Toddler Craft to Welcome Baby
To combine efforts I decided Chiquita could help me make some decor for baby's room. The main theme of his nursery is the sky, both night and day. I picked up a big bunch of night sky craft foam shapes at a yard sale this summer. I know we'd use it sometime, and this was perfect. I just punched two holes in each piece for her to thread the yarn through. I couldn't find my plastic yarn needle, but my favorite trick to make threading easier is to just wrap a piece of duct tape around the end of the yarn to create a kind of needle.
She had a lot of fun doing it and talking about how much baby brother was going to like it. I tried to encourage her to create a pattern, but she was more excited about the blue stars than the others so it took a little convincing to get her to vary colors and stars and crescent moons.
