Homemade Christmas Gifts: Ideas for kids!

Play Dough Activity Mats

Play dough activity mats are some of our most popular downloads, and for good reason! They are really fun, help develop imagination and find motor skills, and make wonderful homemade Christmas gifts or stocking stuffers! They have also been well-appreciated in the autism and preschool community. We have several different sets, see them here. If you don't have a laminator, you can also use dry-erase sleeves to make these last forever!Play dough activity mats--and other homemade Christmas gifts that kids LOVE!


Busy Bags

Busy bags for days! We have over 100 busy bag ideas here on mothersniche.com and many of them can be made on a very small budget! They are a PERFECT homemade Christmas gift for ages 2-6 and many of them would also be great stocking stuffers! See our busy bags category to see all that we have!

TONS of Busy Bags! And other Homemade Christmas gifts that KIDS LOVE!


Quiet Books

These printable homemade quiet books are the reason this website was created and have been such a joy to thousands of kids. We now have several different versions: Bible quiet book, Farm Quiet book, Princess quiet book, Food Quiet book, and zoo quiet book! These quiet books would make adorable homemade Christmas gifts! If you are making quiet books, play dough mats, or busy bags, I recommend laminating at home, rather than at your local copy shop–it's cheaper in the long run, especially since you can now get a laminator for under $20 these days! My very first laminator was over $200! I'm so glad they are more affordable now, I use mine all the time.Printable quiet books are one of my favorite homemade Christmas gifts!


How to Make Lip Gloss (easy and all-natural)

For your older kids, throw some homemade lip gloss in their stocking! This makes an awesome gift for friends too!



Peg Dolls

Peg dolls make really fun homemade Christmas gifts, and again…fit great in a stocking! Not only are they fun to make, but ridiculously cheap! They cost just cents to make! See my peg doll tutorial to see all the different kinds that I made!

Peg Dolls are so cheap and easy to make yourself and make awesome gifts.

Lego Trays. tables, and travel cases
