easy handmade gifts for grandparents?

my kids are in grade school so the typical things like a handprint with a poem may not be the right gift :)

  • The craft stores have decorative sidewalk squares that your child can design/decorate themselves. They're pretty easy to do & look great! You can also get a large white or light colored sweatshirt/hoody and have the kids put their hands in fabric paint- so all the grandkids' handprints are on it. Once the paint dries, they can put their names inside the handprints. The kids could also put together & decorate a gingerbread house. They have kits w/ all the supplies you need. They can also make their own ornaments. We've done all of the things I've mentioned, and all were a hit. :) Enjoy your holidays.

  • Do you sew? My mom helped my daughter make "heating pads" for her other adult relatives - they picked out some soft fabric and made a "pillow" with deer corn in it instead of regular stuffing. Then you just put it in the microwave, heat for 2-3 minutes and it stays hot for a really long time. My mom printed a cute poem on it's use off the internet and attached it with a ribbon. I use mine all the time, especially in the winter!
    My daughter also has made candy cane and wreath ornaments out of tribeads (you can google it). And then there easy cross stitch kits that you can frame for ornaments or just knick knacks.
