  1. Cassandra R. says

    I would love for my kids to be able to unleash their creativity and foster independence and self confidence.

  2. Jenn says

    I hope my children have fun, adventurous childhoods – using their imagination and the world around them to learn, create and explore.

  3. Diane Slone says

    I want my child to have the time to be able to explore, create and develop her own interests

  4. Stephanie R says

    I hope my children have a loving, creative, grace-filled childhood. (among many other things)

  5. Sarah says

    Above everything I want my children to have security and love. I had neither and I find that nothing I do is as important as insuring that they do.

  6. kate says

    i wish for my girls to have a childhood full of peace, creativity, free thinking, love, big dreams, being brave.

  7. Amanda Martin says

    One that teaches her to grow up with self courage, self confidence, and most importantly uninhibited self expression!

  8. Carolyn Joslin says

    I want my children to be happy, to explore their world, and to be confident. I want them to know they are loved and safe, and to not have them worry about life.

  9. Amanda says

    I wish for my children to have a happy healthy childhood. One that they can look back on with a smile.

  10. says

    A childhood that he can look back on and remember fondly. One that will help shape him as an adult. A time when he could express himself, find himself, and be happy and confident in his own skin.

  11. says

    Thanks for the giveaway! I love your blog and have been visiting it almost daily since I found it about a month ago. It’s full of helpful info and inspiration — in fact, I’m working on a much needed art studio for my boys right now, and have taken a lot of cues from you. Thanks again!

  12. Amy says

    I want my children to have an open and creative childhood, where they remember what we did together and not what we couldn’t or didn’t do. Trips near and far, art and nature, and always learning with me (because they teach me so much).

  13. Kathy says

    I want my kids to have a childhood where they are free to figure out what they love to do, and then be able to do those things. I want them to learn to be creative in everything they do and to learn to think outside the box.

  14. Lisa says

    A childhood without worry and full of old fashioned happiness. We try to keep some of the innocence in our children by playing board games, turning off electronics, going to the drive in movies, cooking over the flames of a fire, etc. The giveways get us away from the TV and at the table spending time as a family. That’s exactly how we want our children’s childhoods spent.

  15. Sarah P. says

    I can only imagine what kind of artistic thing my girls could do with picking their own paper size :-)

  16. Amy Ordonez says

    Creative, loving, full of exploration and adventure!!! I love your blog and I am so sad that I have to return your book to the library…I think that I am just going to have to buy it!

  17. says

    I raised my oldest son in a typical “Tiger Mom” way, and I have to say the results are dismal. I’ve learned my lesson now and working really hard to change. Less academics, more hands on experiences. He is really so talented in art and LOVES to draw, so I’m working on his art studio now! I wish for him to grow up loving his childhood and remembering all his fun hands on and artsy experiences with mom/dad and little brother. Happiness and joy is what I wish his childhood :)

  18. Nina Valeo Cooke says

    My dad wrote for a newspaper when I was a kid. He would bring home the ends of the newsprint rolls. We would draw and trace for hours and hours. This is the closest that I could bring home for my kids. BIG art is the best.

  19. Samantha K says

    One where they know they are loved, one where it’s okay to get messy and have fun, and one that I hope they can look back on and remember as one if the happiest times of their life.
    Thank you!

  20. Nancy says

    What kind of childhood do I want for my children? One full of happiness and security. And love, tons of love! Thanks for the giveaway.

  21. Marina A. says

    I wish them a happy, full of good memories kind of childhood! If they’re happy, everything else will fall into place!

  22. Carolyn Maszczak says

    I guess this would be for the kids- but I have a feeling I’D be using this all the time! Hogging the crayons…

  23. sybrina says

    I wish my children to be generous and good listeners. I believe that doing these things will bring them happiness.

  24. Kiri N says

    My kiddos would love this prize! My 21 month old just started getting into crayons and markers and my 4 yr old loves art, too. :) thanks for a really cool giveaway!

  25. sara says

    I would like my children to have a childhood full of love, giving, exploring, creating, learning, gentleness, joy, and grace.

  26. Ross Olson says

    I really would like for my children to simply have a loving, happy, well-rounded childhood to inspire their creativity and a positive sense of who they are.

  27. Lea S says

    A childhood of kindness and joyous, creative exploration and learning, without shame or fear of belittlement.

  28. Tina Powell says

    This would be the perfect addition to our art sessions with my granddaughters every weekend.

  29. Julia C K says

    Funny, I was just thinking about your question the other day. The answer I came up with was “magical”.

