Handmade for the Holidays

My kids are still pretty little to be making handmade gifts for the holidays.  I do remember doing it for my parents though.  I wonder if my parents appreciated all my hard work or not.  I am just kidding.  I know they do since I appreciated all the hard work that Madison put into this handmade ornament she made at school for Christmas last year:

When we decorated the Christmas tree, we definitely put it up.  I made sure I saved it so we could put it on the tree this year.  I have a special gift the kids are working on for the grandma’s for Christmas this year.  All I can tell you is that it will require some art skills.  I don’t want to give away much more than that.

What handmade gifts have you received or have you given?

  1. Oh, I think that every child should make an ornament for the tree and get it out for all the years to come. We all have them in our family and I love them.

  2. Those turned out really well!! We did handpainted ceramic ornaments one year (trust me, they sound prettier than what they actually were with a team of boys) and last year made homemade candies to give away.

    This year? We might just do something simple – lol – it was a lot of work!
