DIY Project: Baby’s First Alphabet Book

Back to School themed baby shower Arts and Crafts Table

What children’s library would be complete without an Alphabet book?

Since this was going to be Donna’s third child, it seemed a bit foolish to ask guests to give advice to the mother-to-be.  But, I still wanted an activity that served as a guest book and special keepsake from the guests.  While surfing the web for shower ideas, I came across Tied With A Bow who featured a Baby’s First Alphabet Book for a shower she co-hosted.  I thought, “How perfect!”.  I knew Donna would love it for her daycare and the baby and Jon would truly appreciate it being the artistic guy that he is.  As a matter of fact, he’s the one that handles all the arts and crafts at the daycare.

The concept is so simple and the work so easy.

Both young and old were eager to participate in this special activity for the baby.  By the end of the shower we had a complete alphabet book!
