Homemade Birthday Sign for Children

Kidoodle: Flag Your Love

Buying a present for a one-year-old always seems a tad impersonal since the tot hardly acknowledges the gift. Give him something made with love that he can save throughout the years. It will keep mama from having to make a tough choice at the toy shop while keeping a few dollars in her pocket.

To see how to make this simple sign to hang in the nursery or play room,

.

Supplies for the project:

  • Old cereal boxes or manila folders
  • Glue
  • Ribbon
  • Hole puncher
  • Pencil or pen
  • Glitter
  • Ruler or straight edge
  • Newspaper
  • A traceable circular object like a can
  • Bright construction paper

Directions

  • Use a ruler to draw a few flags on the back of the cereal boxes.
  • Cut some newspaper in the same shape but about an inch bigger all the way around.
  • Glue the newspaper to one side of the flag. Fold the edges over and glue them to the back for the triangle.
  • Trace circles on the bright colored construction paper and cut them out.
  • Glue the circle onto the newspaper side of the flag.
  • Draw a letter on the circle and fill it with glue.
  • Sprinkle the glitter on the glue, shake it off and allow it to dry.
  • Once dry, punch two holes in the top of the flags.
  • Run the ribbon through the tops of the flags.
  • Put it in a cute package and give it to the birthday boy!

I have to say I don't understand the flag/pennant craze in baby and kid rooms. It's just not my style, I guess.

My friend has a son named Thijs and you pronounce it "Tice" like Anonymous said. And I believe it's Dutch - like his dad. He is ADORABLE and just turned one so he's getting this in his bag of goodies.
