Christmas ideas
Our village is collecting parcels for children in hospital during Christmas Day.

I am okay with ages 1,2,3, 4,5,6, and 13-18

My problem is 7-13 for both boys and girls. I have until 7th December to complete.

So far knitted jumper for 1 2 year olds 3,4, quilt pirates and fairies 5 6 a toy pirate ship and a doll dressing.
13-18 quilts in bright colours black or white background.

Thought about a bag full of colouring pens etc for girls in 7-13 but no idea at all for boys which is quilted. Only intend to give one set presents purchased rest home made.

Thank you for your help I don't want to ask locally as I want the gifts to be anonymous to local villagers.

How about pillowcases in funky prints for the teens, both boys and girls. I am doing the coin purses with a gift cards for the guys I don't know what to do for.

How about small tote bags for them - or any size actually. You could also make fleece toboggans.
We are making these for Occupational Christmas Child (if anyone has a yard of any kind of fabric, we would appreciate it.)

Seems like most kids have cell phones and/or ipad type devices. So, maybe bags/covers for those?

Tote bags full of legos??

Most 7-13 year old girls and boys would be interested in a creative gift. The colored pens would be perfect for both, and could be used for school projects also! (And who knows, you may just inspire the next Rembrandt...)

A pretty covered journal. My GD age 10 loves to write and draw so having a special book to do that in is perfect.

I made these bags for my 8 & 10 year old great nephews. They loved them. Great for their small Gameboys or legos. They stay on while they skateboard. http://www.sewmamasew.com/2012/04/fa...-bag-tutorial/

Thanks. For all the ideas I did think of pens but thought they would be too sissy for boys.when you know the child it is much easier than random bodies.

Boys of all ages, and a lot of girls love nerf guns. Small Lego kits, usually go over pretty well too. How about a tye dye kit with a couple of white shirts for the girls. The coverd journal idea is awesome if you want to kick it up add a set of colored gel pens. There are also book/kits you can buy on folding paper airplanes or origami those are really cool too.
