Kristen @ Make the Best of Everything {Christmas Break Guest}

Hello! My name is Kristen and I blog at Make the best of everything! I have such an amazing time sharing recipes and homemade gift from my home in Iowa. Blogging has connected me with so many people. I just love it!

My blog slogan is that ” The Happiest people make the best of everything!”. I find this to be a true statement in more then one way! My blog is known for my ” Homemade Childrens gifts.”

Today, I am going to share some of my most popular gifts. I LOVE making homemade gifts for all the special kids in my life. I have 5 nephews, 1 niece, A goddaughter, a handful of second cousins and a 1 year old son! If possible, I like to give them Homemade gifts that help them learn! Here are five of my favorite gifts I have made them!  

1) Madison’s Play Library – Madison is my cousin’s daughter. I wanted to give her a present to help her create her own ” Play Library” using her own book collection! This gift includes “Old Fashion” Library check out cards, A date stamp, book labels and a library card. I gifted all of these items in a decorated box. Find out more details on this gift here. šŸ™‚

2) Homemade Detective Kit – This Homemade detective kit was one of my first blog posts ever. I made this Homemade detective kit for my nephew Adam for his birthday. This kit includes items such as fingerprint cards, specimen swabs and a crime solving journal. My sister in law said that Adam and one of his brothers play with this kit quite often.


3) Audrey’s Play Pizzeria I hand sewed this felt play pizzeria for my niece Audrey, the weeks I was awaiting the arrival of my son. I included everything Audrey needs in order to run her own pizzeria! I found ” Guest Checks” at Wal mart so she can take orders and also included a menu. Please check out Audrey’s Play Pizzeria and find out details on how I made this!


4) Katelyn’s Alphabet Soup I made this felt alphabet soup for my goddaughter Katelyn! I thought that this would be a cute way for Katelyn to learn her letters! Find out how to make felt alphabet soup here.


5) Audrey’s Veterinarian Kit – I made my niece Audrey a Homemade Veterinarian Kit. All of the items included in this gift are either crafted or purchased from the dollar store. I hope you enjoy this as much as I enjoyed making this for her! get more details on this here.
