We all know that budgeting can get tight around the holiday season. Why does it seem like there is always too many gifts to buy, and never enough money? This year, you can keep your kids happy, while making your budget even happier. How does one do that? By DIYing their gifts, of course! Here are my favorite kid-approved DIYs.
When I was a kid, I used to BEG my Mom for a messenger bag to take to school. If you have kiddos with similar taste in school supplies, you can make this project from Crazy Little Projects.
In love with the messenger bag from the previous slide? Did you know that you could shrink it down and make it the PERFECT satchel for carrying around necessities. I know several kids (mostly my own..) who could benefit from this DIY.
If you have a kiddo that NEVER knows where a pencil is, make them this! A pencil pouch (complete with a zipper) is a welcome addition to any school-aged kid’s life. Heck, even I want one!
Fabric headbands would be the perfect gift for a little girl of any age. Make them in any color that you wish, or any pattern. The options are seriously endless. Check out the tutorial at Lil Luna.
Got a little boy that loves to dress nice? I envy you, so much! Make them a reversible baby boy tie. Now, any outfit will look classy! Make one yourself via Lil Luna.
I don’t think it’s possible for a baby to have too many bibs! They dirty them oh-so quickly! Keep clothes clean, and looking stylish with this tutorial from Stubbornly Crafty. Heck, if your kids are so young, they’ll never complain about your gift, anyway!
Every kiddo needs something to tote their toys around in! They may not love this gift at first, but they’ll love it when they can throw their toys in their bag and go! Catch the tutorial at Love Grows Wild.
Got a kiddo that loves dinosaurs? Then they’ll certainly love this DIY project! If you’re a master seamstress, I doubt they’ll even know that this one is homemade! I want to make one for myself! Catch the tutorial at See Vanessa Craft.
If your little boy (or girl) has toy cars galore, this may be just the thing to keep their toys organized and out from under your feet! Get organized with this DIY gift from Crazy Little Projects.
If you have a small budget, this gift idea is the perfect for young boys, and it’s seriously cheap! You’ll need masking tape, and a toy car. This way, they can build their own raceways! Via Sister Suitcase Blog.
