Gifts Made By Me

Gifts Made by me Box

Kids love making gifts for their loved ones so this box makes it easy for them (and you). With SIX great creative activities, children can make and give keepsake gifts to their favorite people. They’ll paint Homemade Wrapping Paper using recycled paper, and then paint, tile, and tie dye beautiful and personal presents. Your child will unlock their creativity while learning about the artistic process and media used in each activity.
