Homemade Gifts

With Mother's Day coming up this weekend and Father's Day around the corner, I thought I would highlight a few gifts we have made in the past to give to grandparents.

Hand Print Towel
We made this towel with a simple white tea towel and fabric paint.  You could even use an apron.
Photo Bookmark Tutorial
Even if you have an only child, you can still make a great bookmark (or refrigerator decoration) for the grandparents!
 Star Wars Peg Dolls
I made these for my children, but given the right person, they would make a fine adult gift, as well.  (My sister has hinted at wanting a set for her 40th birthday.)
 Homemade Cards
This year we will try to send all of the grandparents a card made by the children.
Not necessarily homemade, but personalized gifts are often popular.  Whether it be a monthly planner (beginning in the month of choice) or a wooden box, I shared some of my favorites.
