    What are some craft ideas that children can make to give as gifts?

    The crafts can be made by any child regardless of age or gender; it can be more complex for older children.

    Collect dropped pine cones, nuke them in the microwave for a about a minute (to make sure to kill any critters) then gather together in a nice hurricane jar or shallow bowl.

    Get some towels and fabric paint.  Trace the kids hands with the fabric paint onto the towels.  The kids then can then turn the hand tracings into angels, turkeys, or flowers.  Fund gift for grandma.

    Hi there! Here is an idea that kids can make and give as a gift to a friend, parent and/or teacher!
    I hope this helps!
    I copied the instructions....I'm new at this and I wasn't sure how to add a link.

    Friendship Frame January-Anytime Craft

    What a fun way to capture great memories with great friends! The Friendship Frame is so easy to make and it appeals to all ages, especially the 12-14 age group. This project can be created at school, at home or even for a birthday party activity.

    Attn: Teachers! What a great way to reinforce letter recognition, spelling, fine motor skills and creativity! Capture school memories and create this frame with your students. You may substitute the wooden frame for heavy card stock. You can skip painting the word and it will look just as nice. See photo below.

    What you'll need:

    Wooden frame or heavy card stock

    Alphabet Pasta





    How to:

    Start by painting the frame your desired color and let dry. Next, make a list of words that you'd like to add to the frame. Pick words that express feelings and cherish memories. Once you have your words begin searching for the letters. Glue the Alphabet Pasta to the frame.

    Now that you've added your words, check the spelling...twice smile Brush paint on the Alphabet Pasta to give it some color if you'd like. Finally, tape your favorite photo to the back of the frame.
