Xmas gifts handmade by children

Every year since my eldest was walking I have always got my kids to make something to give our loved ones for xmas! As the years go on, it gets harder and harder to think of new things :)

Our Xmas 2012 gifts. Again, online art store was my source. Kids painted and decorated them to their hearts content. They made a lovely table feature :)

Xmas 2010. Purchased online calico shopping bags and a bunch of fabric paint!  The older kids painted pictures, the younger 2 we just did hand and foot prints :)

We have done this twice, once with my first 2 kids, then again a few years later with my next 2. I purchased the tea towells from teatowelkeepsakes and put the kids hands in fabric paint. Very easy :)

The tealight candles the kids made for our loved ones. Purchase from your local art store or online and get the kids to paint them up and decorate. Very easy!  My kids also gave some out to their friends, with those ones I purchase the battery operated tea lights. Word of warning though, if you want to send overseas, you cant send with the batteries in due to risk, we found out that the hard way when we tried to send a parcel to my daughters friend in Malaysia :)

Xmas 2013. I ordered online via an art supplier (or you can visit your local art store) plain wood xmas tree tealight candle holders).  My older 2 had the job of painting them up, and then all of them glued on the "pretties". Great handmade gift for your loved ones :)
