15 Holiday Gifts to Make for Your Toddler

Feeling crafty? Looking to save some money? Or do you just want to avoid the shopping malls this holiday season? I’m saying yes to all three myself, so decided to put together a list of easy and fun gifts to make for the little ones in our lives. Some require basic sewing skills but many are no-sew. All are gifts that any toddler would love to find under the Christmas tree.

Here are 15 gifts to whip up this holiday:
