10 DIY Holiday Gifts to make with the Kids

As parents, we’re always trying to find clever ways to make a gift out of our child’s hand/feet prints. It’s almost an obsession. We have to document their precious little fingers and toes for every year they’re alive. They make for irresistible gifts for loved ones. And thanks to Pinterest, there are so many varieties of gifts you can make with hand and feet prints, how could anyone resist?!

Handmade gifts will always hold a sentimental value for whoever receives them. We’ve compiled a list of some of the best presents to make with the kids, to help make this holiday gift-giving extra special.

Charity of the Quarter: “Helping for the Holidays”

As part of our Charity of the Quarter, “Helping for the Holidays”, we’ve adopted two precious angels from the Salvation Army Angel Tree. We’ve asked all our families to participate by donating gifts and clothing for these children in order to help make this holiday memorable for them. This is always our most popular charity of the year!

“Charity” has always been a large part of our school community; it’s amazing to witness our families come together and prepare donations for those in need. We believe it’s important to instill a sense of charity and generosity in all our children, in order to help them become responsible, caring members of society. This is truly the season for giving! We encourage everyone to participate in the Angel Tree Charity, and give to those in need!
