.......................................................For a New Baby
From Superkids by Jean Marzollo - Illustrations by Irene Trivas

Many of the activities on these pages may require adult supervision.
Be sure to tell a grown-up about what you're planning and ask for permission before getting started.


Washcloth Bib

Buy the cheapest washcloths you can find in the discount store, because they are nice and thin. Fold one side over 1 inch and sew it down, but leave the ends open. Thread a white shoelace through the hem. Sew some stitches through the shoelace in the middle to keep it from coming out in the wash.

Date-of-Birth Newspaper

Save the front page of your local newspaper on the date of the new baby's birth. Glue it by the corners to a piece of cardboard cut the same size. Wrap the whole thing with clear plastic and tape in the back. Attack a stick-on picture hanger to the back.
