VALENTINE'S DAY CRAFTS
My Funny Valentines -- Cute last-minute Valentine card idea!
These are the easiest (and super last-minute friendly) Valentine cards. Very handmade, perhaps even a bit homespun, which I think adds a bit of character... quite endearing! In addition they are funny and fast to make! You can use collage materials and a bit of clever wording, and presto! We used pieces of wrapping paper ...

Sweet and sugar-free Valentine's party
I love to create small and sweet celebrations out of holidays, and Valentine's Day is no exception! While I was heavily pregnant last year, I wanted to do a fuss-free Valentine's Day 'baking' activity with my daughter, but without the dreaded sugar crash afterwards. So we made watermelon hearts, which are bake free, and only sweet ...

Sweet illustrations, by Laura Uy
Laura Uy is a Canadian illustrator with such a lovely, playful style. Her work mainly focusses on greeting cards and prints, which make great decor pieces for children's rooms. I love that bear in the photo above, so whimsical (the gold stars are hand-painted and make the print extra pretty). Laura's greeting cards have such sweet illustrations with the cutest puns. There are cards for ...

Valentines craft -- love birds
Happy Valentines Day! Our kids woke us up with the sweetest handmade Valentines cards this morning... But I had nothing prepared! So I quickly made these 'lovebirds', by folding a piece of paper in half and cutting it in a heart shape. A piece of masking tape keeps it closed and forms the beak. Inside ...

If you have a sewing machine, this Valentines decoration is easily made, and my kids really liked the project! Just potato-stamp hearts on paper; I used plain brown craft paper but you can use any sort really, even newspaper.  No need to be perfect here, my 2-year-old had quite some production going.  (If you stop ...

Bring meaning to your life. With Love Darling is the first jewellery company to have interpreted the UN Global goals by way of a dedicated collection. At @withlovedarling “we have set out to create a community around our jewellery, curating an experience to live & breathe the Global Goals. Our jewellery is aesthetically pleasing... but also carries a deep rooted meaning and symbolism. It has a higher intrinsic value which is over and above the gold value, as customers increasingly desire to contribute to #sustainability . Our pieces are made in workshops employing #refugees and displaced persons - giving these people an income, a future and hope.” Pretty amazing, huh? Oh wait, they also have a 25% off deal this month, link in bio. #babyccinoboutiques ... link in bio. #babyccinokids

A while ago Esther painted a very dark green square on her living room wall, with the idea to use it to display all sorts of pretty little things: drawings from the children, autumn leaves, our activity advent calendar, a collection of plates or framed art… Things we feel are meaningful and which we like to temporarily display in our living room. The shape of a painted square brings cohesion to the things on display, and the big, dark shape breaks up the wall. So simple and clever! Read more on the link. How do you display your seasonal collections? #babyccinokids #babyccinocrafts
