My plan is to buy him a few things but also to make a couple of unique presents.
I am totally inspired by these I Spy Robot Bags. I bought some of the things to make my own today. I need to hit the Hobby Lobby for the rest tomorrow. Stay tuned for a tutorial on these guys.
The other idea I came across was a clothing book. The idea is to use old clothing to create a book for toddlers to practice buttons, zippers, snaps, or anything else you can think of that is commonly found on clothing. Pretty cool idea huh?
If your interested in how I found these ideas, I perused Etsy for the robot and stumbled on the clothing book via Pinterest.
As for the purchased presents, I have gotten him a Shake-n-Go Mater for his racetrack. I also want to get him a slide. He is about at that age where a slide is just about the coolest thing ever. Plus, I can move it outside in the spring and renew his interest in it.
What have you gotten your two year old's for their birthdays? Do you often make gifts for your children or do you stick with the store bought items?
