  • I make stuffies of simple animals out of printed fleece and embroider the eyes and nose on. Safe, fun and soft for baby, It will also be something they can use for a while and is good for boy or girl.

  • I made a simple painting (from a book) for my nephew when he turned 1. It was a cute dragon, and it had counting sentences on it  (1-10) like: Can You count 1 dinosaur, 2 eyes, 3 spikes on the tail, 4 legs, and so on and so forth... I'll put a picture on it on my page and you can check it out :-)

    BTW..I'm danish so the sentances are in danish, also...

  • A homemade personalized book with all your pictures on it. I made one for my son and he makes us read it to him often. I just made it on my computer.

  • My friends makes us wonderful homemade presents:

    1. A painted box with Kate's name on it and these cute little baby markers inside. (Might try something other than markers, though - Messy!) You could paint it green and put his name on it!

    2. A hanger for Kate's art - it's a board painted pink (you could do green) that says "Kate's Art."

  • I also meant to say that the art hangar had clips screwed into the board allowing the art to hang! Kate LOVES to show off her artwork!

  • Try a no sew blanket. With winter coming it would be perfect. My kids still love theirs. Check my blog for instructions.

  • Make a sound board. Take a piece of plywood or cloth and attach 26 items or pictures representing each letter of the alphabet.
