Homemade Gifts

We have a tradition in our family where the kids draw names and make each other gifts for Christmas. They love making them and they love receiving them.  They can only spend $5 or less for materials.  This is what we came up with this year. These were the first gifts they opened on Christmas Eve.

George was a little lazy this year.  He gave Emily some crochet hooks and yarn and said, "Make your own gift." (This one cost a little more than $5.)

Bradley got a Chinese Chess game from Wendy. Daddy helped with this one.

Sarah got a solitaire "Cracker Barrel" peg game from Bradley. Daddy helped with this one too.

Wendy got a golf tee Tic Tac Toe game from Jason. Daddy helped with this one as well.

Jason got a scripture case with his name in silver glitter letters from Rachel.  I helped on this one.  I just used David's old scripture case that wasn't being used.

 Rachel got a beaded necklace and bracelet from Emily.  The beads were a birthday gift for Emily and she was so pleased to put them to use.  I wish I had a better picture of it.

George got a ribbon pacifier holder from Sarah. I helped with this one.  I wasn't sure what we were going to use for the clip, but one day we were in a parking lot and there was the perfect clip on the ground as a stepped out of the car.  It's the kind that are usually on name badges.  I cleaned it, and it was perfect.
