New siblings

Standard

The arrival of siblings is always overwhelming. Mom gets busy preparing everything for the baby and trying to include the other kids is not always and easy task. Here is an idea to get the kids involved in layette preparation.
One Mom from school is having twin girls so we organized a babyshower/playdate for the siblings and their friends. The request for each child was very simple; paint something the girls would like. The variety was extraordinary! From ages two to six everybody make their art, mixing colors and techniques, we ended up with a wide variety of styles. We took pictures from all of the drawings, set the images in an Illustrator file print them in a transfer sheets. After that we iron them into the onesies.
The result was beautiful!! The kids got very engaged with their little art project and it will definitely be something special when they see the girls using their design.

What you need:

Plain Onesies
Drawing canvas
Washable Colors Paints
Avery InkJet transfer sheets
Access to camara, computer and printer
Iron

Good luck and hope you will enjoy this as much as we did!

Thanks Macarena Reitze for the idea, organization and post.

About amaliabarragan

I am the mother of two daughters who left Spain longer than 2 years ago to live in San Francisco Bay Area, where the family was relocated. I am now living through that adaptation period which is the motherhood. Trying to keep in mind the essentials of my life before it and pass them on my little daughters. Those important things are outdoor activities, nature, biking, friends, traveling around the world, curiosity about everything, art, cooking. I am definitely enjoying this time with tons of activities and by sharing them I would love to help others.
