Penguins and Popsicles

My Great Nephew's CHRISTmas gift
He is 2 this year so Auntie Sara created...
Penguins and Popsicles
A personalized gift containing...
Book
Memory Game
Vinyl decorations
Popsicles Freezer Accessory


Here is a view of the Popsicle memory game fronts...


Here is a look at the flip side
1-5
Cooper
and Penguin friends
I made it this way so they have lots of options when playing the game with him.
All the pieces fit nicely into a salvaged Mayo container.
I used wooden spoons to hopefully make it easier to turn the pieces remember he is 2.


And the book I printed off and created for him.  It is so darn cute, I continue to amaze myself at times.


This gift took me literally days to create.  A little here and there and lots of love and prayers.  Lots of prayers for patience.   I need to count how many google eyes I used they were about to drive me CRAZY.
That is another reason I love creating my own gifts instead of going out into the crazy world of retail and pick out a meaningless toy that in two days will probably be lost or broken and not remembered.
It is giving from the heart that makes this season beautifully special for me.


I made it my own and personalized it for Cooper.


Hope you are inspired to go get creative on some of your gifts this year.

25 days of CHRISTmas day one you can find on my FACEBOOK post for today
Happy Stamp Day.  God Bless.
