For all you Montessori Mommies referring to my blog for material ideas, the "Martha Stewart Holiday Handmade Gifts" magazine that is currently floating around has a pattern for stuffed crocheting balls that you can make for your little pumpkins. They're especially wonderful for 4-7 month olds who are tummy crawling. Make sure you don't overstuff them though, you want to stuff enough so that it rolls, but leave enough room so that it will give when they grasp it with their fingers. That will enable them to hold onto it easily. They would also make great gifts for anyone who recently had a little one.
