3. Frame it
There’s also that one really special piece – a gift from a loved one with a special favourite animal motif, or maybe a babygrow with a powerful message on it.
Why not frame it and hang it in their room? As they grow, their old clothes in full view will spark inspiring conversations. They could even inspire bedtime stories about how they started life as a little activist.
4. Make memories
Many baby clothes have sentimental value. But when there’s no room in the loft, it’s time to get creative. You could cut them up and make a quilt or cushion cover for your little one’s nursery. Maybe you have onesies that have been personalised with birthdays and names – they make great keepsakes as patchwork animals.
You don’t even have to be crafty to reuse baby clothes like this – local sewers would be able to repurpose your items, and you’ll be supporting a small business too.
5. Dress the baby
Does your little one like playing with dolls, or baby-sized stuffed animals? Reuse your own child’s clothing to teach your kids to dress their baby, or teddy bear, at playtime.
This is a great lesson in learning how clothes work – so they can also learn how to dress themselves.
