If you've just had a baby and have older children, it's always handy to have a few activities planned to keep them busy while you care for bubs.
One of the things I organised came from an idea I saw for baby showers - onesie designing! All you need is a few plain light coloured onesies and some fabric markers. We added a few stencils to the mix as well.
Here is what my children and their Grandma came up with (aged 4, 7 & 13) for their new baby brother.
Unique, custom clothing, complete with spelling mistakes, made with more love than anything you'll find in the shops. They also make a great keepsake to showcase your children's awesome design skills
I love that it's a cheap, technology free activity, you can lay on the couch while your kids are busy and the look on their faces when they see their baby brother wearing the top they made for him is super cute
What ideas and activities have you done with your children after baby arrives?
