This idea may not be for everyone, but if you enjoy sewing, crocheting, or knitting, you can make baby blankets to give to crisis pregnancy centers! What a special gift you will give to a young lady who needs encouragement and support at a most difficult time. A homemade baby blanket will show them how precious these children are and let them know that someone else cares about them.

My mom loves to quilt (in fact she just won several ribbons, including the Grand Champion ribbon, on a quilt she entered in the state fair!). Being a quilter, my mom has lots of scraps of material around, so she has had fun in the past making baby quilts to give to a ministry at church. My grandma, who just turned 92 a couple weeks ago, enjoys crocheting.  She has kept busy making blankets and stocking hats for the pregnancy crisis center. So it really doesn’t matter your age, or your talent. If you have a desire to help others, you can find something to make and share!

Below I will give you several different ideas for blankets to make, along with websites and patterns to use!

Once you have a few blankets made, find a local crisis pregnancy center to donate it to. If you have some older children, get them involved in this project as well. They can work on the blankets during your read-aloud time each day!
