Giving gifts at Christmas time are fun and significant traditions for many families. Yet children who do not have money to spend themselves are sometimes excluded from the process of giving gifts. Fortunately there are ways that your children can give meaningful gifts without the need of spending any money. They can make their own Christmas crafts. A craft for Christmas is so ideal because crafts can be made to suit any taste and skill level. So this year, encourage your children to give something really thoughtful by making the gifts themselves that they can give to others.
Reindeer Hand Prints
To make a reindeer out of a hand print you must first start with the hand print. Get some brown construction paper and trace your child’s hand. Cut out the shape of the hand. Your fingers will form the antlers. Knowing that the antlers of the reindeer belong at the top of your reindeer head, glue or draw on the eyes, nose and mouth onto the face of your reindeer. Give this gift as it is as a piece of art or make it into a card by gluing your reindeer hand on the front of another piece of construction paper that has been folded in half.
