I'm trying to come up with ideas for Christmas gifts for my kids to make for family members that are fun but inexpensive since we're on a tight budget this year. I found the instructions for the bed candy cane ornaments today, so I think we'll try those.

Any other ideas????

Have you seen the ornaments that look like santa and you "squeeze" the cheeks to make his mouth open/ give you a kiss and it usually has a Hershey's kiss inside? Those are homemade, I always thought they were cute.

Also there are a ton of "craft kit" type things for Christmas on Oriental Trading Co.
