DD will be turning one in a few weeks <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/bigeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="bigeyes"> as well as several of her friends.<br><br>
I belong to two moms groups with babies that are within 2 months of age, so we will be having two large group birthdays.<br><br>
I would like to make or buy something small for each of these children (about 10 of them), but I'm not sure what is good for a 1 year old.<br><br>
For those with children 1+, what little gifts did you find useful?

I know that I could always use a sippy cup. It would have been awesome to get a sippy cup in cute colors, personalized with one of my kid's names and some little doodles or something. You could package it up with a little personalized plastic container with some Cheerios or something, and call it a birthday on the go! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/upsidedown.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="upsidedown">

Get them some <span><b>playsilks</b></span> from <a href="http://www.supersilks.com" target="_blank">www.supersilks.com</a><br><br>
There aren't a lot in stock, but they are open for custom orders. Hankie sized are $15 and Bandana sized at $25 I think. You could give 1 or 2 to each child. I know they do custom dying too, so if you didn't want ot have to worry, you could get them in sets of 6 all the same color.<br><br>
Good luck!

wow, thats a lot of kids. what is your budget? I am guessing $5 or less per child.<br><br>
brightly colored wiffle balls are always a hit. I think you can get a four pack for around $2 at discount stores.<br><br>
you can make playsilks for about $4 each from dharma company with koolaid dye. I don't know that most parents would know what to do with them.<br><br>
everyone loves bubbles.<br><br>
do you knit or crotchet or anything. you can make little hats with yarn, or sew pajama bottoms.<br><br>
hooded towels are easy to make but can get expensive. you fold a wash cloth in half and sew one shot end closed. then open the unsewn short end and ceter it on one of the long edges of the towel washcloth center an towel center matching. slightly overlap edges and zig zag on. washcloth makes the hood, towel wraps around body. done. if you have an embrodery machine you can put thier name on it.<br><br>
washable crayons and a coloring book. or color magic stuff is fun for this age group.<br><br>
and I don;t know what is available in your area but perhaps a one day pass to the zoo, baby gym, or soemthing like that.
