Fun and Simple Christmas Gifts Kids Can Make

This is week 6 already of  Becky from FranticMommy and myself series called #HolidayMoney! We’ve talked about all sorts of ways to make and save money for the Holidays. I hope you have had time to check each post out and try some of the unique and creative tips!

Kid made Christmas

Kids loving making things and what better time to make gifts than Christmas. Finding fun and simple Christmas gifts can be as easy as a Google search or time spent on pinterest.
My children are of various ages and skill level when it comes to crafts, sewing, and creating their own presents. I imagine that even Lil’ Red will be “put to work” making Christmas cards or an ornament via some scribbles on paper or a thumbprint or two.

Ornaments- the most obvious choice

There are all sorts of ornaments that kids can make using common craft supplies like Popsicle sticks, plastic globes, air dry clay, or construction paper. I joined up with a large group of bloggers last year and a huge resource was created by MamaMiss and includes a link-up of a ton of really incredible ideas for kids to make.

 

A Home Made Calendar is a really cute idea for relatives near or far and is shown by Learning and Exploring Through Play.

Potholder Loom

An oldie but a goodie! I made potholder’s as a kid and so did my mom. We still have a metal frame but added a plastic loom to our collection of craft supplies. Both Eldest and Princess can create them on their own. I think Big Red could help with the initial steps of picking out similar loom pieces. Another really cute version of this is the homemade coaster that uses paper plates and basic weaving techniques found on Kid Actvities Blog!

 

Necklaces

From stringing store bought beads to making paper beads, necklaces are a quick and easy craft that most aged children can make for teachers, aunts, and grandmas.

 

Bookmarks

Who wouldn’t like a new bookmark for Christmas? Fabric, paper, or string and beads all make for a nice simple Christmas gift that a child could make their classmates.

ART as Gifts

How about some simple children’s art pieces as gifts? Check out these handprint art canvases from Messy Little Monsters.

Hama Beads AKA Perler Beads have made quite the come back in recent years. Red Ted Art shares how to make Hama Bead Bowls which could be a very handy gift for keys and small knick knacks.

Popsicle  (craft stick) pencil holders are a great gift for an office whether school, home, or work. A really nice example can be found on Naturally Educational.

Here are more Christmas Gift Suggestions:

50 Places to Shop For Christmas Gifts

Are you looking for some honest and reputable Etsy shops for your Christmas gifts? This year I am partnering with Satisfaction through Christ and a group of Christian bloggers who are promoting other small Christian businesses! This is super exciting just for the time-saving factor alone! I also like supporting small businesses that are honest and Christ-centered.

Christian_Etsy_Shops

Now a couple of word from Shirley our wonderful coordinator of this project:

Merry Christmas friends! I simply adore the holidays. Celebrating my King Jesus’ humble arrival in this world is all I think about at this time of the year. (Okay, I admit it, I’ve already been in Christmas mode since late September…)

And since September, I’ve been spending a lot of time thinking about the holiday season. I’ve never been a big fan of holiday shopping, but this year it dawned on me that holiday shopping is actually an opportunity. It’s an opportunity to serve, to bless and to encourage. This year, Satisfaction Through Christ, along with some great friends, is seizing that opportunity by calling one and all to shop with Christian-owned etsy shops and businesses!

Shop Christian Owned Etsy Shops and Small Business with this jam packed list of our favorites from Satisfaction Through Christ and Friends

Why? Because it’s an opportunity to buy gifts, decor, and treats for our friends and family, while blessing another Christian family somewhere out there. It’s a new way of giving into the Kingdom of God.

Since I started my own Christmas Etsy shop a few years ago, I’ve been passionate about “shopping small business.” But this year I felt God pressing “Christian-owned shops,” and, can I say, I think He’s onto something brilliant?

So, enjoy browsing our list of 50 Christian owned Etsy shops, and consider doing some or all of your holiday shopping with them or other God-honoring small businesses that your run across. And if you can’t make purchases this year, will you spread the word? Truly, it will be a gift in itself for these shop owners!

Oh, and hey, just so y’all know – none of these shops had to pay to be on this list. We went looking for them, and asked them if we could give them this little gift.

Imagine the gift you might bring to a fellow Christian by spreading the word about their Etsy shop? We're asking everyone we know to share this image via Facebook! (Or anywhere else you'd like to share.) Christians, will you consider shopping with Christian owned businesses first this year? What a holiday season we can have, together in Christ! Merry Christmas from Satisfaction Through Christ and Friends
