my sister is coming to visit in about a month with her 2 year old kid. I want to make something but i havent made anything for a kid that young before so i dont really know what to make. I was thinking about making a toy but apparently her daughter has hundreds of toys so Im thinking it would be nicer to make something else. I'd appreciate any ideas you guys have.

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

What about making up a basket of things that would entertain her, and things you can do together.  Maybe a basket of puzzles and colour pages and crayons, or a travel case for the same.  Maybe make a puzzle that you and her can colour together?  But while she's there, maybe do something crafty with her - like making salt dough ornaments so she can take them home and have something to remember the experience with her auntie for the future.  Maybe make a soft fabric book, with words and pictures, to help her language skills, and add some plastic sleeves to add personal pictures too.  Maybe make bath fizzies, coloured foam, bubbles, or bath crayons or a cute bath scrubbie and have fun bath times together (I loved doing that when my neices and nephews were young, they had so much time with bubbles, smelly bath oils in fun shaped beads - the cheap ones are good - they release the oil, and then the bead expands in the water and becomes a slimy, gooey cool thing to play with, etc).  Maybe make some easy cookies or cupcakes, and let her decorate them.  Or things like placemats, picture frames, whatever, and let her decorate them - then maybe you can both have keepsakes of the visit too.


Two is a fun age - everything is new and exciting to them them.  Who knows, you could be training a future Craftster.

It might be a little late for ideas (you probably don't need anymore after all the cool ideas in the last post lol) but just in case, what about a Quiet Book? Those books made from material(or felt, if you don't sew) filled with activities for kids? This would be especially good if your sister was traveling a distance to see you as it would give your niece something to do on the trip home. There are tons of ideas for Quiet books online, ranging from geeky to cute to practical.
