Handmade Christmas: Toddler-Made Gifts

This is my first Christmas with a talking, incessantly energetic toddler that wants to help mommy with everything that she's doing. Sometimes it's exhausting having a shadow for everything I do, simply because it takes twice as long with her in tow.

But when it came to making Christmas gifts for the grandparents this year, having a little one that was so eager to do crafts was such a joy! I found some wonderful projects on Pinterest, picked up the supplies after work one day and took a morning with her to create some fun and memorable gifts for the grandparents (and for me too!)

My favorites will always be the footprint or handprint ornaments. We did one with her when she was 4 weeks old, so I'm excited to add another to our tree! I love the Santa hand, mostly because Juliet loves him so much :)

And the best part about these gifts? Totally easy to do last minute but still something that family members will love!

What is your fave project for little kids this time of year?
