Handcrafting gifts gives children a wonderful sense of heartfelt pride in the precious gifts they share. Enjoy special time with your kiddos while making herbal gifts to share with all the important people in your child’s life such as grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends, and teachers!
Crafting with herbs is educational too! These special activities give children the opportunity to work with and experience herbs in a relatable, visceral way helping them learn about the botanicals.
Many of these crafts can be made by older children without a lot of adult assistance while younger kids will need guidance and help.
