You don't have to have a lot of money -- or time -- to help your kids make gifts for their friends and family: With simple materials (old socks, epsom salts, spare buttons, leftover yarn, paper cups, porcelain plates, a blank canvas) and a few basic art supplies -- like glitter, paint, glue, and markers -- you can teach your little ones about the joy of giving handmade gifts.

Whether they're into handprints or gluing, sewing or stacking, wrapping or baking, the ten projects in this guide are aimed at artists of all ages -- and they all result in sentimental, lasting gifts that grandparents, friends, and relatives will hold onto forever (no more throw away art projects, we promise).
