Rather than spending an arm and a leg on your Christmas gifts, try spending no more than $100 altogether. Sounds impossible, right? Kids can give gifts that they helped make such as a framed art project. Grandparents love to get something that the kids are proud to say they created, especially if it has their handprints or fingerprints on it. Use air dry clay to capture your kids feet and hands. Here is a quick list of more projects to try with the kids:

1. Personalized Christmas Tree ornaments
2. Chocolate covered & decorated pretzels or spoons
3. Home-baked goodies
4. A new photo of each family member
5. A recording of your children singing a Christmas song
6. Homemade candles or soaps
7. Fragrant sachets
8. Decorative throw pillows
9. Beaded keychain
10. Decorated photo frame
11. Decorated pens wrapped and covered with feathers or flowers. So cute no one will ever steal it.
