5. Block Print Kitchen Towels
You can never have too many kitchen towels, and because they get used every day the recipient of these will have a constant reminder of your child. Gather craft stamps and objects with fun textures and shapes (even sliced fruit or vegetables will work), dip the stamps in acrylic paint, and then press them onto flour sack towels. You’ll be amazed at how easy it is to create a professional looking pattern, or how creative your kids can be when you let them go wild.
