"The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul. No matter our talents, education, backgrounds, or abilities, we each have an inherent wish to create something that did not exist before." President Dieter F. Uchtdorf

Baby Shower gift idea using bean bags

Here are a couple of gifts I put together for a baby shower I have coming up.  It's a double baby shower for 2 of my friends, one is having a boy the other a girl.


I made bean bags for each of them and included these great bean bag games to go with them.  Sometimes it is a nice surprise to get something other then clothes and diapers.

Love this idea! Bean bags are also really helpful for propping tiny ones in car seats or swings if they fall down in the seat! Thanks for the link to the games!

This is such a fabulous idea! Bean bags are also wonderful for propping teensy ones in car seats or swings if they tend to slide "down," the seat! Double uses, perfect! These games are super cute too! Thanks!

These are too cute! And they are homemade. I think it means so much when people take time to actually make a gift.

I would love to make these for a fundraiser at my school for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society! The link for the beanbag games no longer exists though. Can you let me know some of the game ideas you included?

I am throwing a Carnival themed birthday party for my son who will be one! I have already got the beanbags made but I'd love to see the games! The link is not working, is there any way I could get my hands on your hard work?!

What a beautiful gift!
