Using Your Imagination Fun Ideas for the Kids Pretend and Play

Over Easy Breakfast Set

Christmas is just around the corner and with that as parents and grandparents we want to find imaginative ways for the kids to play and use their imagination.  Both boys and girls enjoy playing with cooking and outdoor adventure things.  Instead of tablets and smart phones this year give the kids the world of exploring.  I can't tell you how many times I have been in a store or even at the zoo where a child is playing a game or watching a show on a phone instead of exploring the sites around them and the parents engaging in conversation.  Not to say this is all bad, I myself am guilty of turning on the television or tablet to get some peace and quiet once in a while but it all has to do with moderation.

Best Crochet Dress Pattern for Baby - Free Crochet Baby Dress Pattern

A sweet baby dress to crochet is one of the most fun pattern I have ever had the chance to crochet. After 3 grandsons from our son, he and his wife are giving us a new baby girl!  I was so excited that I couldn't wait to crochet little girl items. After crocheting the boys hats, stuffed monster toys and more I was looking forward to crocheting a little girls dress.  I wanted to start out with a simple pattern and find a dress that can be worn with something like a onesie underneath it.  I decided to make a size 3-6 month for the summer since she is going to be born in late winter.  
The yarn I used for this pattern is Bernat Baby Sport Pink and Bernat Softee Baby in Pink Flannel. I also used a Size H Crochet hook instead of an I for this dress using the baby yarn.  Although the free crochet pattern I used suggested using Worsted Weight Yarn this yarn worked out great for the dress and is super soft and easy to wash. The dress opens in the back with buttons. My only suggestion when crocheting a baby dress or kids item that may be washed often is to make sure when you finish off the item that you do it well.  I actually sewed a couple of spots in place just to reinforce the dress. 
The Free Pattern I used to crochet the dress is from Crochet Zone called Butterfly Kisses Baby Dress
