2 Simple Handmade Gifts for Kids

There is nothing better than showing someone you are thinking of them and love them!

I have always believed that the best thing you can do is to hand make gifts and also to share how you made it and to encourage your kids to do the same. It gets all the family involved and together enjoying themselves.

Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it.

Albert Einstein

Around the holidays is always a good excuse to hand make gifts, whether its some biscuit’s or a card, it really doesn’t matter what your skills are! Just give it a go and as Albert Einstein said “express yourself and have faith in yourself…”

This is one i have tried recently for my son. It was so enjoyable and to see his little face light up was everything!

The pattern i used was free online and many more can be found if you google teddy bear patterns | templates. You don’t even have to use fur, you could use some old shirts or even jeans.
