Five Fun Homemade Gift Ideas for Grandparents

Here are Five Fun Homemade Gift Ideas 
for Grandparents 
(or Parents, or Babysitters, or Great Aunts, or Kind Neighbors)
or anyone who would appreciate a special gift 
made with love by your kids!

 (For Five Fun Gifts Ideas FOR Kids ~ Check out THIS post!)

1. Artwork Candle
{ here at Come Together Kids }

Who wouldn't want to receive a cute candle 
featuring a child's own artwork?
It's an inexpensive project, 
but surprisingly easy and really special.
You can use markers and a drawing like the candle above,
or paints and thumbprints like these candles we made!




2. Handprint Trees
{ here at Come Together Kids }

We used fabric and the kids' handprints 
to make these Cherry Blossom trees this Spring,
but you could easily do one for any season 
using fabric or even paper.
You could even do all four seasons on one canvas!


And next are several great gift ideas 
that were linked up to our
Homemade Gifts Party...




3. Canvas Photo Projects
 { Clean & Sensible }

I'm a sucker for photo projects with kids and families
and these canvases are just awesome! 
I think I know what my kids' grandparents 
will be getting this year! ;) 





4. Memory Binder
 { Craft Buds }

How clever is this idea?
Create a Memory Binder that includes kids' artwork pieces
along with photos of the kids creating those masterpieces.
It would be fun to even add a project-a-month promise
to keep adding to the binder all year.  






Handprint Ornaments
 { Easy Breezy }

You can't go wrong with a gift of adorable ornaments
made with kids' handprints.
A great keepsake to make with your own kids 
or as a group project for a class or playgroup.




Thanks, ladies, for sharing these great gift ideas.

  6. Hi Laura, these craft ideas are gorgeous. As a grandma I can say that I would love to receive any one of them from my little grandson. Thanks for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris
