When it comes to birthdays and holidays, it’s a time where kids can be seen circling toy ads and making wish lists.
This year surprise them with something they will treasure for a lot longer than the most recent toy craze.
These homemade gifts for kids are fun to make and will be loved for years to come.
Don’t you just love gifts that are homemade?
At Christmas time we love to make and give these homemade ornaments. These homemade kids gifts are sure to make any child smile.
Homemade Gift for Kids
Know a little girl who loves baby dolls? She will be thrilled to receive a doll sling to tote her baby around.
This stuffed animal medical kit is perfect for any young doctor to fix their stuffed lovey’s boo-boos.
Give them a gift that will enable them to create their own gifts in the future with this beautiful child’s sewing kit.

Beat the “stuck indoors blues” and get kids moving with a pair of these classic tin can stilts.
Kids of all ages will have fun trying out this simple DIY balance board.
Felt boards are always popular with young children. Make your own felt board and they can act out their favorite nursery rhymes. (You can buy Felt Board Sets online or create your own to go with the felt board.)
Younger children can work on fine motor skills and basic geometry with this DIY geoboard.
With this felt pizza kit kids will have fun taking orders and pretending to bake up pizzas for hours.
Here’s a fun twist to that store-bought puzzle: create a magnetic puzzle!
This reversible tic-tac-toe and hopscotch mat is sure to be a huge hit when the kids are stuck indoors.
These treat soaps would make the perfect stocking stuffer. Plus, they will encourage good hand washing! (Have a dinosaur fan at home like I do? Try these mini dinosaurs inside.)
This mini doll house is a great stocking stuffer idea, and it fits easily into a purse or pocket to keep kids entertained when out and about.
Finally, create your very own I-Spy game. These would be great when traveling in the car.

These are great suggestions.
We have all of our Christmas gifts for the girls but we like to do homemade gifts for the girls’ birthdays. I’m pinning this to my Deliberate GIFTS board for future reference.
Thanks for sharing (and for linking up to the #SHINEbloghop).
Wishing you a lovely weekend.
Thanks so much for pinning!
We exchange home made gifts every Yule, these are great ideas!

Kids would love any of these! I’m intrigued by the DIY balance board. Thanks for sharing at the Thoughtful Spot!
I have been wanting to make a balance board for a while now, too! 🙂 I know we have the board, I just need to find the right item to go at the bottom.
I love your ideas! Thanks for linking them up with us for Tuesday Talk! I’m featuring your post this week! -Jess, Sweet Little Ones
