Child-drawn Baby Blanket

I have one month until our new baby arrives.  I've been trying to prepare my boys for her as much as I can.  I had a plain muslin blanket in a pack I had purchased, so I thought it would be perfect to let the boys design a blanket for her.  It's meaningful for them and for me....and even for the baby once she's a little older.
It's an easy, fun project that any child would love to try out.
I got out my Tulip fabric markers for my 5-year-old son to use.
I put paper underneath the blanket to make sure it wouldn't leak through.  (It's a really thin blanket.)  Then I taped the blanket down the best that I could.  This particular fabric stretches and shifts a lot, so it's a little harder to draw on.
 He did fine with the markers, though.  He drew our family and then I helped him darken it in a little more once he was all done.
 His art always makes me happy and it's nice that fabric markers are even easy enough for a 5-year-old to use.
 He was pretty proud of his finished work.

I think it'll be our favorite blanket to wrap her in.

oh wow what a really precious idea. I am afraid I would be one of those mothers that would wrap baby in it once and put it away for her when she is much older

Such a cute idea... and those thin blankets are AMAZING! We got the 4-pack as well. My daughter (1year old) LOVES them. they are the item she is most attached to.

What a wonderful idea! I'm going to pin this to use when we are ready to have #3. Would even be a great gift idea for new nieces or nephews.

This is such a great idea! I love muslin blankets and this makes a cute keepsake out of the plain ones. My youngest just turned 2 and I still want to do this!
