Kid’s (Small) Messenger Bag When my two-year-old son decides he wants to go somewhere he picks up my purse, puts it over his shoulder, and heads for the door. As cute as that is, Daddy thought a cool boyish bag should be made for him as soon as possible! So I came up with this messenger bag that’s toddler sized. It also makes a nice smaller sized bag for an adult. For my son’s, I used pirate, treasure map and fish fabrics for the insides of the bag and pockets. The main fabric is a heavy weight brown canvas.

Also like a real egg you have to break the shell to get at what’s inside. I like things you have to destroy to open.

Bunny Finger Puppets Besides being adorable, these little puppets are a snap to make. You could make the whole set of five (or more) in one evening with time to spare.
