Simple gift ideas that are easy for small hands to make.

Use a clean can without sharp edges. Children can glue yarn, fabric scraps and more on. Paint over with a watered down white craft glue.
Father will love this. Get a photo of the child blown up. The child can glue the photo on to a heavy cardboard backing. With adult assistance they can cut the photo into puzzle pieces. Put into a decorated box titled “I Love You to Pieces”
Attach clean cans without sharp edges with masking tape. Various sizes work best. Cans be decorated with contact paper or colored tape.
