I had never heard of this idea before this summer, and now I have used it at two baby showers . . . Parenting Tip Cards. It is a simple idea . . . have some note cards out so that guests at the baby shower can write parenting tips on the cards for the Parents-to-be. The idea is that they will get some tips and ideas from people who have been new parents before . . . those things that you say later “I wish someone would have told me that!” Things that I tell people are usually money saving tips, like instead of buying the cute burp towels, buy a package or plain white cloth diapers. They do the same job and are MUCH cheaper.
The shower I am helping with for this week has an Owl Theme, so we decided the cards should say “Words of Wisdom” on them and have a wise owl image. Here is what I created.
This was also a great way for me to use up scraps of paper, since I just needed small little owls. It was fun coming up with all of the different color combinations from my scraps.
What words of wisdom would you have for a new parent?
