Handmade holiday

Crafty student shares her secrets to creating unique gifts

by Katie Lyness

For the holidays, kids want to give gifts but often don't know what to get. So they make things. That is what I like to do when it is time to give a gift and I'm not sure what to give. Giving a handmade gift to someone is a good way to show the person you care a lot about them because you spent part of your life doing something nice for them. When you take time and effort to make something for someone they appreciate it much more because you're not just using your money on them. (Not that there's anything wrong with just spending money.) There are lots of different kinds of gifts I like to make.
