For the little boys (and girls too!) I found this tutorial on making slime. Plus, if you are a homeschooler, I think it would also be a great chemistry experiment.
I followed the directions (I even used the off brand glue--I would have bought Elmers, but Target was out and when you have a two year bundled up in a fleece hat and gloves, a big puffy coat and snow boots--putting her back in the car seat and going to another store and getting her situated back in the stroller was just so not worth it, so store brand glue it was) and it turned out great!
It is kind of messy, but something I think the kids will enjoy.
Hopefully their moms will forgive me.
For little girls...I actually came up with this idea out of necessity. Well, not necessity--but frugality at the very least. I love all those little hair bows you can buy for little girls. Peanut has several--not "handmade" ones, but lots of cute ones that she has received as gifts. I wanted some in different colors for her and I was too cheap to buy them. So I got one of her store bought bows and took it apart. "I could so do that," I thought. So I did. As I was making some for Peanut, I thought, well I could do these as Christmas gifts too. So I did.
I was going to do a tutorial for you, but I am that
Do you make hand made gifts? If so, what do you do?
