10 Gifts You Can Make for Kids | Life as MOM - Check out these fun gifts you can make your self. Crafting skill not required.

Years ago when we lived on an extremely tight budget, we had no money for Christmas gifts. Rather than show up empty-handed for holiday get-togethers, I started making all the gifts and greeting cards that I gave each year. It was definitely a labor of love.

But, since I had more time than money, it was the best way to spread holiday cheer without going broke.
