I think most of the Christmas Crafts on the site would make great gifts from the kids, but here are a few that I created with gift giving in mind.

Christmas Handprint Craft Ideas:

Handprint and footprint crafts make great Christmas craft projects. Rather than simply doing the projects on paper, you can stamp them with fabric paint onto t-shirts or napkins. You can arrange them on paper and cover with clear contact paper to make placemats. Or you can trace onto craft foam, cut out and glue to make wall hangings and Christmas tree ornaments. Here's a list of hand and footprint Christmas projects on the site:

Here are some more thoughts that viewers have sent in:

  1. I have a home daycare with kids the ages of 0-7. Some christmas gift we have made are. Handprint wreath on burlap with a wooden dowel to make it a banner. I just painted the kids hands green and helped them place it in a circle then I painted their thumb red to make berries. I also took blue felt and painted their feet white and had them stand on the felt then painted their hands white and and placed them out next to the top of their feet. This makes an angel. We also glued fake doll hair on the balls of the feet and wiggle eyes under the hair. We have also traced their hands onto fusible web then fused the hand prints to different types of christmas fabric, then I cut out the handprints and fused them to a piece of Christmas fabric in the shape of a tree with the hands pointing downward. I also made this product a banner with a dowel.
  2. Another idea I had is to trace my kids hands out of constructions paper and put it in the center of the plate and on the edge put their name and the date. I think that would make a great Christmas gift for grandparents.
  3. One idea that worked very well was to make the child's handprints in dough that is bakeable (self-hardening). Put the year and child's name on it along with a hanger on the back. I had a parent call me when she opened the gift on Christmas day, in tears. Said it was the best thing she could have every gotten because although she always wanted to do this, she put it off and had we not done it, her child would have grown up before she did it herself.

Christmas Gifts/crafts Your Kids Can Make for Their Friends and Family?

I watch The Chew now and then. I saw a craft to make that kids would like and adults would enjoy. Take a white candle (various sizes) and cinnamon sticks. Cut the sticks to a little above the candles and hot glue the sticks to the outside of the candle. Tie a pretty ribbon or string(s) around it and give two or three candles of various sizes in a nice basket. We're doing this for teachers and neighbors. The scent of the cinnamon will come out as the candle burns, and it looks very festive!
