Have you made peanut butter playdough with your kids yet? It’s so quick and easy, which is a good thing since it is often requested in our home. We first made it after seeing this edible playdough post on Make and Takes several years ago and have made it regularly since. In fact, I think […]
Kids Sculpture Projects and Ideas
Sculpture projects and ideas for kids, including toothpick sculptures, building with cardboard, wood sculptures, ice sculptures, and playdough and clay ideas.
Building Brilliance Magnetic Shapes are a set of construction toys that my kids have been using and loving for the past month and a half. And brilliant is right. These magnetic tiles are an awesome kids construction toy with sturdy, brightly colored translucent plastic that beautifully catches and filters both sunlight as well as artificial […]
Have your kids been building snowmen this winter? Like many of you, we’ve had more than our usual snowfall recently and Maia and Daphne have been reveling in it as only kids can.

We've explored and enjoyed several of Artterro's eco art kits over the past couple of years, including their creativity kit, several of their art journals, their bookmaking kit, their art dolls kit, and now their wool felt bug kit.

It's fun when you need a break from the water and the result […]
