Summer is almost here. Spring has gone by with the blink of an eye and it’s almost time for school to be out, outdoor cookouts, swimming and cranking up the air conditioner.
Today is Ten on the 10th. Y’all know it’s one of my favorite posts each month. Today’s theme is a little varied. Mother’s Day, End of School, and Spring/Summer. Before I go much further, I want to thank Katie from Let’s Add Sprinkles for hosting this month!
My theme this month is End of School/ Summer.
When my boys were small I loved giving them a little basket full of goodies to kick the summer off. Unfortunately, my boys have all grown up, so I decided to make my niece, Beep, a goody basket!
I made a fun hooded towel for Beep, which was where I started with my basket’s theme.
My boys used to love the hooded towels when they were small.
The towels covered their head and were generous enough to wrap up their bodies.
These are SUPER easy to make. All you need is a bath towel and a hand towel. I’ll be sharing how to make these soon!
Next, I hit the Dollar Tree to find a basket and a few goodies.
I found this pretty pink basket, which was the perfect size for what I had in mind.
Once I got it home I added Beeps name to the bucket with some vinyl I cut out on my Silhouette.
I also picked up a fun water bottle. A Girls gotta stay hydrated!
I also found a plain pair of sunnies, which I later added some fun butterflies to bling them up a bit.
Some bubbles, a colorful whirly gig and a few sponges rounded out the goodies in my basket.
The sponges were cut up in strips and tied together to make water sponges.
When wet, the sponges are super soft and fun for the littles to throw around!
Total cost of all things fun in my basket came out to $9.94!
If I count tax, I may have gone over slightly but I think the extra .80 was worth it!
The next stop is at Apple Street Cottage. Then when you are finished there, please join me in visiting the rest of my fellow Ten on the 10th bloggers!