  30. Kiri N says

    I would like for my kids to feel that their childhood let them be creative and imaginative when they grow up and look back at it. My hope is that they’ll also feel their abilities and interests were nurtured and they’ll be confident to be what they want to be as adults.

  31. R Morgan says

    I wish for my kiddos to have space and time to explore things that interest them- to let their questions and interests drive their learning. I wish for them to have love and peace.

  32. Jen says

    The kind of childhood that I wish for my children in addition to love is creativity. This would help! Thanks!

  33. MamaV says

    i wish for one free of standardized/high-stakes testing, with a balance between reading, math, and plenty of room for art and music and pe! ;)

  34. Christle Lambert says

    I want my children to know how to express their feelings through art and make memories that will last forever!

  35. marianne says

    Kids have such imaginations, and my kids have huge ones….I want them to know that their imaginations don’t have to leave when they grow up. Big imaginations make the world more fun, help you see things from different points of views, and helps you find other, different ways to solve difficult things that come up in your life. My kids see that I am an adult, I still love to draw pictures of make believe lands and things, I still go to the beach with them to look for mermaids, and still have no shame in acting goofy with them. I hope they never loose that pure joy and wonder about the world and what “could be”….

  36. Kristi says

    I hope she can play in mud, explore the creeks and find her own little treasures just like I did!

  37. Erin says

    A carefree, adventurous, exploring, joyous childhood filled with nurturing and wonderful happy memories.

  38. Nicki says

    A childhood filled with curiosity, adventure, creativity, and lots of imagination — sprinkled with lots and lots of fun!

  39. says

    I hope my children have a childhood of feeling safe, loved, and that they remember traditions that were meaningful to them.

  40. Lucia says

    I love this paper dispenser. I would be able to use this with my son, but also share it with all my children that come to storytime at the library. For all children, the ones I am related to and the ones I share books with each day, I want them to be carefree and playful as long as their world will allow it.

  41. says

    I wish for my children to have time to BE children. To learn, explore the world around them, and marvel at simple things. I want less media and more creativity. More time in nature and less time doing seatwork.

  42. Anna says

    I hope for a childhood that has happy memories, feelings much love and care, creative thinking and problem solving, perhaps enough problems to help them know how to deal in the current world, but enough sheltering not to be destroyed by it. One that will help them become happy, well adjusted adults – become self sufficient, ready to bless others and the ability to find joy in all things in life.

  43. Christina G says

    a happy, stress-free, worry-free, innocent, creative, playful childhood. not taking it to seriously or worrying about growing up to fast.. I hope.

  44. Kim says

    One filled with free time and the free reign (and encouragement) to pursue their interests and passions.

  45. [email protected] says

    A creative, happy one.

  46. Melissa says

    A FULL childhood….full of fun, full of experiences, full of love, full of learning. It’s so easy to just fritter the time away, I’m trying to be intentional with being present in each moment and filling it up, even if we’re just filling it up with snuggle time on the couch! :)

  47. Nicole says

    One that is free from judgement. Where they are free to explore, create, grow and love with no limitations-all free from judgement. They matter, and so do their thoughts.

  48. Stephanie says

    I want them to always feel listened to and respected. I want them to have plenty of healthy food and fresh air to play in.

  49. Jill W says

    I hope my children will reflect back on their childhoods and know they were encouraged, listened to, played with, challenged to be the best people they could be, and most of all, loved every minute of every day.

  50. Alison says

    Answering question… I hope for a very CREATIVE childhood for my kiddo! I really like the companies website and I like that there are a lot of creative indoor and outdoor experiences to be had. I love the shadow puppet fabric. Really neat company. I hope I win but regardless, I’ll explore their website more :)

  51. Aimee says

    simple and happy, If my children look back and remember feeling loved and treasured, I will consider my life a success.

  52. Kristine says

    I wish for my children to have a carefree childhood filled with paint, nature, blue skies, and smiles!!

    I wish a childhood full of wonder, love, passion and creativity. My son is very imaginative and it’s amazing to see the World through his eyes.

  54. Rebecca Feucht says

    I hope they have a childhood that leads them to a lifelong brotherly bond. I hope they have a peaceful, creative, nature-filled childhood. I hope they grow up knowing mistakes are how you learn and grow . I hope they never stop singing and dancing.
    I hope they will love to read. I hope they will always find something beautiful, wherever they are.

  55. Kara Miller says

    Fun and free to explore, but within boundaries to keep them safe. One where their father and I teach them to give, love, respect and always be honest, by setting that example for them.

