Kids Make Gift Ideas
My idea for kids making gifts for parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles is clove fruit — clove apples, clove oranges, clove clementines, clove kumquats, and clove lady apples. We tackled this craft project last year and found that it wasn’t too difficult though it takes longer than you’d think. This year we will try smaller fruit like lady apples and kumquats! Keep in mind too that you don’t have to cover the fruit entirely in cloves and it will still smell nice and look pretty.
I left our bowl of clove oranges, clementines and kumquats near the radiator and the fruit dried out nicely, gently perfuming the room for a month or so. I have more ideas for gifts kids can make on my Pinterest board of DIY ideas for kids like these below. Do you have a post on gifts kids can make? Please link up!

Capability:Mom uses Mod Podge to make great containers and boxes that are functional and beautiful from last year. We both have small houses so we always think function and size matter. This year, she updates her post with fold over elastic hair stretchy bands.
