The Wonderful Things You Will be by Portland-based author/illustrator, Emily Winfield Martin, is a beautifully illustrated book that celebrates all the ...

'Pass It On' by Sophy Henn
Florence is learning to read now in school and it's really interesting to see how she is taking a different perspective with books. She's independently choosing picture books so she can try and read them herself and she's so proud of her new (nearly acquired) skill. Over the weekend she read a little stack of books to ...

When both of my kids broke out in uncontrollable laughter as I read Eletelephony by Laura E. Richards, I knew we had a winner! Do your children love poems and can they recite any by heart? Today on our blog @slcorlis shares an interesting New York Times article on the value of memorizing poetry, which historically was very common (before the invention of writing, it was the only way to possess a poem) but has mostly fallen out of favor in more recent times (why bother memorizing something when you can simply call it up on your phone at a moment’s notice?). It speaks about the value of diligent work and the benefits that come from challenging ourselves, and also of the way the repetition involved in memorizing draws you closer to words and their meaning, and to the broader world of literature and human experience. What about you? Do you remember reciting poems from memory as a child? And finally, do share any poetry collections you’ve loved reading as a family. ️ #babyccinokids #babyccinoreads

LOLA Art Boxes are the most wonderful way to introduce creativity in your family. Every month, the talented @lotsoflovelyart team assembles everything you need to create three artist-inspired projects, including an introduction to the artist, recommendations on books or artworks to discover and galleries to visit, plus of course ALL the high quality materials you need to make a true masterpiece. Ava loved this craft project so much, and a subscription to LOLA art boxes is the number one thing she is asking for Christmas! You can buy the one-off boxes, but also choose to get one delivered to you every month (or two months). There are boxes for children aged 6 plus, but also ones that are perfect for smaller children (3+). The craft ideas are always original and clever, the materials are of great quality, and every detail is thought of and included. These boxes are a great gift! If you are in London for the ShopUp in two weeks, you can meet the LOLA team personally and check out their amazing boxes in person. They will be there both days!! @theshopup @estherbabyccino #sponsored #art #artforkids #makeart #babyccinocrafts

Conker spiderwebs! This is an oldie but a goodie, perfect for a weekend craft, manageable for little hands but also extremely entertaining for bigger ones. And it’s quite an addictive thing to do! You’ll need : Conkers Wooden skewers Any sharp tool like pointy scissors to make a little hole in the conkers Yarn Scissors Make 5 evenly spread out holes in the conkers. Push the skewers in the holes so they are tightly inserted. Choose a yarn to start with. With a flat knot, secure the yarn around one of the skewers. Start weaving by twisting around each skewer before you go to the next one. If you want to start a new colour, just knot the yarn around a skewer to secure it, and tie the new colour to the next skewer. Keep going until you’re happy. Lovely idea from @estherbabyccino #conkers #babyccinocrafts #babyccinokids
