DIY Personalized T-Shirts for Kids

Who doesn’t like personalized stuff? When it comes to kids, they just gleam with pride to see their names even on the always personalized “birthday cakes”. Needless to mention their reaction if they get an outfit that has the word they recognize the most.. their name. It is icing on the cake if it is hand made by you just for them. This was something that made me attempt this project. We had a reunion a while ago and that was the first time our little munchkins were meeting each other. I created these personalized tees for each one of them. My reward was the high voltage smiles and the hugs I got from the little angels.

Gift Box Pop Up Card: Kids Craft

Children are excited to be back in school mainly to exchange New Year wishes with friends and teachers. What could be more apposite than a handmade card to go along with the wishes? It becomes all the more special when a pair of tiny hands has worked on it.

I love crafting with Dolly and we bond so much over crafting. Crafts are a great learning experience for kids and helps grow their imagination. When Dolly wanted to make cards for her teachers I decided to let her take charge, choose her colours and papers for the card. We chose a simple gift box pop card and sat down to make this with a handful of basic craft supplies.
