If you have young kids, you’ll want to subscribe to MaryLea’s blog, Pink and Green Mama. MaryLea is a former art teacher and her creative ideas for little ones shine. Sometimes it can be scary to attempt art projects for the toddler set, but she’s not afraid and highlights ideas that work for all ages. Here are a few of my favorites:
(isn’t that so much better than getting six different “#1 Teacher” mugs, or, my all-time favorite gift from a student: USED EARRINGS! And no, I’m not joking).
And my absolute favorite thing from her website that I MUST DO once my babies are older: birthday quilts for each child, made out of favorite baby clothes they outgrew. As if that isn’t genius enough, MaryLea plans on making a photo book for each child with stories and photos of them in the clothes. BRILLIANT!
Thanks for the great ideas, Pink and Green Mama! Noodle is finally getting old enough to do some projects, and I can’t wait to get creative with her. Thanks for the inspiration!
