7 DIY Gifts Kids Can Make

Sharing is caring!

Kids I feel like have it the easiest when it comes to gift giving. They can literally hand-make almost anything and everyone will immediately fall in love with it.

I remember when I was younger, those pin needle candles were a top thing to make. I’m sure you know exactly what I’m talking about. And I made those for everyone on my list one year.

Of course they were hideously made, but everyone loved them! And I remember having so much fun making them.

These gifts are sure to be crowd pleasers and I’m sure they will come out better than my pin needle candles!

This post is part of a series of DIY Christmas gifts for everyone on your list. And be sure to check out the rest of this weeks posts to see all of the DIY Christmas Gifts.
