My amazing neighbor throws this incredible Easter party every year in the neighborhood park. Seriously, it is all-out – gorgeously decorated, so fun for the kids, and there is even a surprise appearance by the Easter Bunny himself. It is remarkable.
She asks that guests bring a gift donation for children at Star of Hope. Since I have been on a craft-supply binge lately, I thought I’d put together a few little craft-packages. I think something like this would also be a nice care package for children in a hospital, or even for guests at a kids’ party. Each just contains a coloring book, a rub-away drawing tablet, and a box of crayons. Nothing fancy. I later thought I could have added stickers for a nice touch. I really liked this donation/cause because it got me thinking of other kids in need, and contemplating other ways to help.
Last week I asked if anyone had any safe craft ideas for young toddlers and I got some great feedback! I ran out and got several of the “My First Crayola” products, sidewalk chalk, etc. However, I think Baby O isn’t quite ready for crafts…She still wants to eat all of the crayons and markers! My Mother-in-Law had the great idea of having her “paint” with icing…So, we tried that out and she was quite enthralled…
This craft project was a success! And the finished product is going in her Daddy’s lunch tomorrow…what a surprise! Hope you’re having a great week & thank you for reading!
