It's no secret that I am a BIG fan of Celebrate the Boy month hosted by MADE and Made by Rae. You can see some of the things I have made using tutorials from Celebrate the Boy here, here and here.
When my littlest monster was invited to a birthday party last week I new just the gift to make...the Fort building Kit. I found the idea during Celebrate the Boy month over at Saltwater Kids.
I love this idea for a gift (thanks Saltwater Kids!). It's fun, personalized and encourages imaginative play! What's not to love?! I found most of the items at the $ store, except for the twin flat sheets. I bought those new at a department store (I had a great coupon!). I used an old t-shirt of my husband's for the ties on the sheets. I used colored denim for the bag. And, of course, I just had to use my Silhouette to personalize the gift. The birthday boy LOVES hockey so I put a hockey player on the front of the bag. I also put his name on the flashlight. Ya know, in case his brother tries to say it's his ;).
The party was at a Mavericks (a local CHL hockey team) game. We were asked to wear orange to help support the team. Adam (aka littlest monster) didn't have an orange shirt so I bought a new one and added a little something to it (I used my Silhouette, of course).
The party was a lot of fun & to make it even better the Mavericks won...whoo hoo!!! If you live in the Kansas City area and haven't been to a game yet, you really should go. They are in the 2nd round of playoffs so the games are sure to be good.
