Homemade Gifts Kids Can Make




Homemade Bird Feeder

Follow the simple instructions to make a DIY bird feeder.  These look great as gifts, especially if you add ribbon and a homemade gift tag to them. 


Make Your Own Crayon Shapes 
These DIY crayons are perfect for children to make as gifts for others and to receive themselves.  Its a good way to recycle old broken crayons too! 


DIY Heart Scribble Mug 
Toddlers and preschoolers can make really effective looking mugs with this simple technique.  We love the heart design, but you could do any shape your toddler or preschooler chooses! 


Personalised Snowman Mug 
Another DIY mug, this time for older children.  Copy the simple snowman design and add a name to personalise it. 


Pour Painting Flower Pots
These colourful flower pots are so much fun to make.  They look really effective once they are dry and children can choose their own plant to go inside them. Or alternatively make a fingerprint flower pot


Clay Heart Footprint Bowl
These heart shaped clay bowls are really easy to make using air dry clay and they look amazing. Personally I love the addition of little footprints inside these bowls, but they would look equally as amazing without. 


Handprint Bowl
If you love the footprint keepsake bowls you will love these handprint bowls made from salt dough. 



Child's Drawing Keyrings 
Do you remember shrinky dinks? Make keyrings using your child's drawings to make a really personal gift for family, friends or a teacher. 


Polymer Clay Heart Keyring
Using a child's fingerprint create a beautiful keyring using polymer clay. This is a perfect gift to make with younger children who are too small to make a gift themselves. You could also use salt dough and turn them into fingerprint heart magnets


Mini Canvas Keepsake
These tiny canvases on easels are adorable for any artwork.  Add fingerprints and a poem as we did or use them to draw a special picture. 


Toddler Scribble Art
Toddlers and preschoolers could also make really simple art on a larger canvas.  I love the pens used on these canvases. Water pistol painting is also a really fun and effective way of making a canvas. 


Make Your Own Frame 
Decorating a frame and then adding a favourite photograph inside it is a lovely gift for a family member. 


Homemade Superhero Coasters
This set of coasters are perfect for a real life 'superhero' in your child's life.
