5 Delightful DIY Birthday Gift Ideas
It can be frustrating to go out and buy a birthday gift only to come back with something that three other party guests already purchased! Or, maybe you want to encourage a less materialistic attitude in your kids? Whatever the reason, it might be time to consider a do-it-yourself (DIY) solution for your child’s next birthday.
#1. Personalised Gifts
If you’re looking for fun gift ideas for kids, a personalised gift can do the trick. You could consider adding some patches to a backpack or embroidering your child’s name on a sweatshirt.
Something your child uses every day and that they’re excited to call their own is a great option. A lunchbox, beanie, scarf or pillow are all good options that are easy to personalise.
#2. First Sewing/Crafting Basket
If you’re considering crafts to create a birthday present for your child, chances are you’d enjoy sharing your hobby with your with them. If they have expressed an interest in learning how to sew, knit or do other craft projects, you can put together a great birthday present that will also help you spend some quality time together.
Consider using some materials from around the house to make them a ‘first sewing/crafting basket.’ They’ll be excited to have something of their own to use as they learn how to sew, knit, crochet, craft. You can also stock it with things that will be safe for them to use, like large plastic needles, colourful yarn, and felt shapes with pre-cut holes to practice their stitches. Plus, all these activities will help them improve their fine motor skills.
