Big Brother Kits

Before my sister-in-law had her 3rd boy recently, I wanted to make something for her older boys for when they visited in the hospital or for at home or whatever. You know, stuff to keep 2 little boys quiet & busy for a minute or two!

So I put together a couple Big Brother Kits for them:

Each bag had:

-a notebook
-homemade crayons
-a Matchbox car
-set of stickers with sticker album
-a juice box
-2 packs of raisins (one yogurt, one plain)
-2 different packs of gummies
-a container of mini M&M`s

Stuff for her 4 year old boy:

Stuff for her 2 year old boy:

I`ve shared before how easy these crayons are to make. Kids love them! (See tutorial HERE)

They were simple to put together. Hopefully her boys enjoyed them!


  1. The boys LOVED them! Thanks again!

  2. I'm sure they loved them! I just recently had a baby and my mom did something similar for the big kids. Its so important not to let the big ones you already have feel forgotten with the arrival of a new baby. i always appreciate it when someone brings over a gift for the older siblings too, assures them that people love them too!

  3. Great idea! I'm visiting from the Two In Diapers Blog Hop. I'm your newest follower. I'm a fellow blogger at http://kaminskiscreations.blogspot.com/.

  4. that was such a great idea!!
    i'm about to become a mom myself - in a couple of weeks, actually.. i'm both excited and scared! i want to start some craft projects and i was actually writing a post about it this afternoon (i'll be posting it tomorrow night).

    anyway, cute blog! found you through 'two in diapers'. i'm your newest follower :) hope you can find the time to come visit (and maybe follow) me too sometime. have a great weekend!

    it must be (so)... liberating

  5. I did something similar for my little girls and they had to earn them by keeping their room clean. They loved it! I would love to have you come share your great ideas at the link party at 'Or so she says...', happening right now. Hope to see you there! www.oneshetwoshe.com

  6. This is such a great idea! Wish I had thought of this.


  7. Very cute idea! My sister was always very good to give little gifts for my step-son when I was pregnant, and now that she's going to have her 2nd boy (in two short months!) I think I'll make up a little bag like this for my nephew.
    @ Stacia, it is so true, it's so easy for the older siblings to feel left behind with all the gifts, attention, and time that goes into a new baby. Little things like this help them feel loved too! :)

  8. That is so thoughtful! My kids felt so left out when people brought gifts for the new baby (now 6!) This is such a great idea! I will have to remember it next time a friend with a "big brother or sister" has a baby. Thanks so much for sharing!

  9. This is such a great ideas! I am pinning this for future gifts. I just love the idea of having something new and exciting for the other kids to play with.

  10. Hi Sarah, these are so nice! It's always good to remember the older siblings when a baby is born and it's great to see ideas for boys, also. Thank you for sharing.

    Have a good day, Nancy

  11. I need one of these STAT! I have a sweet almost 2 yr old who is expecting his new baby brother anyday (or minute lol) now. Thanks SO much for posting!
