kit  from A Whimsicle Life made out of a CD case?! True, this gift would take the work of an older child to create, but what a fun gift for a younger sibling that loves art!

6) My oldest son made one of these A-Frame Pup Tents last year for our toddler and it was a hit! Check out this simple and fun gift idea from Lindsay & Drew here.

7) Do your kids like “slime”? Let me rephrase that… do they like to play with icky, oozy, stretchy stuff? Learning Through Playing not only shares her recipe for “slime” here, but a really fun way to give it as a gift (yes, evidently it’s possible to “gift” slime). Check out her Slime Ornaments here! What little boy wouldn’t want this?!

8) Alright, this would probably take some adult supervision, but come on… what little girl wouldn’t love her big brother forever after receiving this gift: a custom made dollhouse. Sutton Grace has a tutorial here (including plans) for a wood dollhouse… but I’m wondering (just to make things a little simpler) if a slightly-less-sturdy version could be made out of cardboard?

9) Lastly, you’ve gotta love these homemade bows and arrows out of PVC Pipe from Skip to My Lou. My kids would have a field day shooting each other with these all over our yard!
