10 Christmas Gifts Kids Can Make for Parents, Grandparents, and Teachers
Kids want to be holiday gift-givers, too (though, they probably love being on the receiving end most). So, help little ones craft presents—such as journals, calendars, and personally packaged edible treats—for their favorite people. Kids can personalize items inspired by their art projects to show their appreciation for their parents, grandparents, and teachers—and take pride in putting their creativity to good use for a generous cause. Whether they're packing granola gift boxes or decorating cookie tins with hand-drawn designs, the little ones in your life will jump at the opportunity to pick up crayons, markers, and colored pencils to make something special. Many of these projects double as easy ways to make multiple gifts using your kids' artwork—and all of them are bound to make any adult smile this holiday season.
