{Chalkboard Frame} Gifts That Kids Can Make

I’m always in search of  gifts that kids can make.

Whether it’s  DIY gifts that kids can make or handmade gifts for Mother’s Day, there is nothing quite like receiving a gift from a child that is made just for you.  For this handmade gift, we decided to make something that we can use and change for many years to come.

My four-year-old loves to draw, so this was the perfect activity for her. She’s started making faces, drawing clothes on people, and writing small words.  This  handmade gift challenged all of her new skills and truly melted my heart – can you see the little heart in the top right hand corner of the frame?  {{precious}}
