10 Awesome Homemade Ideas for kids

These great posts all came from last weeks Tuesday Tots linkup
where we featured Colour themed activities


There are so many fabulous things that you can buy for children these days that perhaps some people might wonder why you'd bother spending time making things you can often buy for very little. I think, however, that you always end up with a different experience when you take a bit of time to actually create these things yourself. Sure, buying it is the easy option, but aside from the feeling of accomplishment, children learn such a great deal from being part of creating things themselves. From the physical skills they learn through the processes, to developing creativity, imagination, concepts of recycling and more, there is so much to be gained from a bit of good ol' D.I.Y. handmade goodness. And of course the most important part, it's fun!

1.  Help ease your child's fears by making these Worry dolls for kids from My Little Bookcase

2.  Develop fine motor skills and have fun playing with Monster munch clips from Lalymom
