How about letting your kids climb Sweden's highest mountain "Kebnekaise" in their own nursery? The real Kebnekaise is 2,104m high, located in Lapland (northern Sweden) and about 150 km (ca. 90 miles) north of the Arctic Circle. However, this little beauty here is luckily a 'tad' bit smaller and warmer to be around. I think this is such a beautiful beanbag design. My son is in the "dive into anything fluffy" phase right now. So "Kebnekaise" would be perfect! Maybe not only for the kids to enjoy? Can you imagine having a few of these in your living room? You would be lounging on a Skandinavian summit! Very cool.
Go see the "smaller version" of Kebnekaise online at SMALLable, a wonderful shop with such original and sweet products.
Here is another sweet treat from Watotodesign. Maybe for the front door to the nursery? Or beautifully framed over the changing table? Or on the wall by a cozy glowing lamp? These little guys are there to make your little ones giggle, to make them smile and you can even come up with funny names for them. They are just so much fun to have around. My kids enjoy them everyday! Watotodesign Shop will soon be online people! I'm so excited.
I stumbled upon this great website Kideos that provides our kids with lots of fun, educational and age appropriate videos. In addition each video has been screened by Video Advisory Council before it was set up onto the site. Whats also cool is the free email subscription to their weekly learning tips, activity ideas or homework help games. It is such a friendly website, easy to navigate through and lots of fun to discover new kids videos; Kideos! Love the idea and so does my daughter!
How cute is this? An adorable fully "equipped" apron for our little cooks at home. My daughter loves cooking, either in her little kitchen in the nursery or with Papa in the "big" kitchen. This is a great look for a little cooking pro who always has the essentials with her/him inorder to whip up that tasty meal. Go have a peep at this sweet apron from Jamie Oliver. I would also take the chance to scan through some of the delicious recipes.
It is absolutely dreadful what is happening in Haiti! So frightning and sad! How can we help? We must help! We can help! We can DONATE to the following professional organizations!
Now every mum wants to create the perfectly styled birthday party for her 'oh so growing too fast' precious little one. You can definitely not go wrong with "Scissors. Paper. Cake". Wow! They sure know how to create the dream party down to every detail. I think my little ones would go 'bonkers' and feel like they were on cloud 15! I for one thing would probably be standing by the 'goodie table' all day, and probably also on cloud 15! Their website is a real treat too, with many more goodies! Happy dreaming at Scissors. Paper. Cake!
It is finally weekend and you and your little 'munchkins' can keep those cozy pj's on a little bit longer today. Why not start the day with something fun and creative with your kids? My dear friend Dinorah at Gizmoroo gave me a super DIY tip the other day; a Cardboard Doll House. Check it out at Elsie Marley's sweet blog. Its such a great idea. So simple to put together, and lots of fun searching through magazines together for the right interior of each room. Not only a project for the girlies. You can find cool interiors for boys too. At Elsie Marley's blog you can find much more craft goodies. Happy creating and have a wonderful weekend.
