Crafty Birthday Gift


Next time a birthday comes around, don't run to the toy department at the store.  Go to the craft section.  Get a small plastic organizer bin and fill it with craft supplies (pipe cleaners, popsicle sticks, brushes, etc.).  This gift is perfect for a boy or a girl.  Their mom will love a gift that involves being creative, plus it is already organized!  Who needs another Hannah Montana something or blow 'em up toy?  I would love my son to get a gift like this, and I know he would love to receive it!  Try it.

What was the last birthday present you bought for a kid (not yours)?  Does not have to be a crafty thing.  I  had never bought a crafty gift before this idea. :-)

  1. We used my baby girl's formula can..took off the label and spray painted it then decorated it with buttons and filled it with washable markers, colored pencils, crayons, glue, a pencil sharpener and of course paper. The little girl and her mom loved it!

  2. That is a great idea. I'm sure it made hours of fun for her and her mom.

  3. What a wonderful idea! Great for all ages- and honestly, something that you could easily keep on hand for last minute gifts! It would never go out of style like character gifts!

    I think the last gift we gave was Dr. Suess board books for a baby shower.

  4. Great idea. I'll have to use that next time. I just bought birthday gifts today for some kiddos....CLOTHES! Their mom asked for fall clothes, and I went crazy at the consignment shop. They'll get plenty of toys from everyone else. (and I know they can't afford a lot of new clothes for their two kiddos.)
