Some holiday gifts that children can make include a compact disc photo ornament, a hand print painting and an air freshener. These project ideas are made with common art supplies and household items.
A holiday ornament made with a compact disc, felt, string, glue and a personal photo is a simple craft. Tie a string around the center of the disk for hanging the ornament. Glue the photo on a piece of felt; then glue the felt to the disc. Sequins, beads or glitter can also be used to decorate the ornament.
A hand print painting is a gift craft for young children that is made with finger paint, glue, a paper plate and a ribbon. Glue both ends of the ribbon to the top of the paper plate to make a loop for hanging. Use finger paint to cover the child’s hand. Place the child’s hand on the center of the plate to make the hand print painting.
An air freshener craft requires a glass jar, flowers, a hanger and a string. Dry the flowers by hanging them upside down. To hang the flowers, bundle the stems together; then tie them to a hanger with a string. Put the hanger in a dark closet for a week while the flowers dry. Add the dried flowers to the glass jar for a decorative air freshener.
