Handmade Holiday Gift Ideas for Kids

It’s not even October yet, but I’m already starting to freak out about the impending holiday season a little bit. I love the holidays, and we celebrate a lot of them in our mixed faith home, but the start of the holiday season always seems to find me with an overwhelming to-do list of homemade presents that I’m determined to make for my boys and little time to accomplish it all (why, oh why do I never actually start working on these gifts in January!?).

Since my kids don’t actually read this blog yet, I thought it would be fun to make a list of a few ideas that I’m hoping to make for them this year.

For my 2-year-old:

Tree House

Okay, technically this one is something I want my husband to make, but it’s still on the list! If he protests I can always try my hand at the cardboard version below.

Felt Camping Set & Tools from Big Little Felt Universe
Sorting Bowl Set
Rainbow Stacker

For my 5 & 6-year-olds: 

Bow & Arrow Set
Star Light
