I’m all about homemade gifts for my family and friends. For me, I feel that my kids have been given so many toys by friends and family members, that it would mean more for me to do things that are homemade. DIY projects have hit many websites because people are finding value in crafting things for those they love. If you want to give gifts that stand out, making them yourself is a great way to do that. Here are a few great gift ideas for love you can make for your child to show them how much you care for them.

1. Super Hero Sucker

Choose your child’s favorite suckers and turn them into superheroes that he can fly around the house. Use different colored construction paper to make capes to attach to the suckers. Use a marker to draw faces on the sucker wrappers. You can use construction paper to make a mask to wrap around the sucker instead of drawing eyes. Follow the link below for more great super hero sucker ideas.
