Pint-Sized DIY Projects

Who doesn’t enjoy getting creative every now and then? Taking a cue from the grown-ups and their love of DIY projects, our little ones are getting in on DIY fever with “design-your-own” kits that are the kids’ products du jour.  Not only do they promote creativity, they’re a great way to help kids express themselves — plus they’re just lots of fun.
 
Here are just a few of my favorite projects that let kids DIY their hearts out:
 
Design your own tees: Draw a picture, send it off, then get your own piece of wearable art back in the mail.

Design your own backpack: A see-through window lets kids display their artwork wherever they go.

Design your own globe: Kids assemble it then color it in themselves with crayons, markers or colored pencils.

Best nature/environment books for kids

With the holiday season just around the corner, we turn to one of the best gifts for kids….books.

I know for my son Reeve (just about to turn 4) his first glimpse into the natural world was through books – he was so excited by things like shooting stars, beavers building houses, a bear hibernating, the sound of wolves at night, a caterpillar changing into a butterfly….

I often think about what would make my ‘best of’ list…  so I polled some friends including Lexy Zissu, author of The Complete Organic Pregnancy & The Conscious Kitchen.  Feel free to post some of your favorites to comments.  No doubt we missed some great ones. Read more…
