What boy does not like adventure and when I think of adventure, I think of Indiana Jones. Even the 40 something year old boys in my family love it. How about an Indiana Jones Bullwhip?
one which is made of fabric and one which is made of duct tape?!! Maybe you could find a brown fedora (Indiana Jones) style hat at a thrift store to go with the bullwhip.
You could go a little more 21st century and go with a marshmallow gun, I can't tell you how easy these are and you could either leave them plain or paint them, a bag of mini marshmallows and you are ready to go. This one has a tutorial for a face shield to go with the gun.tutorial on how to make a rubberband gun.
Alright, here is a nice quiet gift, a car mat with roads to run little cars on. It is made of felt, and super simple to make. You could bundle it with some little cars and make any little boy happy. The tutorial is in spanish or probably Portuguese but just the pics are enough to get you going.
Here is a gift to alleviate the winter cabin fever episodes, an indoor swing!! Yes, it is possible and cost little to make. Check it out.
And once they get going how about some homemade lollipops? These are really easy and made from hard candies, can you say, recycle that Halloween candy?
Of course after all that shooting, playing, swinging and candy they will need a bath. This soap is sure to send them running for the tub. Here we have some Batman soap and this one is my fave... goldfish in a bag soap!!! Too cute.
what did I tell you , cute huh?
And from the tub to bedtime, I always have a hard time finding pajama pants that I like for my kids. With this super easy tutorial you can make them their pj's yourself. This is an important one in my family. My mom started a tradition when I was little of giving us a new pajama on Christmas Eve and my kids look forward to their new jammies every year. There is nothing like going to sleep in new pajamas on a night when there is so much magic.
