This is not really so much a homemade birthday gift for a preschooler (over 3), as it is an embellished and personalized one. Get a life-sized infant doll with a soft body at a big box store for about $10. Then go to the dollar store where you can find onsies, even dresses, baby powder, small packages of newborn diapers, blankets, etc. Give the doll a name (I chose Nelly) and make a bracelet. (The doll can also wear some of the birthday girl's things from when she was a baby). You may find some things at yard sales as well, if you begin early enough. The whole set was less than $20.
Approximate Time 1 hour, plus shopping time
Tip: If you give the doll a name, it makes it more fun to give the "baby" things at Christmas, etc.
