You see, the book is about a grandmother who sews blankets for all of her grandchildren and great grandchildren. Her grandchildren collect the scraps and…I’m not going to give it away, but they help their mother create a special surprise for their grandmother! This book is about the love of family, and expressing that love through sewing. It really spoke to my heart. My children love the book. Once I read it I knew I didn’t want to just do a simple book giveaway, but I wanted to create a project that children can do with their Moms or Grandmas. So I came up with this:
My kiddos worked on these with their grandma, and now they have a memory that will last forever. The wonderful thing about rice sacks is when you heat them up they are warm and feel like a hug. They are great for kiddos who like to crawl out of bed in the middle of the night for the warmth of Mom and Dad’s bed!
Oh how my babies love them!
