Holiday kids” gift craft-along

Well, here we are friends: one month before Christmas. Whoa.

I”m don”t think I”m going to make my original goal of being totally done with holiday crafting by December first this year, but I feel confident that it won”t be too many more days after that. Perhaps by St. Nicholas day? Bit by bit, project by project, the gift pile is growing and I”m pretty happy about that.

I”d love to hear what you are making for the kids in your life and today”s the day we get to share that in our monthly Holiday Kids” Gift Craft-along Link-Up.

Looking for ideas?

I”ve started a Pinterest board to collect homemade gift ideas for kids that I”m adding to nearly every day. You can check it out here: Homemade Holiday Kids’ Gifts.

I”ve got a few posts from holidays past in the archives that you can check out, too:

How are your homemade holiday gifts coming along? What are you making for your kids? I”d love to see!

  1. Thank you for doing the craft-along. It was a nice reminder every month that I needed to get moving. Unfortunately, I am nowhere close to being finished with my list, but I am still hopeful a lot can get done without stressing myself out.
