Since my older boy was 2 years old, we started a tradition, that he made an ornament with at the ability on his age and gives it to the grandparents. This time the little brother joined him and they did it together :-).
Also, as the children get presents for Christmas (what we and other ones buy them), the adults get something homemade presents from us. Usually it is something gesture- present because we can do it together from the youngest to the oldest.
My husband and me make something homemade as well for the kids. They are something what they really want thanks to the adverts in the tv and or it costs too much we would spend (but we can do) or something we can’t buy in our country.
And what were these presents?
The kids painted on wood slices for the ornaments, I painted to cushion cover for my husband’s brother (he move to his new and first flat), we made orange tea bags (we bought oranges from Sicily through a local store, which were untreated), and we made bonbons.
Our older son likes Skylanders and everything which connects to it but it is unknow here yet. He knows it from the youtube channels of course :P. So I found a Skylander t-shirt in a second hand shop which has short sleeves and would be small when the weather will be ready for short sleeves and also he had a red pullover with no graphic, so I spent long minutes (app. 2 hours) to cut the Skylanders out and sew it to the pullover.
Our younger son likes houses so much. I have some candle ‘holder’ houses he used to play with, so my husband built 2 houses from wood and I painted them. One has a door as well ;-).
Do you make something home made for Christmas? Or for any occasion?
