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!
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!
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?
The idea of a fashion brand having kids model their grown-up clothes is all kinds of fantastic. Love these photos!
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.
A young Jim Henson teaches you how to make puppets with socks, tennis balls and other household goods.
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.
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.
This lightweight unicorn shaped pillow unzips and flips into a travel neck pillow. So fun!
