I love giving gifts. Much to my husband’s chagrin, my generous spirit has often outweighed my budget. A long time ago, long before I was married and had kids of my own, I started giving gifts to all the children in my life. It started with just my nieces and nephews, and then, as a few of my friends started having children, the tradition started to spread. Before I knew it, the list was very, very long. This year I finally had to face the hard truth: it is simply too expensive to buy and send gifts to 30+ kids each year.
But I couldn’t bear the thought of doing nothing.
I decided to get crafty.
And happily for me I a.) had a giant bucket of crayons and b.) just happened to have a star-shaped silicone mold leftover from a baby shower I threw 4 years ago. Because the only thing better than really awesome crafts are really awesome crafts that don’t require a trip to the craft store!
