These DIY badges are terrific for your little heroes. I also happen to think they’d make great party favors. Cleo of CleoMade is here with not only instructions on how to make these but a free download to use and print. All you have to do is visit: http://www.cleomade.com/ and click on “Badges for Mom Inc” on the right. Enjoy!
