1. Child’s Felt Wallet

When your kids are very young, it’s not likely that you are going to give them their own wallet. It’s too easy for them to accidentally lose it when they go to the store. However, as they get older, it might be good to get them used to carrying a wallet like a grown up. This next DIY is a very simple craft in making a wallet out of felt. All you need is a piece of colored felt, thread, and a button. Some free patterns online also make felt wallets a bit more complex, using hot glue to add pockets.

If you grew up learning how to sew,  you probably want to pass down that skill to your own children. Once your kids are around the age of eight or nine, they should be able to handle making one of these wallets on their own, with adult supervision. This could be a great project for you to introduce hand sewing to your kids so that they get used to the process.  Since this is so quick and easy to make, it is instant gratification that will make them feel proud of making something.
