I’m a nursery leader in my church over sweet kiddos ages 18 months to 3 years. As Mother’s Day is quickly approaching, I’ve been thinking of special gifts that they could make and give to their moms.
When I saw this fun idea for a pocket book on Simply Kierste I knew it was just the thing. I changed it up a bit so it’s more tailored to wee ones. 🙂
- Fold your paper bag in half with the bottom of the sack on the inside right.
- Print your front tag and inside questionnaires on white paper or cardstock.
- Punch out the front tag with the 2″ circle punch.
- Glue your front tag to a scalloped cardstock backing and then onto the front of your bag
- Glue your questionnaire to the inside right panel
- Embellish with buttons, bakers, twine, ribbon, rhinestones, etc
- Punch a hole on the right side (I used a fun heart punch) and tie closed with twine or jute.
If you take a peek inside the book, there’s a cute little pocket where I decided to tuck a little hand print of each of the kids and a picture that they colored. It’d also be fun to include a photo of them. My three year old son was the guinea pig for this project, and he came up with some pretty funny responses to the questions. I can’t wait to see what the other kids say this Sunday when we put these together.
I just love sweet things like this that help me remember the different stages that my kids are in. I especially treasure their little drawings (sometimes scribbles) and hand prints, because they will not be little for long.
I can’t wait to get some extra snuggles in this Sunday with the sweet kiddos who made me a mom.
