Kids Who Care - Making Blankets

At our monthly Kids Who Care meeting today, the children tied fleece blankets to donate to our local Birthright.  The Pro-life group at my church donated the fabric for the children.  My husband graciously volunteered to cut the fleece to size and then I snipped all the way around so that they were ready for the children at our meeting.  This prep work is necessary.  Don't wait to do it with all the children waiting to tie a blanket together. There are oodles of tutorials on how to make fleece-tied blankets, so I won't go into that.  A simple Google or YouTube search will give you all the information you need to get started.

We made 6 blankets and it took the children and moms less than an hour to get them all tied together and eat a cupcake.  It was a nice project that children of multiple ages could work on together.  I would highly recommend this activity.  We tried to make it somewhat prayerful and have the children pray over the blankets to ask God's blessing on the mother and child who would receive this blanket.

Team work makes it more fun!
We had a good sized crew on hand to help.
A "Welcome Baby" note was attached with pretty ribbon and they were ready for delivery.
God Bless!
