Exquisite Corpse Drawing Game

This is one of my favorite drawing games to do with my 8 year old.

The Mother of All Hot Wheels Tracks

My eight year old would lose his mind if we had this Hot Wheels Track in our house.

The Carrot Project

Between April 2016 and January 2017 Martin Markstein carved daily carrots for his 4 year old son’s lunchbox. The initial intention was to make him eat the vegetables, but he apparently began to trade the carrots for “better“ food. One day he wanted that all the kids of his kindergarden group to get a carved carrot, too. So, of course, super dad that he is, Martin ended up carving 23 magic wands, arrows, bows and axes. This is stinking adorable. Also, lunchbox hero!

Tattly Tin

Want to earn super aunt status? Or need a fun gift for a party? Consider Tattly Tins. They are solid tins filled with a selection of 25 high quality tattoos designed by professional artists. Above pictured is the Funnest Pack. There’s also the Floral Pack or the Realistic Pack.

Fun Babysuits

These onesies made me laugh! Fun sized, I still live with my parents and, I believe you were expecting me.

Tooter Smart Flashcards

If my kids were still little, I would support this Kickstarter and buy a set of Tooder flashcards. The interactive iPad part makes it fun and parent-indepdenent. Winner!

Growing Kidney Bean

Will show this to my kids. But I admit, I thoroughly enjoyed it myself.

David Attenborough’s Light on Earth

David Attenborough has a new documentary about Earth’s most otherworldly wonder: bioluminescence.

Chow Crown

Yes, I am totally going to get a Chow Crown for my kids. I’ll put Broccoli on it. Just kidding.

Infento

A few weeks ago I was at a friend’s house in LA and he showed me Infento. This makes me want to be a kid! You can build various rides for your kids, with your kids. This is next level LEGO-kinda-play!

How Does Your Immune System Work?

La Linea

I watched Heidi on Netflix with my kids the other night, which they loved. It made me go down memory lane of shows and movies I used to watch as a kid. This one, La Linea is one I looked forward to every week. It is an Italian animated series created by the cartoonist Osvaldo Cavandoli. What are some of the shows you remember fondly from when you were a kid?

Here We Are

Here We Are is Oliver Jeffers’ latest picture book. It’s gloriously beautiful. In the heart. If you have a little one, buy one. His books are my kids’ favorites.

This Photoshoot!

The idea of a fashion brand having kids model their grown-up clothes is all kinds of fantastic. Love these photos!

A-Z Printing Set

Make a poster using these old printing sets which have never been used. Each set consists of the full alphabet in lower, or upper, case. The plastic blocks have a foam letter applied to them, which can be dipped into paint.

Jim Henson: How To Make Puppets with Socks

A young Jim Henson teaches you how to make puppets with socks, tennis balls and other household goods.

Our President Was Called Barack

A book for kids that tells the story of Barack Obama and how kids can follow his example to be kind and make change. This Kickstarter by Laura Olin gets my support.

Benjamin Brush

You are looking at a mighty adorably looking toothbrush that comes with an integrated speaker and music store. Choose a song, and it’ll play for two minutes- the recommended amount of time to get those teeth clean. My kids would approve of Benjamin Brush. Get one by pledging over on Kickstarter.

Common Sense Media

Under what rock was I hiding all this time that I have never heard of Common Sense Media? I told my friends that I made the mistake of showing my kids a movie the other day that I thought was perfectly fine for their age. It wasn’t. Ops!

Common Sense Media looks like the site I should have consulted first.
