A never-going-bad sandwich (great kid’s book!)

A never-going-bad sandwich (great kid’s book!)

Thank heavens it’s summer! If you’re a little like me, you have no idea what to put on the school-bring-a-long-lunch-sandwich of your kid… So, why not sit with your little one and browse pages of sandwich-possibilities? Plus: who does not want to have a sandwich book on the coffee table or bookshelf? It will never […]

Pustespiel – or how to create your own maze

Sometimes children get inspired by something they find by accident. Marlis’ daughter opened a book from the book shelf and found a nice way to craft her own spectacular maze.   With some paper, glue, tape, scissors, paint, and toilet rolls it is very nice to make something like this. And when you have a […]

The Icebook: a life-sized paper theater (film)

The Icebook: a life-sized paper theater (film)

A cut-out theater entirely made of paper, combined with projected images to create a moving story book. And NO, it’s not an app. It’s called the Icebook and it is a phenomenal project by Davy McGuire (a director of film) and his wife Kristin (choreographer and dancer). You should take some time and watch this beautiful story […]

How a jaw dropping chalkboard drawing was made (stop motion)

Stunning. Awe amazing. Jawdropping, too. I’m not jealous of this beautiful chalkboard drawing by Alison Owen. Not at all. I’m just hoping and wishing that one day I will have something like this in the house. One day – preferably in the not too far a way future… (check out the stop motion of how […]

Street Poetry in Rotterdam

Street Poetry in Rotterdam

A hand-lettered poem, right in the middle of a rather dodgy* part of town, found on a rainy day while roaming the city with my 6YO. Love it.     *) Well, dodgy… this is according to Dutch standards, so it actually is a pretty decent area, I suppose. It just looked rather gloomy on […]

1 owl, 3 kitties & a Suppentopfhaarschnitt

1 owl, 3 kitties & a Suppentopfhaarschnitt

  This book caught my eye. I think it’s the naive drawings – and the fact that the blue eyed girl with the Suppentopfhaarschnitt reminds me of a horror movie. Can’t remember the name… wie heisst dieser Film doch?

House from UP (balloons not included)

House from UP (balloons not included)

Wonderful, this life-sized house from Pixar movie ‘UP’! They even copied the the light above the front door and the painting in the nursery. But what I love most in this video is the little boy who’s ready to believe this house could fly away too, just like the one in the movie. (found on […]

I wish it would rainbow

I wish it would rainbow

This book is all about the weather: it explains how different types of weather develop. I always wonder about the importance the weather has to grown-ups – it’s our favourite topic to talk about! Sometimes just because we don’t know what else to talk about, but also because the weather has such a huge influence […]
