This year we are encouraging our kids to make each other a small gift. With the help of me, or their dad, they are each working on three small gifts to give their siblings. The girls have more elaborate, and very secret plans, but even the two year old is helping to make a big batch of microwave play dough for his brother and sisters.
We are trying not to get too carried away with this project as it’s busy enough at this time of year without any extra pressure, but my hope is by spending a little time thinking about and making something for their siblings, maybe, just maybe, they will appreciate them more and fight less? I can dream can’t I?!?
Without giving away too many secrets here are some of the ideas we’ve found for easy gifts to make for kids.

Do your kids give each other gifts?
Or do you make hand made gifts for others?
