I know most of you probably do something like this or even something more elaborate. But I think it is always fun to share ideas. Here is what I do — I would love to hear about what you do! Cole is becoming a brother for the first time tomorrow so we made him a book. (I love making books for big events like moving, new siblings, etc.)
I demonstrated how to draw a baby in swaddling. The kids love drawing babies!
Here is the finished book!
Here is a sampling of the book:
Next, I make a little baby for a card:
I cut a round piece of tissue paper. This one is about 3 or 4 inches wide. I cut out a “baby.”
Fold one side of the circle over onto the “baby.” Glue.
Fold over the other side and glue.
Glue the little baby to a card and write something! (I added a little heart.) I like to make a big deal about the kindergartner becoming a big brother or sister. Cole’s new sibling is a little girl – he calls Sissy. So we all agreed – Sissy is one lucky baby to have sweet Cole as a big brother!!! So exciting!!
