DIY Heart Scribble Mug 
This is the perfect handmade gift idea for toddlers and preschoolers! They 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. 

Footprint Butterfly Clay Bowl
I love this so much and I'm sure any mum or grandma would too! This beautiful butterfly clay bowl is made using your baby or toddlers tiny footprints and it looks ADORABLE as well as being the perfect place to keep your rings. 

Handprint Bowl
If you love the footprint keepsake bowls you will love these handprint bowls made from salt dough. This handmade gift can be made from just a few supplies that your probably already have at home!

Homemade Sugar Scrub 
Sugar scrubs are suprisingly easy to make and if you put them in a glass jar they can look beautiful. 

Child's Drawing Keyrings 
Do you remember shrinky dinks? Make keyrings using your child's drawings to make a really personal handmade 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 handmade 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. Drawing a portrait of the person you are sending the gift to can be a nice touch. 

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. 

Stained Glass Heart Cookies
Tell someone how much you love them by baking them some heart shaped cookies! This is the perfect homemade gift for food lovers. 

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