We have done this project for several years now. We like it because it is easy to involve people of all ages. In addition to making the blankets, we make cards to go along with them.
We ask each family to bring fleece. Many choose patterns (girl or boy) to go along with their family members. We also suggest various sizes for blankets from baby to teen. Its so much fun to sit around working on the blankets.
It's just a sweet time of fellowship and fun for all of us. The Moms all thought it was like being at a quilting bee. Quite fun!
Of course, there is time for goofing off and having fun too!
Gathering most of the group for a photo with the blankets.
The kids were proud of their work and I love them having as many opportunities as possible to give and serve others.
