Handmade for the Holidays - Gifts for Kids

Welcome to my Handmade for the Holidays series. Today I am featuring some handmade items from Etsy sellers that would be fun for the kids on your shopping list. Some of these things are so fun, you might wish they were available for "grown ups" too.

Custom Superhero Cape ($25)
Every kid is a super hero. How fun would it be for a kid to have their own little  custom cape with their initials on it. Pip and Bean makes fun capes for kids in a variety of colors.

Kids Apron ($13)
Do you have a little helper in the kitchen or want to get your child more interested in food preparation. Well, a sweet little apron might do the trick. Michigan-based Sweet Apronz has fun kids aprons in a variety of prints. These are not just for the girl either. Some of the best cooks I know started out as toddler boys in the kitchen.

Art Tote ($25)

A great way to keep art supplies organized and ready for a trip to grandmas house. Different fabrics and size are available from California-based Bells and Whistles.

Robot Tee ($15)

Based out of Kansas, Red Brick Wall has a variety of fun printed kid tees in all sizes and colors. This cute robot is just a sample. From narwhals to cupcakes to hearts and flowers, there is sure to be the perfect shirt for your little cutie.

Craft Kit ($10)
This little craft kit contains everything that is needed to make five clothespin crafts. Other craft kits from Pretty Paper Factory are available.

Learn to Knit Kit ($32)
This little learn to knit kit from Sew Unique contains everything needed to start a kid on a knitting project. It includes a little booklet that describes how to cast on, cast off, and basic stitches. It also includes bamboo needles, double knit wool, sewing needles and a few other little items.

Board Game ($30)

I remember playing a similar game like this when I was younger. Sometime called Aggravation, sometimes called Wahoo, this one features a hand-made birch board, and the 16 marbles in a carrying bag. Made by English Woodworks.

Felt Owl Mobile ($69)

Love Felt XOXO makes sweet mobiles out of felt with a variety of animals. This one has four baby owls and a tree. All made by hand.

Nefarious Ideas Journal ($10)
Here is a spot where older kids can journal and write what is going on in their world, including their nefarious ideas! Studio Zen has a variety of art items, including cheeky journals.

There you have it. Some of my fun  picks from Etsy that would be good for the little ones on your shopping list.  Check out my previous post on Gifts for Travelers, Gifts for Her, Gifts for Him, and Gifts for the Home. Happy shopping and hooray for supporting handmade. Coming up on November 30th, unique and fun gifts for the pets! Check back to see what I have picked out for you and your furry or feathered friend.
