The gift of a handwritten letter with Scribble and Daub
A couple of days ago, whilst on holiday from school, my youngest daughter heard the letterbox knock and ran to the door. She came through to me in the kitchen with a small handful of post. To my surprise there was an envelope, handwritten, which looked like a little note (and not a bill - ...

Thinking of which presents to ask, what party theme to choose, which friends to invite, preparing the invites for the big day. It is all so exciting and makes children feel so very special. We already know ...

Practising English with Storytime Magazine
Bringing up bi-lingual, multinational kids has many advantages. The main one being that, from a young age, they speak two languages fluently, without thinking about it. But I have had to put some work into it. Speaking English whilst living in France was relatively easy -- I just had to be strict (mostly with myself) ...

I remember taking home all of my Valentines cards ...

Coloring Without Borders is incredible! From the sadness of the crisis at the US border earlier this year, where hundreds of families were separated, a beautiful project with a wonderful mission hatched : to help end family separation and to reunite all families who remain torn apart. The concept grew and grew with more than 80 talented artists creating sketches and illustrations from around the world. More than just a simple coloring-in book, this encourages children — both Spanish and English speaking– to colour and use the space that the artists have created but also to create something more beautiful, to express themselves with their imagination. And even to color over the lines... without borders! Hundreds of copies of the book have been sent to children who have been separated from their families, and 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the book goes to Families Belong Together. We love everything about this idea! ️ What a perfect gift for every child you know. Read more, tap on the link. @coloringwithoutborders @fams2gether #familiesbelongtogether
