<p>Okay, so my nearly 3 yo really loves doing 'arty' things, and has decided that this year she would like to make Christmas presents for people.  Of course, she'll need my help to do this and I have *no* clue what to do.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Help? Any nice easy ideas for things I can make with my LO as Christmas presents?  They'll have to be fairly cheap too, as we're tight on cash.  And bearing in mind that I just had to look up instructions for how to make a paper snowflake online! :bag</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The only idea I've had is to put hand/foot prints on T-shirts with fabric paint (but I've no idea how to get the baby's prints on there!).</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Any advice or suggestions will be most welcome! TIA</p>

<p>Salt Dough ornaments are fun and easy to make. Use cookie cutters to get holiday shapes like trees or stars. After you paint seal the ornament with spray glitter.</p>

<p>Also at craft stores you can buy small wooden ornaments that you can paint. They come in a ton of holiday shapes like snowmen, stars, trees, presents. Some have place to put a photo of your child. Great gift.</p>

<p>Book marks are a good gift and can be made of cardstock paper with stickers, stamps, collage art. Add a hole punch to the top and tie on a ribbon. The bookmarks can be creative shapes too, not just long rectangles.</p>

<p>Here is a family fun craft site, link for Christmas crafts:</p>

<p>You can look around at non Christmas crafts too.</p>

<p>Have fun!!</p>

<p>You can also dehydrate citrus (grapefruit, orange, lemon, etc) slices and use those as natural ornaments.  Even if you don't have a dehydrator, they're simple to make.</p>
