I'll read back in this thread in the next few days but here's what I have and I need some ideas.
For all three kids: A play tent; my mil bought the fabric and pattern. A wood block set using scrap wood we have.
My 6 yo son: Some basic art supplies, a notebook and maybe a few small child sized tools.
My 4yo daughter: No clue
My 2 yo daughter: A simple doll bed (more scrap wood) , some home made doll clothing and a pouch for her dolls.
For my husband's family we have his Brother's family which includes his wife and two daughters. They like family oriented activities; games, picnics etc. A limit of 50.00 was imposed.
So I bought a cute little family sign for 4.00 which I will sand and paint tomorrow. We are going to make this http://www.uniqueprojects.com/projec...ack.htm?page=3
and some mix in a jars like hot cocoa and some desert. Except for the sign the rest is all made from stuff we already have. I;d like to add something else to it for a family night theme and I need ideas.
