tutorial for a crinkle square at Joy's Hope I thought it would be a great opportunity to include them in the preparation for baby J. (It's a boy, by the way, so Wimpherzina is OUT.)
I have a huge bolt of muslin fabric that I got for 5 dollars at a garage sale, an old ubersoft changing pad that I was able to cut up for the other side of the square, cellophane wrapping paper for the crinkly noise, and lots of random ribbon. The only thing I had to buy was the package of fabric markers so the girls could decorate their squares. (Crayola makes a pretty reasonably priced package of those though, and I have a feeling I'll be able to put them to another good use one of these days.)
I'm thinking though that this may be one of those toys that is used with supervision only. It seems like maybe the cellophane in the fabric makes it a bit of a suffocation risk? I don't know...would it make you nervous?
We have three more months until baby J will likely show up. Do you have any suggestions for other fun things I can do with the girls to involve them in the anticipation?
