DIY Christmas Gifts Made by Kids for Anyone

19) What about these adorable Pressed Flowers and Leaves Bookmarks from Buggy and Buddy? I love the string woven on the edges of these. And it’s a simple craft that even the youngest kids can do. Or this fun bookmark craft from Little Log Cottage School uses photos as the bookmark itself! Super fun.

20) Or how about a DIY Coffee Mug? The Realistic Mama has links here to 10 DIY Mug designs. She also has some good tips on how to prepare and seal your mug once it’s gone through its artful transformation.

21) And if you’re making custom coffee mugs, why not have your kids create some uniquely-blended tea bags? Nellie Bellie shares an insanely genius idea here of using coffee filters to create your own tea bags. Wouldn’t these be cute if the kids created little designs on the tags?!

22) These oven-bake clay necklaces from P is for Preschooler are cute too! And it looks like you could make quite a few necklace charms at a time (which is helpful when you have several children who need to make gifts). Play to Learn Preschool has another idea here that uses Crayola Model Magic and dimes.

23) Edible gifts are an easy favorite. What about helping your child whip up some cookies or other tasty treats like Apple Green Cottage shares about here? You can also check out this Christmas baking post from the site (it shares 10 Ways that Christmas cookie baking can be a teaching opportunity)!


24) What about a fun Tin Can Lantern? These would be adorable displayed on a porch or a windowsill. And there’s super easy to make. Kids Craft Room shares her tutorial here.


25) Mmmm… is there anything better than a cuddly warm blanket? Your kids can make one (without sewing) with this Easy No-Sew Blanket Tutorial from Mama Smiles. The best part about these blankets is that they can be made any size. Along with blankets made to be twin-bed-size, think couch-throw-size, crib-size, doll-size… you name it.

26) OK, confession time: I want someone to make one of these rugs for me. Any volunteers? Pretty please? Alright, maybe I’ll have to hint around with my kids on this. But seriously, you’ve got to check out this ah-dorable rag rug from Craftaholics Anonymous. What fun this could be!
