Do you want to give your children, nieces and nephews something homemade? Here are our most beautiful DIY gifts for children.

DIY gift ideas for children

I love making little things myself for the children. Making gifts for kids yourself is not only a great activity, you will also be rewarded twice when you later see how much fun the gifts bring while playing. In addition, you often save a lot of money with homemade gifts, as toys have become much more expensive in recent years. Homemade items can also have great added value in terms of quality and can, for example, replace plastic with high-quality materials. Whether you’re building dollhouses, making salt dough donuts, or sewing something, do whatever you enjoy most. Here is our selection.
