Here's the present that I ended up giving the one year old:
I found some yummy honeystick crayons tucked away in my gift stash and decided to make a pencil case to put them in. Its perhaps not the most inspired present ever, but I hope she likes it! I used cute girlie fabrics and appliquéd a toadstool design onto it to. I also threw in a matching set of covered button hair clips and ponytail holder.
I decided that the oilcloth fabric on my chalk cloth placemats would be fine for older children, but is not suitable for a one year old. I will either give it to Rascal in the future or another older child.
