There is a treasure trove of wonderful ideas in the comments from yesterday. So many great childhood memories, new ideas for little ones today, and just really simple and lovely thoughts on nature and kids. Be sure to read a handful when you have a moment (as inspiring as it was, I don't advise staying up until the wee hours of the morn reading them all). I know I'll be visiting those comments when some fresh ideas are needed. And be sure to be on the lookout for I Love Dirt! at your bookstore or library - it's a wonderful resource.
Speaking of books (ahem), I thought it would be fun today to take a moment and browse through The Creative Family Flickr pool with you!
So much child/parent/family creative goodness happening, so much color, and so much fun..and noise, too (can't you just see the noise?)!
I am LOVING the photos you're sharing there! (As are my little ones - who, especially, do a little dance everytime they see a new banging wall show up..and then promptly ask when we can visit that one). Actually seeing what's being done with the book out there is such a huge reward and joy...and hugely inspiring seeing all the twists and turns and tweaks that you've put on the projects and ideas, in your own creative families. I think you'll find the photos inspiring too, if you haven't seen them yet. You can check out many, many more wonderful images in The Creative Family Flickr pool, where there's also a discussion forum. And if you're so inclined, you can add your own!
I hope you all have a lovely weekend....maybe with a bit of creative play? I think ours will be in the form of gardening, and baseball games. Summer, indeed!
