This week I've found a few things I'd like to do this summer. I don't know that I'll actually get around to all of these (there are plenty of other things on my to-do wishlist), but it's nice to have some ideas on hand.
First is the sweet little facebook Lier put together for her daughters over on ikat bag
. She snapped photos of her girls expressing different emotions and then put them together in these handy little flip books. I think this would be a perfect project for a certain little toddler in our house :)
I'm also itching to get at least a few things made for our little sweet pea before she arrives. This little reversible bonnet on Prudent Baby
seems like a cuter alternative to the simple beanie (although the beanies are quick and easy!).
I may also be tempted to make one of these swaddle blankets (also from Prudent Baby
). I think we have a couple that we saved but it would be nice to have one in a fabric pattern of my choice! And if you've never used one of these I love them for newborns--it keeps them all snuggled up at night and (sometimes) helps them sleep better!
And lastly, in trying to think of some things to keep Skyler occupied this summer, I think the idea of keeping a science observation journal is brilliant! Marie from Make and Takes
tells the story of how she started one with her son--this would be a perfect summer learning experience.
How about you? What are your favorite summer activities/crafts? Have any favorite (and easy) handmade baby goodies?
