Who’s more fun during the holidays than a kid? Granted, there may be some temper tantrums, and a little sensory overload, but watching their little faces light up at the sight of a giant Christmas tree or a gift with their name on it is pretty special. With the range of ages, there are SO many things you can make that they’ll love. Here’s just a few!

As far as I can tell the Flats doll fabric from Angela Yosten is long gone, but the free foldable house pattern that was meant to go with it would still be great for kids to use with paper or magnetic dolls.
This race track from Gluesticks is double-sided, and folds up so it can be stored easily. Perfect for your future racers.
As Mama Papa Bubba shows here, a tackle box is perfect for creating a kids’ craft kit. Those little slots are great for tiny beads, buttons, and other bits for making.
I know some grown “kids” who would love these puzzle blocks from Rhythms of Play.
Friendship bracelets are a classic gift, and there are lots of ways to make them. Honestly WTF shows you how it’s done.
Weighted blankets are popular right now, and Mary Martha Mama shows how you can make one yourself.
What kid wouldn’t love Mr. Foofs the Polar Bear from Fluffmonger?
These bow-shaped pillows from Sew Cute Patterns would be a great gift to use in a bedroom or playroom.
Of course, this would have to be “just add ice cream”, but isn’t this sundae gift set from Smashed Peas and Carrots adorable?
Spoons filled with extras to add to a cup of hot chocolate are fun, but they’re really cute when you use wooden spoons, as Hello Homebody did here. They make great gifts when paired with a mix.
If the kid you make these Peek-a-Boo Pals for, using the pattern from Gingermelon, isn’t impressed, feel free to send them my way. The dolls, not the kid.
Or if dolls aren’t their thing, try these cute planes, using the pattern from BuggaBugs.
