Happy December! Is it just me or does your Christmas shopping list double once you have a kid? Our adults-only list has suddenly grown to include entire families, friends' babies, godchildren, and furbabies. I was trying to think of some fun stocking-stuffer-type trinkets to tie to gift cards, and came up with this idea as I was styling a photo for one of our Christmas stamps. (I'm 100% sure someone else has probably done this, but I made you a free printable to make it easier!)
Here it is :: a mini coloring kit!
- A cotton muslin bag (mine is 3" x 4")
- A 4-pack of crayons (or mini colored pencils)
- A mini coloring sheet (download here then print on white paper and cut in half)
- Optional: a mini candy cane or our Santa's Snail Mail stamp to make the bag more festive (don't forget the ink pad!)
There are so many fun things you can fit in these things—baby sunglasses, a whistle, candy, erasers, jewelry, gift cards—why not skip the paper wrapping altogether and gift your tiny items in a cute, reusable bag!
