Here is another cute gift idea that came to me last night.
One clean pillowcase or tea towel neatly turned into an apron (Sewing even I can do by hand )
Source a couple of old tin pie pans, measuring cups and a couple wooden spoons (new from the dollar store or so much better, ancient from a Second Hand Junk shop) all cleaned up and ready to go and a little bag of potting soil. Voila! A mud pie kit perfect to gift for a summer birthday party for boys or girls. We gifted ours in this cute blue pail from the dollar store.
Total cost of the gift $6
