Thinking about making some cool DIY Christmas presents or homemade birthday gifts for kids? Good idea! After all, so many of today’s toys are not quite made the way they used to be. Plus, a homemade toy or DIY children’s gift is so much more special. Make something original, unique and sure to be enjoyed by all. Parents absolutely love it when people take the time to make something for their little darlings, so if you have some gifts to buy for friend’s kids, nieces, nephews and/or grandchildren, why not consider making them this year?

DIY Christmas Gifts for Kids
1. Kiddie Workbench
I think this may be the cutest DIY idea for kids Christmas presents that I’ve ever seen. This cool little workbench is adorable, but also easy and inexpensive. I made one of these for my nephew’s birthday gift last year and both he and his father enjoy having him be able to work right next to Dad in the garage. They sent me a picture of the workbench right next to his Dad’s workbench with my little darling boy standing there with his little leather tool belt I made him last year and you would not believe how unbelievably cute it was! By using an upcycled old end table, some pegboard, and your inner creative genius that we all possess, you can make this awesome DIY workbench for kids in about an hour.
2. Glittered Lace Crown
Do you have a little lady in waiting? Make your little princess’s dream come true with this super sparkly DIY glitter crown that can be made in any color she fancies. Try a purple on like this, pink, blue, gold or one of each. Perfect birthday party favor idea for girls and dress up gift we love to give for birthdays, these crowns are quick DIYs both you and your child will have fun making. We made some for my Daughter’s Birthday and all the little princesses got to embellish their own crown, it was a terrific group craft. An easy homemade gift idea for girls, make a few of these to wrap up for inexpensive but adorable DIY Christmas gifts.
3. Cozy Car Caddy
DIY kids gifts are just SO incredibly cute, and this one does not fail to have me say awwww…. So colorful, so practical and so adorably handmade, this DIY car caddy is a quick sewing project idea for boys (or girls) Pockets for storing cars are numbered, so kids can learn to count along with having a nice organized place to put away toys. I used them as gifts for a group of children I needed last minute inexpensive Christmas gifts and the kids loved them.

4. CD Shelf Doll House
I have always remembered the dollhouse my father made for me as a little girl and thought how nice it would be to do the same for my daughter. However, I am afraid I don’t have the amount of time it takes to make an elaborate dollhouse as he did, nor do I have the woodworking skills to do so. However, when I saw this fun and easy DIY idea for a homemade dollhouse made from a CD shelf, I rethought this. I can do this one! (and I did) Half the fun of making a dollhouse is decorating it inside with little tiny furniture, appliances, and people. If you are a crafter like me and need a cool but easy dollhouse to put your handmade little accessories in, here’s the one.
5. DIY Kids Chalkboard Town
One Mom might see a pile of scrap wood, but this Mom sees FREE toys! DIY is a way of life around here, my kids are used to playing in the garage. My youngest son is constantly creating and building projects using our scrap wood. So with a little help from chalkboard paint, the scraps from our new deck became this chalkboard town that my Son drew himself, talk about rewarding!
