Handmade baby and kids crafts

We celebrated Christmas a bit early with my husband's side of the family since one of his cousins was in town from Okinawa.  We were so thankful to be able to get together with everyone this year.  

At Thanksgiving the little cousins exchanged names for a cousin gift exchange.  Our kids drew two babies and a two year old.  I made a few gifts for them as part of the exchange.

For the youngest babe in the bunch, I created this "T is for Trevi" print.  Graphic Design is not my forte, so it took me more hours than I would like to admit, but at least now I feel more confident in Picnik thanks to the great tutorial from Cheri at I Am Momma.

The next two cousins we drew were sisters.  Both heading back to Japan on several LONG flights, I thought I would make them a few things that could quietly entertain them on the airplane.

For the three month old, I made this soft tag plushie.  I used this lion for inspiration.

And for the two year old, I made an I spy bag.  There are lots of tutorials out there.  I used this one.

Did you make any fun gifts for kids this holiday season?
