    Boy or Girl? I've made some placemats for my grandkids to make their place at the table special . . . hoping it would keep them from jumping down and running around at mealtime . . . it helped for a little while. They also love the lightweight quilts I made them (approx 40" x 60" ) that they use for naptime.
    He or she might really like one or two of your little yo-yo turtles to play with!

    If it's a girl, make her a princess dress. :)

    If she has a favorite animal or toy, you could make a photo and make her a pillow with the photo - or tote bag for her toys.

    I'd make her a little bow tucks purse with her favorite animation on it.

    I think a little purse, too, maybe with kittens? Most little girls LOVE cats!

    Ok here what I have done, I made a tote and place a matching throw large enough so they could lay on it and color. Then I filled it with puzzles, coloring books, crayons, toys that they can use in the car.

    I agree with the idea of a tote for toys, for his/her room or in the car.

    Could make it quilted and then instead of batting, but cardboard pieces inside it for stability.

    Or buy a cardboard office box and hot glue fabric to it.

    Thanks everyone. I'm going with a tote with seashells, glue, glitter & wooden frames. This family has a beach house & I'll bet the parents will put the frames to good use.Lots of great ideas.
