Gifts Kids Can Make: Hand Warmers

This year I'm continuing on the tradition of having my kids make homemade gifts for each other for Christmas.  You can see some past ideas HERE.  

Since my 13 month old isn't really old enough to make anything on his own I helped him out a little this year :) When everyone is giving their homemade gifts to each other on Christmas morning I thought it would be nice if he had a little something to give too so I made some simple hand warmers that he could give to his older brother and sister.

Each cozy hand warmer is made out of fleece and filled with rice.   They're the perfect size to fit in your hand.

To warm them up simply place them in the microwave for a few seconds and then stick them in your coat pockets to warm up your hands when playing in the snow.

Stay tuned for some more homemade Christmas gifts that kids can make . . .


  1. Having kids MAKE each other gifts is such a wonderful idea! I'm going to do it! :)

  2. Oooh how simple indeed. And they do look cozy. We could do with some of these right now.

  3. It'll be useful... It's so cold in Paris and London! Thanks for sharing ;) ( sayin' Hi from Sew much ado linky )

  4. Very cool! I love hand warmers, or even bigger ones I can use on sore muscles or to warm the foot of my bed at night. :-) I just made a few pairs of pocket-sized ones recently for my husband and I, but I made them out of a soft flannel and filled them with whole kernel corn instead.

  5. That is such a sweet little present! Thanks so much for sharing on craft schooling Sunday, great to see you!
