This week Chloe had the flu so when she finally felt better yesterday, we decided to do some crafts. She has loved folding her own paper airplanes for years now and she was particularly excited about this kit, One Minute Paper Airplanes ($12.01 on Amazon by Andrew Dewar (published by Tuttle Publishing). Finally she said she could make a really fast high-flying plane. The kit comes with 12 beautiful planes that can be easily popped out by my 6 year old. It comes with a 32 page color booklet with instructions and also comes with a rubber band catapult launcher.... Continue reading

Origami is a fun craft for kids to do. I love how you can take a small, flat piece of paper and turn it into a wonderful 3D object. Trying to teach Chloe has been slow going because for the most part, instructions I've found online or inside a package of a origami paper set, haven't been too clear. Now with the My First Origami Kit ($13.46 on Amazon) by Joel Stern (published by Tuttle Publishing), Chloe and I have been having fun making cute animals. The kit comes with everything you need which I love because you can easily... Continue reading

If you're a parent, chances are you have many of the Toca Boca games on your mobile phone or iPad for your kids to play with.

Toca Ink ($10) was created in collaboration with Virginia Elwood, a renowned Brooklyn-based tattoo artist. These temporary tattoos would also make great stocking stuffers or birthday party favors. One pack of tattoos includes 8... Continue reading

Around my house, Chloe can't get enough of making her own little story books. The creative folks at Wee Society have a great DIY project for your budding writer. Just download the fill-in-the-blanks story worksheet which includes instructions for DIY stamps and ideas for illustrations (inspired by Ed Amberley). I also love their alternative to candy on Halloween night like little toys, stickers or temporary tattoos to pass out. These super cute Spooky Spider or Boo Crew Tattlys are designed by Wee Society. Finally, if you still are looking for costume ideas, check out their paper bag DIY costumes from... Continue reading
