Homemade gifts mean a lot because the special person knows the time and energy involved in making the gift. Seasoned Moms are sharing precious homemade gift ideas and a cute coaster homemade gift kit on Kids Activities Blog. Let the holidays begin with memorable gifts that come from the heart.
Young children get the same thrill with a simple Mom made gift than from an elaborate expensive toy from the store. One year olds can be easily surprised and entertained with these ideas. Use strips of flannel to create a one of a kind blanket. Transforming an old sweater to make cute leggins for the baby may be just what he or she needs to do the first steps.
Cute taggie blankets are a lot of fun for the kids to touch, feel, and explore. Use a variety of textures and follow the simple tutorial to make one this season. Discovery bottles, texture cards, snuggly monsters, treasure baskets, book ideas, and DIY puppets are only a few of the great ideas for the perfect gift this season.
If the child loves to be creative and wants to be actively involved in making a gift, a coaster kit will be a great gift. Supplies needed to make the cute coaster are a paper plate, some yarn, and a scissor. Cut one inch slits into the paper plate.
Wrap the largest yarn around the plate to create the spokes of a wheel. When the pattern is finished knot the wheel loom to itself. Taping it down will add extra security.
Alternate the scraps of yarn and weave around the paper plate wheel. Tell the kids not to pull too tightly. Once a nice coaster shaped circle has been created, gently pull out the paper plate and knot the ends together. The kids will be proud of the adorable coaster gift to family and friends.
