ok we both did......it's our niece's little girl.......she will be 4...........jeepers not enough time to make something and she has everything i mean everything.........

not sure if we will go with the weather mess but it's a good reason to get out and get some yummy cake..lmbo.......

i am clueless on what to get her and fast................can't get to our garage to make something for her room in wood......no time and no snow melting anytime soon.........

throw some ideas at me..........

and u know i like different off the wall ideas so hit me with your best quirky idea.....LMBO.......

one idea i got rolling around in my brain..is a bubble basket........bubbles in a cutesie basket with a hand mit and and bath towel hoodie thing if i can make it in time.........but this seems boring.......

the mother just called me and said i know u will floor us like u always do in your ideas/gifts........ Tongue

came up with doing a wreath.......for her room.......i'll use the styrofoam heart shapes and attach ribbons and lace with dangles from the top in her name..........then i mite make another one to go with it out of some old children's books i got by making some paper flowers and cones with them then attaching them to the wreath with some little toys to go along with the story...........

Those sound fantastic Tee.

Throwing some other ideas at you....a treasure box (just decorate any old box) for her to store some special things in, a jewellery hanger...you can make these easily enough...I had a pink heart shaped one my aunt made me you can find the pattern on-line, or a laundry basket (if you have time) just take some heavy duty wire to make a hook to hang on a door know and attach some cute material, or (again if you have time) a special reading pillow...you know desk like on one side but pillow soft on the other to rest on her legs...she could use this to color or read stories, etc.

Okay, I'm done...4 year old girls are kind of hard for me.

When I'm stuck on what to get someone.. Can't go wrong with cash.. just do a 1.00 for each year of the childs age.

Hey Jo, my sister got our niece a little purse and wallet for her 4th birthday, with some fun money in it and she threw in some kid friendly lipglosses. My other sister said she absolutely LOVED it. So that's probably a very good idea.
