Welcome back to week #2 of it’s All About the Kids link up! Thank you so much for joining me, and I hope you link up a fun kid related post this week.
There were some great link ups last week! I loved the post from Dollie on how to Use Puzzles to Teach Geography and the post from Heather on how to have A Snow Day with shaving creme! Both amazing ideas and fun activities to do with your kids.
The link up that I randomly picked to feature today was The Blessings Jar from Heather at Upside Down Homeschooling.
Heather is going to keep a jar and write blessings on little of slips of paper as they come in through the year to stick in the jar. I love this idea, and we will definitely be doing it in our home as well. Thank you so much Heather for inspiring us to look and appreciate the GOOD things that happen! Please thank her for this great idea by stopping by her blog to say hi!
Today, I am sharing a toddler picture book I made for my nieces for Christmas.
My sweet niece, Charleigh, lives 14 hours away so we only get to see her a handful of times during the year. She is almost 18 months old, and I want her to know us. We send pictures and Facetime, but for Christmas I wanted to add a personal touch to her present. I thought of this cute little book. I simply got a few pictures developed and ran them through my laminator at home. I ended up going back and laminating them twice, so the pages are extra thick and protected from little girl drool. Once I had the pages laminated, I punched a hole in the top of each page and stuck them all on a keyring, so they can be flipped easily.
I loved it so much, I made my niece, Natalie, one as well. Even though we get to see her quite often, she loves her book because it is people that love her and she loves too. My brother and sister in law took it out to dinner with them the other night and helped pass the time while they were waiting for their food. How smart is that!?
If you read my DIY Ruffle Fabric Bag and Christmas Wrap Up Post, you got to see a few other Christmas presents I made this year. Did you make anything you gave away this holiday season?
Now, I am so excited to party it up with you all again! Please link up your newest All About the Kids post!
