Mini Me – Copenhagen's coolest kicks for kids
If Copenhagen has a particular destination ‘high street’ – not so much high street stores as delis, flower shops, bakeries and independent bookstores all beautifully wrapped in a local neighbourhood vibe – then Gammel Kongevej in Frederiksberg is it.

Share those rainbows of hope in your windows! These are from @laraoflondon Tag us on your rainbows so we can share them. And top tip : Kitpas are great and masking tape acts as a temporary ruler. Make a homemade ‘compass’ using string tied to the end of the crayon gives you a very professional looking rainbow. #babyccinokids #babyccinocrafts

Dear friends, How are you? It’s a different world! Some of you may have been house-bound for a while now, and for some of you it’s only just beginning. Working from home, schooling from home, spending less time outside… No playdates, no sports or hobbies, no little trips to parks, pools, museums or even family. And even though we are physically further away from our friends and families than ever before, I feel that the world is bonding and reaching out to one another. On social media, so many artists are sharing work and so many companies are coming up with the most wonderful creative craft projects. On a local level, neighbours are helping each other out: cooking and baking and shopping for elderly people. In all of this time’s uncertainty, this is the stabile truth: we people take care of one another. WE matter, not the individual. Not the I. Here on Babyccino, we will keep doing what we have always done for twelve years: to inspire you and offer support. We will be sharing ideas from our archives as well as new posts, focussing on simplicity, togetherness and positivity. We will of course also still be supporting our community of wonderful small businesses! Stay tuned for our highlights on : Crafts & Creativity Toys & Games Recipes & Making Books & Films Housekeeping & Organisation Exercise & Health If there is anything you would like to hear more about, please let us know. We care, we share. Wishing you and your family and friends well. Stay safe everyone! Love, Our global Babyccino Team

Today’s activity from is based around looking at things in nature that you might normally miss. Use an old egg carton to create a collection of tiny things - fallen leaves, twigs, rocks or flowers that are on the ground. ‘Plant’ each one into a different hole in your egg box. What does each one look or feel like? Sometimes it’s the little things that remind us just how extraordinary life can be. @rachel_m_williams #slowdownthebook #naturecraft #itsthelittlethings #naturecollections #kidsscience #kidlit #babyccinokids #babyccinocrafts

An activity based around the many phases of the sky’s brightest light: the Moon. Each night, the Moon appears to have changed shape. In fact, it’s just going through it’s monthly journey around Earth. As it travels, it goes through eight different phases, called a lunar cycle. Make your own wall chart and learn about each phase. @freyahartas @rachel_m_williams #slowdownthebook #naturecraft #nightsky #phasesofthemoon #kidsscience #kidlit #babyccinokids #babyccino
