Christmas Presents Kids Can Make
From the Series Christmas Crafts from Kathy Ross
Add your own creative sparkle to the holiday season with great gifts that you can make yourself. If your parents have trouble finding their car at the mall, a Snowman Antenna Ball would be just the thing. A Holiday Stamp Holder would look great on Dad’s desk. Mom would enjoy a Sticker Star Tree Pin. Try Jingle Bell Hair Snaps for a sister or friend, and boys of all ages will love the Christmas Candy Ball. There’s something for everyone, even your pets. This collection of twenty-nine projects are easy to make and will cost almost nothing since most of the materials can be found around the house. And, best of all, gifts handmade by you will mean a lot to your family and friends.
School Library Journal
“Ross offers 29 handmade gifts for children to create for their families and friends. Most of the materials can be found in the home and often involve recycling items (old felt-tip pen caps, film canisters, laundry-bottle caps, Christmas catalogs). . . Although there are a proliferation of holiday craft books, this one holds a rare place among them with ideas for gifts that the intended audience can make without adult help.” —School Library Journal
