Time to Let the Kids Craft!

~Heather also blogs at HEATHER LESSITER/It's All for the Best and The Fat Bottomed Girl.~

Spring gives us lots of opportunities to get those kiddos crafting. Mother's Day and Teacher Appreciation (or end of the school year) gifts are always more special when they're hand-made. Hand-made gifts take a lot of thought and planning and, let's face it, they have a little bit of love built right in. Below are some suggestions for crafts that any mom, grandma, teacher, principal, aunt or whomever will sincerely appreciate.

Homemade Bookmarks, made from ribbon or hand-stamped, are the perfect thing for a teacher or bookworm in the family.

Whip up a few 5 Minute No-Sew Purses for the girlie-girl in your life!

Kellie showed us how to make some fabulous Drink Coasters that I would LOVE to have!

Two years ago, the boys and I made Neck Coolers for Mother's Day and they were a HUGE hit! This is one of my most popular posts and a handmade item I get requests for all the time.
Gifts are extra special when they are made from scratch!!!
