Give the Gift of Creativity with One-of-a-Kind Maker KitsHoliday
With these sweet and simple craft kits, your girl can give a thoughtful gift to everyone on her list. Simply assemble all the necessary “ingredients” and add a pretty tag, instructions, and bow. Then the recipient can create something special with the supplies from the kit. It’s a double DIY that makes giving and receiving creative and delightful.
Here are three ideas to try:
If the person on your girl’s list loves nature, a tiny terrarium kit may be just right for her! Include everything she needs to make her own mini world to explore. You might include things like:
- cute plastic animals
- small stones
- fake moss
- plastic plants
- clean glass jar with a lid
To give, place the supplies in a pretty plastic bag and put the bag inside the jar.
Give a gift that makes baking from scratch a real treat with a classic recipe-in-a-jar baking kit. Using your favorite, simple recipe, carefully layer pre-measured dry ingredients in a jar. Some common ingredients include:
- baking soda
- brown sugar
- sprinkles or chocolate chips
Reserve any toppings or mix-ins for the top of the jar so they can easily be removed for baking. Secure the lid and tie a pretty ribbon around the rim, and don’t forget to include the recipe, including the mixing and baking instructions, on the tag.
Here’s a kit that looks as pretty in the jar as it does when it’s finished (and it travels well, too)! Add assorted, colorful beads and a small skein of elastic cord to lidded jar to make a bracelet-making kit. Crafting a sweet keepsake from this kit will remind the maker of the people who care about her, every time she wears her bracelet.
