Finding gifts kids can make can be a challenge sometimes. Gifts kids can make instead of the provider can sometimes be hard to find. Making gifts for parents is a fun way for parents to interact with the daycare program and it’s a fun way to teach kids to be givers. Kids LOVE making something special for mom and dad. It’s tough for providers sometimes to find gifts kids can make on their own that look like something cool that mom or dad would enjoy. 

Preschool Christmas gifts kids can make

Receiving a gift from your child that is 100% made by the provider is less memorable than getting something your child really worked hard on. I like to help my kids make their creations into something parents would think is cool, but I also like for them to be involved in it. I have compiled a great list of things that kids can make with minimal help from you that will still turn out great and parents will love. Each one is linked to a how to with all the instructions.

If you don’t have a daycare, your own kids would love to make gifts for grandparents, teachers, or other special people in their lives. Give them some supplies and let them go at it. Just click on the title to see a how to for each activity. 

Hand foot or foot print Christmas gifts kids can make for parents

There are tons of things kids can make with their hand print or foot print. Using their hands or feet makes the gift very personal just from that child. I love keeping things like that because you can compare later and see how much that hand or foot has grown. I love to watch kids be so excited to present their parents with what they made.

Kid made gifts-Homemade ornaments

Ornaments are a wonderful gift for parents because they can be cherished and re visited every year. I LOVE getting out ornaments my 24-year-old daughter made throughout her life. They also don’t take a whole lot of room to store, so you can easily keep them forever.
