DIY Christmas Gifts and Handicrafts for Kids!

This holiday season, I decided to dedicate the entire week before Christmas to giving. We are going to make Christmas gifts and treats to give to our family, friends, and neighbors. It will some good time to catch up on all our handicrafting! So, for all of you in a giving spirit, I have put together a list of DIY Christmas gifts and handicrafts. Enjoy!

Today we spent most of our day making homemade gifts to give out. It was a great experience! We hand-painted signs on wood pallet boards, we each made a wool octopus and did some finger knitting. Our favorite project was Finger Knitting Snakes. << Click the link for the tutorial!

Finger Knitting Supplies:

This was our first-time finger knitting, our finished products were not perfect, but they were still super cute! The kids gave their snakes away as gifts to their cousins. They were a huge hit!
