Here’s another amazing idea from my friend Sarah. Instead of spending money on more toys for her girls’ friends on their birthdays she decided to get creative.
She ordered several different crafts from Oriental Trading Company and packaged them together in a Ziploc bag. They are really cheap and usually come in quantities of 12. They are individually wrapped and come with step by step directions. She tries to get a craft for each month and labels them Crafts for All Seasons. It was adorable and Ashlyn loved it! She has all her completed crafts on her bookshelf for all to see.
