Wouldn’t it be lovely if all schools were as colourful and fun?! This is an elementary school in Paris which was transformed by Palatre & Leclere Architects – I bet they don’t have many absences! The clever crew at Handmade Charlotte unearthed this gem, and you can also see the entire collection of photos on the architects website. It looks like such a spot of colour in a gray landscape!
A fab toy and an DIY activity in one! Created by UK designer Oscar Diaz, the Tube Toys smart design features convertible packaging that transforms into the toy, reducing the waste to a single piece of recyclable paper. Each tube has pre-cut slots and holes to place the wheels axes and other components. Kids can build and then play! Made from recyclable and earth-friendly materials, Tube Toys let little roadies assemble and decorate their own new wheels! Available now at Little Living. $19.95.
I love that my kids love to collect things; rocks, interesting sticks, shells – you name it and we probably have a small collection. The nice ones even have jars with labels. Feathers, however, are at the top of the Desirable Finds list for them; and I will admit that I struggle with feathers.
Feathers are amazing. A treasure trove of interesting facts and fascinating to look at and when I am having a Montessori moment I also marvel at their patterns, colours and design… but after that I can’t get past the germ factor, and as much as I try and rationalise it, I find myself putting the feathers back where we found them and reaching for the wipes to clean every available surface and then some! I’d wash the feathers and let the kids keep them but I suspect they might not survive in all their natural glory, and if you put them in a jar – it’s kind of yuck after a little while… so you can see the dilemma.
Low and behold, look what I have come across at Handmade Charlotte. A Feather Holder. This might be the answer to my feather- dilemma. What a simple storage idea. This one is a lovely product designed by L’Atelier and you can buy it complete with a bits and bobs drawer (not big enough for our collections) or maybe just a DIY version would suffice. Maybe I could even make up for my Feather-Germ Phobia and help the kids make a feather holder on the weekend… and they can keep it in the cubby house outside!
Decorate, play and learn… Designed and made in Fance by Mimi’lou, this large world map wall sticker comes with removable smaller stickers featuring the names of capital cities, flags, animals and symbols from each country – the kids can add them to the map as they learn and explore the world!
