The following is a list of gift suggestions
that can be made from your toddler's artwork so they can be a part of your handmade holiday as well!
*make a calendar from your home printer or have it professionally done
*other professional services (Qoop & Zazzle) to try: mug, mouse pad, calendar, greeting cards, notepads, tote bags, embroidered art, shoe art, postage stamps
*cut artwork into strips and then weave them: put in a frame; glue onto greeting cards for stationery; cut into squares and laminate for coasters; laminate and punch a hole for an ornament or present topper
*make line drawings into rubber stamps
at your local printer
Note: Of the professional services listed, I have only used Moo and was very pleased with the cards I received; the other companies are only suggestions and I have no experience with them but they are popular and well-known.
This chocolate cake recipe at Her Cup Overfloweth couldn't be simpler. It's made in a mug, cooks in the microwave and serves two. Kids will be so excited to make this all on their own - add a party pick and it's the perfect surprise dessert!
This popsicle stick coaster is such a super idea from No Time For Flashcards! It's a great craft project for all ages and has lots of room for their own creative expression:) Keep this in mind for kid-made holiday gifts!
The Little Travelers shares how they made these wool felted soaps: a bar of soap surrounded by felted wool! This is a great introduction to wool felting plus the soaps will add some excitement to bathtime for any reluctant bathers out there ;)
I don't know if there is anyone who hasn't heard of freezer paper stenciling but Panjo Kids has a really nice tutorial for you if you haven't tried it yet :) This is so easy (really!) but beware, once you try it you'll be hooked ;)
