If we pass court in a few weeks, Geoff and I will have the opportunity to give our children a small gift (approximately the size of a large ziploc bag or a wee bit bigger). We'll be including: small fleecy blankets; notepads; markers; stickers; tape recorders with our voices reading stories on them; and a small stuffie/doll in each of their bags.
Finally, I wanted to include a tiny toy for each of them. I was thinking of putting a few matchbox cars into our five-year old boy's gift (though I'm also very open to other ideas...hint hint); but I have no idea what on earth a three-year-old girl the size of a two-year-old girl might like. It's like greek to me!
Some of the ideas that have been generated so far (by folks on the yahoo forum I'm part of) include: necklaces/bracelets (where does one buy pint-sized bracelets?); sunglasses in goofy colours; little twisty-turny toys that transform from one shape to another.
Any other ideas? Thanks!!
P.S. Thank you all so much for your great suggestions!! Now, I feel like I have tons of good ideas to choose from, to fill the kids' little bags. Thank you very, very much!! Ruth.
