The past 2 years I have volunteered to make "hockey mom" gifts for our home hockey tournament. Many times when you go to junior league hockey tournaments the home team will give out little gifts to the moms (or dads). Most of the time they are homemade little trinkets with the child's name and/or jersey number. A little something to show our appreciation to the parents for supporting our tournament.
Last year we made wooden star pins. Each star was spray painted each teams color. We added the players name and number to the front and hot glued a pin to the back. They looked great! Lots of moms wore them during the tournament.
This year we decided to go a different route and make keychains. Each keychain has the teams colors, number beads, and a wooden star with the players name. We just finished making them today---198 of them!! It was a lot of work, but again, I think they turned out great! I hope the other mom's like them as much as I do.
Now to start planning for next year..... :)
