    How to Make Hooded Towels for Kids

    Read on to learn how to make the cutest hooded towels for kids! I’m not a sewer, but this was so easy! When my oldest son was a toddler, he was very particular about bath time. He wanted to wash himself. He wanted to play for hours. And he was very (very!) picky about his towels. You see, my friend made a really cute hooded towel for Jackson forever ago, and it quickly became his very favorite towel of all time. Every single time I pulled out any other towel, he’d whine about the lack of a “hat”. He was always giddy when his hooded towel was one he got…

    Welcome back, friends! It’s day three of seven straight days of DIY ornament ideas, and today is one my kids loved and I, frankly, felt a little frustrated by – DIY wood slice ornaments! Why did I feel frustrated? Well, because as much as I’d love to be the type of person with beautiful penmanship and a skilled hand when it comes to painting…I’m just not.
