Whether it’s Christmas, Birthday, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, or Grandparent’s Day, there isn’t a care-giver in the world that wouldn’t love a hand-made gift from your child. What would make it twice as nice? A kid-made gift, personalized with a name or initials!
I’ve found a few ideas for personalized kid-made gifts and divided it by age.
Nature walks with Roo have been one of our favorite activities together. She calls it “esploring.” It’s amazing how a little exercise and fresh air lifts both of our moods.
