This year since the kids are waking, talking, whacking each other in the head, and peeing on the potty - I decided to focus the gift on them this time. I didn't just want to get another toy for them not to play with.... so I decided to go the arts and crafts route. I love doing crafts when I babysit, but since the kids are young - they don't have much of a stash. So I bought a box, added some finger paints, a paint brush, a couple pens and some stickers to get the stash started.
Oh yeah, I made a mini apron too! I used a fabric napkin from Khols! A whopping$ 1.99! I've never been good at sewing - and this is my first real "project." It was fairly simple and I did it all by myself! Haha . Actually, I had my mom add some of the by-hand finishing touches ;-)
Weee! I know this sounds corny - but I'm so excited I made this!
If you are interested in making your own Google "Dish towel apron for kids." I didn't use any particular pattern... I just looked at a couple to get ideas then did it how I wanted ;-)
