Inspiration Board : hostess ('kids) gift

Posted by



I just put together this basket with all supplies needed to make several cornhusk dolls. I will bring it to my friends' house for her kids (and me !) to spend many hours crafting with. But it would make a wonderful present to bring to a Thanksgiving gathering. After all what's a better gift for  a hostess than knowing that her kids will be happily occupied, while she tends to her guest. Find the instructions for the dolls in our November issue or here, bring several dried cornhusks, felt in various colors, black yarn for hair and some twine .. successful party guaranteed.

  • Cool Gift basket! Another fun activity I found on line is growing a pet TickleMe Plant from seeds and watching how the leaves fold together when you Tickle It. My kids love TickleMe Plants.
