Here is one gift kids can really relate to and get excited about making.

4. Basic Sugar and Salt Body Scrub

Basic Sugar and Salt Body Scrub

This sweet recipe is a favorite among most children, and for obvious reason. It is fun to measure and taste test the ingredients. To distract little sweet tooths from the main ingredient, offer a fun variety of dried botanicals to choose from and customize each jar, such as rosemary, chamomile, rose buds and petals


5. Cleansing Facial Grains

Cleansing Facial Grains

Using a mortar and pestle instead of a grinder in this recipe is an excellent way for kids to involve their tactile senses in the process.
