Tips for decorating your child's space
Children are so playful and fun and it has been very rewarding for to me to represent a child's personality through their space.  A child's space doesn't have to follow all the rules that adult spaces follow and can be more whimsical and creative. I thought it might be fun and hopefully helpful to share ...

Wunway
I am a huge fan of the girls' clothing brand Wunway.  Their clothing is so beautiful, and unique, and so reasonably priced. Wunway was founded by three close friends Melanie Chu, Nicole Kim, and Ella Kim.  These mothers (they have 10 children between them) wanted to make better quality and better priced clothing for girls ...

Mouse House
As a child I received a custom made dollhouse for Christmas.  I loved playing with it and spent many hours re-arranging the furniture, and adding special little touches to it.  I still have a fascination with dollhouses and everything in miniature. Several months ago I found a vintage dollhouse at a thrift store and I ...

Claymation figures
My son Henrik loves to sculpt and make figures and creatures out of clay.  In the morning when he wakes up he is thinking of new guys to make and when he comes home from school all he wants to do is build new figures.  I have to tell him to stop sculpting to eat ...

Wooden Doll Family Portrait
Several months back I did a tutorial on Bloesem Kids showing how to make a wooden doll family.  The inspiration for this project came from the dolls designed by Alexander Girard and my son's drawings of our family.  Instead of the basic wooden people that you buy at the craft store I made our little family with ...

Spring Tent DIY
My son Henrik loves to make tents and forts.  He builds one practically every day.  This year for an Easter surprise I decided to make my children a tent that they could leave up and play with all day every day.  I used the genius tutorial featured on a beautiful mess invented by Rubyellen.  I then made ...

This year I found some ...

Girlie glue
My baby girl is almost two years old and still doesn't have a lot of hair.  For special occasions I like to put something in her hair, the clips do not work and fall out immediately.  For my daughter's hair I use Girlie Glue.  Girlie Glue is a hair accessory glue that is all natural ...

Super hero photo booth
A few weeks ago we threw my son Henrik a super hero party.  I thought it would be fun for the kids to feel like they were real super heroes flying through the sky saving lives, so we created a city scene photo booth.  At first the kids didn't understand why they needed to lay ...

Do you have stick obsessed children? Esther celebrated these collected treasures and created a whole birthday party around the theme! And we love this quote from @guardian : ‘And thus, sticks. For I have learned that boys like, nay love, sticks. But a stick to a boy is far, far more than an inanimate object. A stick is a toy, a weapon, a friend and a foe. A stick is adventure, possibilities, destruction and danger. A stick is, in the right time and place – or even better, in the wrong – everything.’ More in the link! #babyccinokids #babyccinocrafts #stickcollector #sticks

Author Joseph Coelho has perfectly captured the sensitivity of talking about death and dying to very young children through his new book, If All The World Were. A book which is lyrical, gentle, softly spoken, and helpful at the saddest times in a family’s life. @quartokids #babyccinoreads #babyccinokids

There are more than a million words in the English language. We remember the most common term and associate more complex or less frequent words with that. So the clever people from @mrswordsmithofficial have developed cards linking word groups together. To make this memorable to children, they developed learning tools designed by comic book illustrators. Super fun and memorable, the designs are instantly associated to the word. So clever! See more on today’s blog post. #babyccinokids #linguists
