6 Great Christmas Teacher Gifts That Kids Can Make
1. Christmas Ornaments
There are so many great Christmas ornament DIY tutorials around, many of which are perfect for kids to make. We have always loved these salt dough ornaments from Wholefully. These are perfect for making up a batch, make one for each teacher, one for your tree and give the others to loved ones. This was originally featured in the article, 12 Of The Best DIY Christmas Ornaments.
2. Succulent In A Jar
This succulent in a jar is super cute and simple to make. Your child’s teacher will love that they have spent the time to make such a thoughtful gift! The tutorial comes from Tatertots And Jello and was originally featured in the article, 10 Easy To Make Christmas Gifts.
3. Magnetic Clothespins
These magnetic clothespins are a great DIY gift choice for teachers. They can choose to use them in the classroom or take them home to use to hold important notes or photos on the fridge. We love the use of the scrabble tiles to spell Teacher but they would be equally as cute decorated with craft supplies or hand-painted by your child. Tutorial found over at My Craftily Ever After.
4. Fizzy Bath Bombs
This is a bath bomb recipe that our girls love to make! Color them with green and red for Christmas or add some dried lavender to make them extra pretty. They would look gorgeous stacked and wrapped in cellophane with a personalized note. Click here to get the recipe.
5. Slow Cooker Fudge
You are almost guaranteed success with slow cooker fudge, it is that easy to make. Younger children will need supervision around the hot slow cooker and with pouring the fudge into the prepared dish but they can help with adding of the ingredients into the slow cooker, stirring and decorating the fudge. A super yummy gift that the teacher is sure to love! Follow this link to find out more. For more food gift ideas check out our article, 6 Fantastic DIY Christmas Food Gifts.
6. Peppermint Soap
Soap may seem way too complicated for a child to make but this 10-minute peppermint soap is very simple. Younger children will need help as the soap base gets melted in the microwave so will be very hot! This is one scrumptiously smelling simple gift that anyone would be lucky to receive.
