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!
I love watching my boys grow up, but you can never get enough of a new baby. One of my favorite places to find special gifts for everyone from babies to big kids is the amazing sales at Zulily.com!
Congratulations to the beautiful family on sweet baby E’s arrival!