  56. Amy Griffeth says

    I hope for and wish they would have a childhood where the adult worries and problems don’t affect them. I hope and wish they are free to explore and play outside and inside. I hope they are able to have rich experiences that will build their abilities, and confidence… I know it’s not much… ha.

  57. Melissa Ferguson says

    I wish for time and space to play and be children and to know they are surrounded by love.

  58. says

    I wish, and try to create, a childhood for my boys that is safe, one filled with fun memories, creative play and learning, the wonders of nature, and the delights of discovery.

  59. Katie says

    A childhood filled with art, music and irish dance, mixed with lots of love, faith, understanding and good health.

  60. Kaidi says

    One filled with imaginative play, adventures, and laughter. One where they feel supported in exploring their curiosities.

  61. Sarah says

    I want my daughters to grow up believing that they can do anything that they set their mind to and know that it’s okay not to be the “best” at something, but rather that it’s more important to enjoy learning. I want them to love who the person they are and still be happy for others who may have or be different from them.

  62. Crystal B says

    This would be great! I was actually at Ikea yesterday (I know its not the same brand, but same holder) and forgot to pick one up. Winning would save me a 45minute drive :)

  63. Geri says

    A childhood that allows for their natural curiosity, giving space to explore nature and art, while developing lifelong learners.

  64. says

    I wish for their childhood to be full of “freedom” to dig in the dirt, build and then tear down…to play and make messes…and I also want them to look back and remember how much their parents loved them AND each other.

  65. says

    I wish for my kids a childhood of acceptance–where they know to accept others and that others will accept them. One where it is OK to have dreams and unique thoughts and create what they like as they allow others to do the same. One where they feel secure in themselves enough to embrace the happy times and rise to the challenges of that meet them along the way.

  66. Erica says

    I wish for a creative, relaxed, thought provoking, and challenging childhood for my two sweet kids.

  67. Sarah says

    One where the anxiety is about reaching the top of the slide, not the top of the class. A childhood filled with exciting challenges and experiences, always capped off with hugs and cheers.

  68. Maria says

    My wish for my children is for them to be able to sit around a table as adults laughing and sharing memories of their childhood together. I wish for them to look back on their childhoods with smiles on their faces, carry with them some of the things we do to their own children.

  69. Patricia Hay says

    Happiness, love, creative, and think outside the box as they explore and learn in many ways with art and an open mind!

  70. Kristin says

    I want our children to enjoy being children. I want them to spend their days learning, creating and exploring.

  71. says

    I want them to have a rich, wide, and deep experience of the world. I want them to tackle adversity so they know they can overcome it.

  72. Mandi says

    I hope my son’s childhood is filled with adventure, freedom and discovery. I want him to provide an environment where he can learn from the people and places around him.

  75. Danielle says

    I wish for a childhood where my children are supported in their journey to grow into happy, healthy and capable adults.

  76. Noel says

    …one where they were allowed to build, explore, make a mess…try it out, create, re-work and recycle, while using simple objects and materials they have within their reach.
    My parents started a non-materialistic legacy way back when and some of my fondest memories are of making little fairy mud villages with sticks and miners lettuce canopies.
    I am grateful we still have sticks, mud & miners’ lettuce so that my daughters can play like that too!

  77. Lisa says

    I had one of these growing up, and I completely forgot about it. I think my kids should have one, too!

  78. Heather Kennedy says

    I want to be alive to play and create with my children. I have had a serious form of cancer twice and everyday I ask God to let me live to see them grow up. My major in college was Art Education so one of our favorite things to do together is art.

  95. Elizabeth Vowell says

    I wish for them to have freedom with their imaginations. You are only a kiddo once! I also think that ideas are the new commodity so I hope it provides fun when they are kiddos and helps them with their livelihood as adults. Double whammy!

  117. Laura F says

  118. Samantha says

    I wish for one filled with creativity and full of fun. My daughter loves to draw such amazing things, they don’t all make sense to me but I know they mean a lot to her and she can talk for hours about what they are. I love that.

    I don’t know if there’s a pithy brief way to answer that question. I want my children to have an adventurous and exciting childhood that prepares them to live an adventurous and exciting adulthood. I want them to be and know that they are loved, love others, develop a love of learning (and reading and art and music and science…I could go on and on) and of God and of people. I want them to dare and risk and try and fail and succeed and fall down and get back up and create and imitate. I want my children to LIVE life, and I want to do it all alongside them for as long as I can.
