A bit of Canadiana for you – Sharon, Lois, and Bram have the greatest kids’ albums – stuff you can totally get into as a parent, and if not, we’ll you didn’t hear it here. But really, please check them out. One of my favo(u)rites is actually a popular song from the 1940s, “A – You’re Adorable.”
You can listen, while you check out this sweet project we did for a baby shower last month. Since this was my friend Nicola’s second baby, we wanted a simple event, but of course, there had to be a craft project!
For baby E’s sister’s shower, we decorated onesies. For baby E, I gathered letter shapes, and we created an eclectic alphabet to decorate the room the sisters will share.
I loved seeing all the creative ideas, including some creations by the under-three set.
Here are some of the techniques we used:
- Paint – we discovered some of our friends had a lot of talent!
- Yarn – wrapping a letter took a little patience but turned out charming. I had fun with the multicolor yarn.
- Scrapbook paper – you can paint the sides first; then add a coordinating paper. So many possible variations with this!
- Craft tape – I couldn’t resist this cute tape with bicycles, since our friends are avid cyclists.
Here are some close-ups of the same letters I made before the party:
And here is our finished alphabet!
Creating the art made for a fun and relaxing afternoon!
Congratulations to the beautiful family on sweet baby E’s arrival!
